Company Culture

Unfortunately the executive team in upper management has a reputation for saying one thing and doing another. False information is a common practice.

Support from management

If the idea does not come from the executive management it probably will not be supported.

Teamwork

Not a lot of cooperation within departments.

Freedom to work independently

This is not exercised throughout the division. Fear of repercussion.

Internal Communication

Information is passed two employees hours routinely. The issue is "is it believable".

Gender Equality

Only if you join the good old boys club.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very little support especially from the HR department

Career Development

Quite often employees are required to attend training sessions which provide little or no true meaning to their job responsibilities.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation is issued unfairly. Executive team in upper management fail to understand what each and every employee do to add value to the organization

Office / Work Environment

Good to fair working conditions

Environmental Friendliness

N/A

Work-Life Balance

Fair balance

Company Image

Everyone recognizes the name Kawasaki. Their first thought is it's an exceptional place to work only because of the name. Unfortunately they may be disappointed.

Job Security

The company is going in a different direction which is not been conveyed openly to the employees. No job is secure at this time.

Workplace Safety

There is no training

Challenging Work

Much work is done with little direction. You must be a self-starter and produce results. Unfortunately favoritism is shown in this area. Many do more than Their share well others do very little.

Inclusive / Diverse

Much work is repetitious.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Upper management and executive are put in positions which they do not qualify for. Japan has much say as to who holds these positions. They move people around so they become a more experienced even though they are not qualified to run the business. American management or put in positions as a favor

What I like about the company

many of the coworkers are wonderful to work with.

What I dislike about the company

unfortunately some of upper management or not even welcome to participate in the overall business functions. Compensation and promotions are handled within a favoritism manner.
