Daily activities include, Writing work instructions and work processes, drawing and 3d printing parts, customer support for all post products. My co workers were great, management was good, but lacking in management experience. The hardest part of my job was balancing between completing assigned projects while also keeping up with all customer support needs and research. Most enjoyable was the real world experience gained.
Engineering Intern (Current Employee) – Newnan, GA – December 24, 2016
Working at Yokogawa has been a great opportunity to use the skills and knowledge that I have gained from college. I have learned to more optimally design my programs to benefit the task at hand. The management is great and very lenient with school scheduling. My friend from school and I can ask one another and assist each other in our projects. the hardest part of my job is the long distance commute to and from work. the most enjoyable part is being able to expand my skills and implement changes to benefit the factory.
Applications Engineer (Former Employee) – Newnan, GA – October 17, 2016
Everyday is pretty much the same. As a young professional, there is not much you can gain out of this place. The salary is pretty low and the company is full of people without college degrees. The management is pretty old-fashioned and not willing to do anything for the new and young engineers. There is no room for promotions since there are people without college degrees but with 20+ years of experience.
Project Coordinator III (Current Employee) – Coldspring, TX – August 4, 2016
The company as whole is a face paced environment with the ability to gain knowledge of new traits. As far as learning something new the company offers many aspects to expand knowledge based applications. The people are great to work with as some of the management team needs more experience in managing a vast amount of people.
Flexibility is must a working between SAP and Excel on a daily basis.
Report to several Project Managers while maintaining their budgetary projects and supporting their team of Engineers in office and on site. Monthly project reviews, billing, expenses, and inputting all time in SAP for contractors.
What I have taken from Yokogawa is learning how the DCS/SIS and ProSafe assist the customers to make first Oil. All testing is done on site then testing is done again on site.
the Management style varies with each department which, makes it a challenge
Hardest part of the job is communicating between departments, this is due to Management keeping everybody departmentalized
Most enjoyable part of the job is the people and having the customers in the building. Ordering lunches and having them brought in for the customer.
Cnc machinest (Current Employee) – Newnan, GA – January 24, 2016
I have enjoyed working at Yokogawa and have learned a lot over my 20 years here. I have learned the importance of making products to the customers satisfaction and caring about the quality of my work. It has taken me a very long time to get to the salary I am at though and think that I should be compensated more for all that I do and for the quality of work that I send out to the customers.It is also very hard to move up in the company. I have tried many times to Bid on other jobs to advance where I feel I have the qualifications only to have the job given to someone else and this has happened many times. Advancement and compensation is the only issue for me with the company.
Yokogawa is a strong technical, quality driven organization that comes together as a team to achieve goals. The current management is focused on innovation and committed to providing individuals with the freedom to experiment ways to succeed. Co-workers pitch in as a team. The best part of the job is the freedom to get things done.
Company contributes to 401k even if you do not.
Like most companies, PTO is used instead of Vacation plus separate sick leave.
