    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Panasonic as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can learn new things, if you are new to automotive infotainment. Few Full time employees are genius and they are the only reason the product is good. Very good location.

    Cons

    Most of the workforce is Indians. There is no respect for personal time. Super confused work culture with multiple domain passing the responsibility/blame to other. Lots of politics among the engineers from different vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Create clear communication channels to engineers. Instead of concentrating on the work, people are more busy in redundant co-ordinating tasks among multiple domains.
