Work/life balance and that is it
Corporate employee (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – November 17, 2017
JTEKT is great in terms of work/life balance and benefits. Outside of That, JTEKT is quiet awful if you are trying to grow your career. There's no training, no direction or leadership and you'll continuously be frustrated how managers make 0 decisions and everything is vague - aka very bottom up approach but don't expect to get compensated for it. Youll also feel the frustration when your co workers who been there 20+ do close to nothing and it's acceptable.
Work here if: work/life is at the top of your list (i.e the frustrations are worth the flexibility, not working > 40 hours, and decent PTO). Also if you are ok with not furthering career and growth.
Don't work here if: direction, leadership, and career growth is important. You won't find that at JTEKT. Also if you are a hard worker your mind will go crazy with how many slackers you'll have to deal with. Itll drive you crazy!
Pros: great benefits, work/life balance, flexibility.
Cons: very poor leadership, no ownership, no direction, "too relaxed management"
