    I have been working at Panasonic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, forward thinkers, and giving back to society. Always looking to improve. Work like balance actually exists. Room for growth.

    Cons

    Need to work on breaking down silos. Not all groups know what other divisions are working on. Everything else is great!

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent and making efforts to improve always.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Panasonic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I accepted the position because the hiring manager was enthusiastic, I was provided an Audi company car, my salary was more than reasonable, and I could work remote from my home office.

    Cons

    The hiring manager disappeared after I was hired and I did not have resources in the field to contact for assistance. After meeting with DoD clients that I had built relationships with over the years, the engineering team would not follow up. Orders were delayed without notice or explanation. I left after a short while because their lack of professionalism was discrediting my reputation. I even had a hard time resigning! There is zero support for anyone working outside the Newark office.

    I have been working at Panasonic full-time

    Pros

    Top notch people. Global company.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move into new business areas. Bad work/life balance. Highly siloed company. Mountains of red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Panasonic needs to streamline operations. Many policies make it very difficult to work with small businesses. Eliminate silos between groups, companies, and divisions.

    I have been working at Panasonic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Panasonic corporation consists of smaller companies and business units which provide a lot of opportunity for growth to career minded individuals. The environment is extremely friendly to build both professional and personal relationships.

    Cons

    Learning resources for employees about the various business units can improve. Based on the range of businesses that Panasonic is in, this would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
