    I worked at JTEKT North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros: work/life balance, competitive pay/benefits. No office politics or drama and mostly down to earth people. Flexible work schedule and vacation time is respected and encouraged.

    Cons

    Cons: no leadership ... everything is bottom up approach. Long term employees lead to stagnation in forward thinking and creativity. Not many independent workers (lots of hand holding). IT is joke... dont expect anything from that group. More employees doing bare minimum (if that) than forward thinking employees. Engineering is more paper work than designing.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure organization with effective senior management. Remove people out of positions who have proven many times that they are weak and ineffective.

    Hold management and their teams accountable. The saying "that's not my job" or "I'm not doing that" is more common than it should be because no one is held accountable.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Rapidly growing company with opportunity to advance. Low stress, good pay at pay rate.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired on from temp company to full time. Training program is lacking. Lot of wisdom in the building but people tend to hold on to it rather than teach.

    Develop an objective training program, spell out progression track for employees who want to grow with the company.
