    I have been working at Kawasaki Heavy Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a fairly stable benefits with a decent starting wage and decent benefits. It is a large company that can move its workforce around somewhat to balance out work loads

    Cons

    Once you top out in salary, it stagnates terribly. They are not keeping up with area wages. Much of newer salaried employees leaving for better paying jobs. Benefits decreasing yearly

    Advice to Management

    Work on retaining talent. Too much turnover of salaried positions costing too much in retraining and continuity

    I worked at Kawasaki Heavy Industries as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are nice and very quiet. It's a good place to work if you just want to get money to live and not need to improve yourself.

    Cons

    The buildings are really really old. You almost get worry about breaking it.
    They never want to change. When you see something that is obviously bad and need to be changed, they don't like to listen to you.

    Advice to Management

    You need to improve. Get professionals.

    I worked at Kawasaki Heavy Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most priorities are for employees stay in company for long time. Climb ladder is for new univ grad hire only. Connection to senior managers key to promote. Japanese traditional hierarchy company man oriented - good or bad way.

    Cons

    Mid hired is disposed. Isolated. Turnover is high. Just used to use to take advantage on skill and experience. If you have relatives to employees or senior managers you know well, you are easy to accepted. Mid-hire, no connections, not know anybody is put you out of loop. Women never able to establish position or appreciated works.

    I have been working at Kawasaki Heavy Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Possibility to involve in the developments of Japanese big vehicles such as ship, aircraft, train and so on. The company is one of the big and traditional companies in Japan.

    Cons

    The scale of business is a little bit small. Most of their investment is for design technology, not for production one.

    Advice to Management

    More valuable investment for competitiveness in both the company own and human resources.
