    I worked at Uniden full-time

    Pros

    People within the US office is quite nice. Most are knowledgeable, friendly, and down to earth.
    Enjoyed working with all of them.

    Cons

    The senior management member in Japan HQ is very questionable. Board member strictly goes by the direction set forth by the Chairman. Going down quickly. Shame on the management.

    Advice to Management

    Leave already!

    Go work somewhere else -quickly!

    I worked at Uniden full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people in the USA office. However the immovable object in Tokyo greatly diminishes the effort of the Management team.

    Cons

    From Tokyo, a megalomaniac micro manages the entire operation with an iron fist. He is nearly 80 years old, has lost touch with reality, and dictates in accordance to his recollections of 1970's business practices.

    Advice to Management

    There is nothing you can do. Look at the tenure of past management.

    I have been working at Uniden full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff in the a Fort Worth office is great. All of us are hard working and innovative. Products are good but mostly in declining categories.

    Cons

    A major downsizing and outsourcing has recently occurred. 2 months ago there were 120 people in our office, with the move to the new offices next month there will probably be less than 40 people. Most of the remaining employees are probably looking for new jobs because they aren't sure if the company will be around this time next year. Uniden Japan management does not have a clue in what type of operations or company they want here in the USA in the future. This has caused moral to drop.

    Advice to Management

    Uniden Japan needs to decide the future of the company now and let the remaining employees know...just so we can all get on with our lives.
