    Good to get your feet wet in the industry, but jump ship if you can.

    I have been working at Takata for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A good learning experience. Good starter job for a young student or recent graduate. Not a career unless you know upper management or kiss enough behind to move up.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. Every other negative review on here has it spot-on. Being a jack of all trades and performing the work of your incompetent program manager or sales team or test personnel becomes a regular requirement. Nepotism runs rampant. Little to no growth opportunity at the company. Those that don't deserve promotions get them, and those that work themselves to death get no recognition. Engineers (at least in my team) regularly work late under high stress and no sign of relief. Takata cannot hire enough support to replace the numerous employees that leave for incredibly higher paying and higher rewarding opportunities. Uncompetitive workplace, no motivation or reward for saving the company millions in engineering cost saving changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more feedback from employees, listen to their concerns, and do something to help! Happy and motivated employees = better products!
