    I worked at Yamaha Motor U.S.A. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice people make it worth working there. A lot of available positions for internal employees if you don't like what you're currently doing.
    Loan Pool
    Lots of lake time

    Cons

    Poor location
    Struggle between departments
    Poor communication with higher management

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs young dynamic people. If you don't change some of the old policies, you're going to have a difficult time hiring younger people.

    I have been working at Yamaha Motor U.S.A. full-time

    Pros

    Commute is nice in Georgia

    Cons

    Do not believe what the interviewing person says to you. He lies. He tells you what you want to hear to get you to accept the job offer, then changes it within the 1st 3 hours of you working there. He has done it to each credit analyst working there. He wants to back you into a corner so you have to do what he wants. He know that NO experienced Credit underwriter/ Analyst would work under these conditions. WATCH YOUR BACK..

    Advice to Management

    Please stop smiling to peoples faces, while plunging the knife in their backs. Terrible and SHAME ON YOU.

    Pros

    If you enjoy Motorsports, this company is for you. A lot of available positions for internal employees if you don't like what you're currently doing.

    Cons

    The vacation policy is so bad that even if you love your job, you'll end up hating it because you don't have time away. On top of this, it's about as corporate of a feel as you can get and the pay isn't great.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't change some of the old policies, you're going to have a difficult time hiring younger people.

    Number #1 Golf Car Company. If you have a passion for Golf, and sales. Yamaha Golf Car is the place. They are the leading company of gas fuel injected golf cars. Working everyday is like playing with toys.

    Cons

    Long Hours during peak season. Being a sales company can be a little stressful some times but is the nature of the beast.

    Pros

    Depending on your job and department, this company can be somewhat flexible (office personnel)

    Cons

    Pay is not based on the market level. There is a lot of "good boy" shenanigans going on. Minorities are not treated equally when it comes to pay and promotions. A degree means nothing if you are not part of the "In Crowd."

    Advice to Management

    Management should hire those that actually know how to manage as well as employees that are capable of doing what they are hired to do...WORK!

    Start paying attention to things that should be most important
