    I worked at Yazaki full-time

    Pros

    Yazaki is a fair company to work for. They pay well and treat their employees well. I had good experiences with supervisors, not like at previous jobs. I was trained well and they were always there to answer questions if needed.

    Cons

    Seemed a little harder to move up at this company.

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

    Pros

    Excelent place to build a career, plenty of learning opportunities in a global platform. Solid background but also adapting constantly according to always changing market. Leading by example and constant coaching is the norm for leadership team.

    Cons

    As a global company with Main headquarters in Japan, traveling could be challenging for sedentary people but at the same time this could be a plus for the globetrotting type of person.

    Advice to Management

    Global exposure/training bring incredibly valuable experience to mid level leadership (Senior managers) and although it may come with a cost investing in future leadership sets the grounds for an even brighter future of the company

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

    Pros

    - Good working environment. Very nice building
    - Very laid-back atmosphere.
    - Provide you with a lot of online and classroom training
    - Supervisors are very professional. At least mine is.
    - Company does not require new engineers to have a lot of background knowledge or experience to start, which is good for starters but not good for generating real competitive product.

    Cons

    - Salary could be more competitive to attract people with better education and talent.
    - Salary growth / bonus is not as big as competitors
    - Old boy network, which is not good for a big international company like this.
    - Some uneducated and narrow-minded engineers are often bias towards certain culture and certain country. This type of things shouldn't not be tolerated in such a multi-cultural company. If you decide to work for such a company, you'd better be respectful and smart about it. The company should raise the bar and hire talents with higher level of education and moral standard.
    - Company should push engineers for more creativity. Company loses a lot of business because of the incapability of engineers.
