Engineer (Former Employee) – Osaka – April 30, 2017
If you want to brush up your skills, this is one of the companies to work for. If you are fresh graduates, you may not be surprised as this will be your first job. But if you come from other companies, you will be surprised how they run their business and train employees. I left because its business didn't align with my dream.
Sales (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 28, 2016
Interesting products, get to learn something new everyday. Lots of freedom on the road. Compensation is great starting out. Work life balance isnt good unless you want to earn. Managers vary some are good others are terrible. If you are not management you are a pawn at any level, all employees are replaceable. Super Japanese culture, either you like it or you hate it. Micromanagement gets old. Younger smart people. If you are over 35 dont apply here.
Good starting salary
Micromanaged, no working from home, and there unspoken salary caps.
TECHNICAL MARKETING SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Itasca, IL – April 14, 2014
One of the best, and most difficult things about Keyence is that it will force you to learn and learn fast. You quickly develop the skills necessary to work and succeed. The managers are great and willing to work with you.
Technical Sales Engineer (Current Employee) – Elmwood Park, NJ – August 6, 2013
This company has great salary and benefits and chance for advancement for an entry level position. Extensive training program. Poor work life balance. Poor realistic job preview.
Q&A *a typical day at work- 10 hour day. Mon & Fri on phone. Tue-Thur outside sales days. *what you learned- technical product, sales and presentation methods *management- Young management *your co-workers- Young and all male staff *the hardest part of the job- transporting 160lbs of equipment in and out of manufacturing facilities for demos. *the most enjoyable part of the job- Interaction with customers.
