    I worked at NTN full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good
    You can slack off at work
    You can go to Japan

    Cons

    Management is horrendously incompetent
    Engineering management does not stand up for the engineers, makes them do maintenance and janitorial work.
    Engineers do very little engineering
    Pay is below average
    Training is nonexistent
    Safety is low priority
    You will be expected to crawl around dangerous and running machines
    Air in the factory is almost unbreathable
    Most of the senior engineers have left so the new onesite have no one to mentor them
    Japanese engineers can barely speak English, communication is difficult if not impossible

    Advice to Management

    Stop making the engineers work as mechanics
    Stick up for the people you manage, don't just be a yes man for corporate
    This is America, not Japan. There are significant cultural and work ethic differences. Just because it worked in japan doesn't mean it will work here.
    Get some properly translated manuals and drawings. It will be safer and more effective.

    Great benefits especially medical insurance.

    Very limited advancement. Promotions only seem to happen if you know the right people - a lot of favoritism. Even tougher for women - no female managers at Elgin location.

    Give everyone a fair chance at new opportunities.
