    I have been working at Mitsubishi Electric US full-time

    Pros

    Resources are made available for you to excel at your position. HR is supportive, compensation is very good, benefits are well above-average, senior management is excellent, and good direction is provided. The company is still growing in a very competitive market. The vast majority of employees are suitably qualified for their jobs and are friendly and great to work with. The company does a good job in hiring the right people to fit the established culture. It has evolved from a sales organization to a more complete provider of solutions for the US market.

    Cons

    Coordination between departments could be improved. Due to rapid growth over the past several years, there is some uncertainty regarding roles and responsibilities. For senior management positions there seems to be a focus on hiring from outside the company rather than developing internal talent. Expatriate employees often are assigned leadership roles but sometimes lack adequate management skills; often just figureheads.

    Advice to Management

    Educate current, not just new, employees on the structure of the company and the organization of departments and responsibilities. Continue to aggressively develop industry partnerships and internal development of new products for the US market.

    I worked at Mitsubishi Electric US full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great product, very structured, great name recognition worldwide

    Cons

    Good Old Boys politics and promotion in full operation behind the scene through out US operation. Its it's amazing especially with this being a Japanese company. The face of US operations is mainly the Good Ole Boys not the Japanese.

    Advice to Management

    There have been and still is are lots of management material within your company all of them don't look like us. We have to stop hiring our best friends and neighbors for key management role, When there are able personnel already present of different nationality other than ours.

    Pros

    Friendly people working for the company. Generally positive work environment. MEUS is a market share leader in the industry, it's nice to play for the winning team. Most managers open to new projects or ideas as long as you take it on yourself. In this way there are a lot of interesting projects, new ideas, progressive approaches to business practices, but unfortunately as a result it is often not coordinated well amongst all departments. Some roles get a lot of benefits via travel & entertainment; MEUS spends much more liberally than other companies on dinners, outings, customer events, trips, etc. and can be a fun perk to partake in if you're in a related role. Excellent health care and retirement benefits. New, clean building (at headquarters). Work/life balance is generally encouraged and the office is cleared out most days by 5pm. Compensation is competitive. Advancement or lateral moves are a possibility for general support roles. There are a lot of employees that really love their job and want to be great at it, and these people are a pleasure to work with and around.

    Cons

    Lack of structure; re-orgs every 6 months. No consistency in leadership and lacked a clear path for the business. Changing priorities all the time. Never clear who the decision-maker actually is as many people force their influence - chaotic. Very few advancement opportunities particularly at corporate. Most people are not promoted, with higher-level positions often being hired externally. For employees looking to move up - there is no clear path on what skills are needed or how to get specific skills to get to a role, since even the higher-level roles change responsibilities all the time. Internally, roles & responsibilities are changed or filled based on a person and not what is needed for the company, often leaving big gaps or muddying up the responsibilities further. No clear of division or responsibility between departments - everyone does everything with lots of double-over work. No real programs or plans in place to support career advancement, increase diversity, or even strategies to keep high potential employees. Low performing employees stick around for too long. Budgeting is a challenge - seems there is not enough money for more strategic investments, key hires, or other activities. The open office layout at headquarters is a nightmare to work in. Not flexible on work lifestyle - working remotely is not allowed. Big gap in how different employees are treated: sales team enjoys events, outings, meetings, team summits, etc. but there is a serious lack of appreciation for support employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to focus on building a structure that works not just today but for the long-term, and stick with it. Build succession plans for all roles and identify employees with high potential. Consider an awards program to recognize top support employees, top sales team members, key projects, etc.

    I worked at Mitsubishi Electric US full-time

    Pros

    Certain department heads are great to work for, they just will not stand up for what is right.

    Cons

    Lowest paid HVAC company in the industry, do not take care of valuable employees and are not worried about retaining them until it is too late and you are turning in your notice. Management is a joke. The rules only apply to some, not all..there are also unwritten rules regarding compensation, you cannot increase more than 10% in a given year even if you receive a new role.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together...the competition is coming on strong and taking all good employees paying much better!

    Pros

    Great work life balance, open door all the way to the top. Lots of local support and strong commission plan. Lots of opportunities for job enrichment through special committees and focus groups.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than industry average and they will admit it but you will still make over 6 figures.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing salaries to be commensurate with major competitors

    Pros

    Mitsubishi Electric offers great benefits that are near impossible to find elsewhere. The company offers great opportunities to move into a completely different discipline regardless of qualifications. For example, if you are an administrative assistant, but have an interest in marketing, then it is possible even though you possess no qualifications. Short of stealing money or physically/verbally assaulting someone, an employee is free from fear of termination. If you decide this is not the opportunity for you and decide to leave for gender pastures, then fear not; the company will gladly welcome you back with open arms no matter how many times you leave.

    Cons

    Mitsubishi Electric is a difficult place for the overachiever. New insights, ideas, and process improvements are not welcomed. There is a complete lack of communication between departments as well as from management. It started out as American run, but Japanese owned. The Japanese came in, like an invasion, cared nothing of the American people, culture, or business practices. They speak Japanese constantly, are condescending towards non-Japanese, and do not include American leadership in any of the decisions and only mildly in the discussions. Their behavior can only be described as retribution for WW II.

    Management had no interest in developing employees. It is hard when they don't communicate with their employees. Promotions are only offered to the chosen few or those who make major screw-ups costing the company loads of money. I am confident that incompetence and being spineless are requirements to be a leader here.

    Advice to Management

    Management should invest in its employees through training and listen to their ideas. Morale will be greatly improved by getting rid of dead-weight. The focus should not be on squeezing pennies on important, basic things when thousands can be saved from frivolous expenses.
