    Pros

    Almost complete autonomy. If you came up with a good idea and it didn't cost money and you could find a way to make your own time for it, you got it. Great benefits too, but not great enough to justify cutting the salary by 40%.

    Cons

    Management going back and forth all the time, makes development hard. Budgeting runs the place which makes getting things done hard. Not enough people had the 'get it done' mindset, too many people wanted to play games.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing games. Cut the inefficiency. Don't let HR run the place.

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

    Pros

    I had various management responsibilities in supply chain, production and quality management. Many very good employees, many "lifers" who were genuinely vested in the company's success. Good benefits and tuition reimbursement program. Numerous training opportunities, I made several very educational trips to Japan factories that have greatly enriched my career.

    Cons

    Despite being large, multinational corporation, very poor mechanisms for movements between divisions. Some trouble with top management not understanding US labor trends vs Japan labor trends.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to promises that are made. Recognize, embrace and leverage the differences across worldwide sites.
