No leadership support at all, leasership is out of touch with the field

  • Get rid of management and see if they would like to work at wal mart

The used to make good products

Upper management will steal your ideas and take credit for themselves, management has no problem telling you lies to keep you from quiting and when they have everything they need they will let you go

Company Culture

It's ok but it would be nice if they had more of a work life balance. Seems like they want you to put work first and always. Unrealistic.

Support from management

Upper management no respect for employees no sense of leadership, forward thinking or appreciation for employees

Freedom to work independently

You will definitely wear MANY hats...positive you get to learn many facets of the business, negative their expectations are ridiculous and unfair

Office / Work Environment

Very old school. Building is old almost falling apart.

Work-Life Balance

Japanese company if they could they'd make you sleep there. They look down upon people leaving on time to be with family

Suggestions for improvement

  • Time for a change, company needs new leadership and direction to advance. They need to remember it's important for employees to also be happy to help make the company prosper. There are numerous unhappy employees; they have high turnover. I also left because of the reasons above.

What I dislike about the company

Change is needed badly! Upper management is bad, verbally abusive, law suit waiting to happen.
