    I have been working at Mitsubishi Electric US full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work. Can be self driven to produce results. Good corporate support. Financially stable company so no worrying about paycheck posting to your account. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Training could be more plentiful. Career advancement appears to be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Tap your existing employees for other talents other than what they were hired.

    Pros

    -Health Insurance is about average but below industry standards; previously the medical & dental were better; now less choices, not as much coverage, higher deductions.
    -Health insurance kicks in on the 1st day of the following month after you start; if your hire date is May 30, insurance begins Jun 1
    -401k match is good
    -Annual Performance Award for regular employees;
    -Quarterly bonuses for managers.
    -Best: Having the respected and highly reputable Mitsubishi Name under your employers

    Cons

    Extreme Micro-Managers; People are so worried about their job security that they will intentionally provide the bare minimum in new hire training.
    Negative working environment, seems so many hate their lives or are unhappy and cannot stand happy and positive people. Most of the managers are fake and talk badly about their employees to other direct reporting employees.

    Advice to Management

    Grow backbones and quit being sheep. Stand up for your employees or what you think is right.
    Sr. Management: Just because an employee has been with the company for 15+ years does not make them qualified to be a manager. If that is the route you are going to continue to take perhaps you should have them trained in proper managerial practices and employment laws.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. They have great benefits.
    Their culture is very friendly with a nice & cozy work environment. They are very structured and are technology advanced.

    Cons

    This company is great for young people trying to gain experience but not so good for growth.
    Their salary is very low.
    If you are young and looking for growth & a great salary, this is not the place for you. If you are young and need the work experience, then this is the place, I suggest get the experience and get out while still young.
    This company is great for older employees or employees that want to do the bear minimum and retire.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better career opportunities for the young Millennials...
