    "A Good Culture"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Technology Analyst in Oceanside, CA

    I worked at Nitto Denko Technical Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is good. The weather is better. The people in the company clearly care, making it a good environment to work in. The benefits are top notch, in line with other large companies in the sector.

    Cons

    The salaries are low for the market. This is a consequence of being a 100 year old Japanese company that has a strictly top-down management approach. The business metrics are not in line with other companies in the sector. This can't be held against NDT because they don't not have a direct hand in the annual budget. That is decided top-down.

    I worked at Nitto Denko Technical Corporation full-time

    Pros

    People are friendly there, and you don't have too much pressure there. It is a good environment for research in a company.

    Cons

    Sometimes they do not care about the employees enough, not enough activities and company culture. Not passionate enough.

    Advice to Management

    Try to organize more activities and events, try to care more about the employees' health and needs. More scientific discussions.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Nitto Denko Technical Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Some of my coworkers were cool, and the work was very easy.

    Cons

    Management played favorites, no clear direction on how the parts were supposed to be.

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing favorites and when someone talks to you listen and make them feel like part of a team instead of one shift against another.

    I worked at Nitto Denko Technical Corporation for more than a year

    Pros

    Large company, very diversified, researching and developing novel applications in the fields of therapeutics and materials. Employees of diverse backgrounds results in a potential for learning many things.

    Cons

    compartmentalized, corporate politics, salary on the lower end of the spectrum. I did not feel like the interns were seen as future employees, moreso cheap employees to do routine work around the lab.

    Advice to Management

    Company outings for employees is good for company morale. Interns should have a set program with a finite length of time.
