Panasonic was loyal to employees.
Technician IV (Former Employee) –  Coppell, TXMay 15, 2018
Panasonic Avionics was loyal to its employees when I worked there. However, before my lay-off, I began to see changes in management methods, likely due to corporate growth and greater implementation in to the Panasonic global corporate group, that indicated that this loyalty might be on the wain. I would not be surprised if Panasonic Avionics Corporation is required to implement union labor in the next 10 years.
Pros
Good benefits, collaborative attitude, growth into new fields.
Cons
If new fields fail, lay-offs and closures.

Discouraging
Engineering Technical Writer III (Former Employee) –  Lake Forest, CAMay 4, 2018
Everyone there has their head where the sun don't shine. Management has no time for you. Coworkers too busy to deal with your petty concerns. No feedback on performance, then suddenly this is your last day.
Pros
nothing
Cons
poor work environment, no cooperation at all, sorry, can't help you

Not a great place to work.
Bartender (Current Employee) –  Lake Forest, CAApril 19, 2018
I spent my first three years here dealing with a severely hostile work environment; I would have left if I wasn't the breadwinner. There's no clear career path here. Often put under managers who have nothing to do with my subject matter. Even when they move the racist, sexist folks into another department, the culture sucks. Often worried a singularity will form on the campus, people are so dense.
Pros
No accountability, so you're going to get away with a lot
Cons
Racism. Sexism. Stalkers. Threats.

Great place to work
Software Test Technician (Current Employee) –  Lake Forest, CAApril 5, 2018
A great place to work, high stress environment made it easier to cope with ample days off, free lunches, and employee appreciation days. Although it was somewhat challenging to seek promotions due to politics still a great place to work.
Pros
Employee apprecaition, free lunches, great team building exercises.
Cons
Politics

Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Lake Forest, CAApril 1, 2018
Fast paced, lots of work under tight time lines. Fun but can be very frustrating. Great new Exec Team, that will hopefully make sweeping changes so the company can continue to be successful. Lots to look forward to.

Systems Installation Designer (Former Employee) –  Bothell, WAMarch 13, 2018
My time there was great. Travel opportunities are awesome perks too. The department I was in had great leadership and encourages everyone else to pitch in opinions - unfortunate that I was a contractor.

Program Administrator II (Current Employee) –  Bothell, WAFebruary 27, 2018
Intense, busy days where you hit the ground running every morning where I've learned to juggle many tasks at once which is expected of you. The Panasonic Avionics Corporation work environment is populated with many smart and dedicated professionals where the customer comes first - be it internal or external. The hardest part of the job is knowing that your work is never done. I find it most enjoyable to help my Program Managers and the customer.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
Stressful

My coworkers are very good friendly people. The corporation offers above average employee benefits including partial 401K matches. The quality of software development management is poor.

Technical Writer/LAN Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WADecember 28, 2017
A typical day consisted of completing the work of 5 people. There are companies who will take advantage of people who wish to contribute to the improvement of the company position in the business world. There was the attitude that management was a separate and superior group to the worker.
Pros
Those producing products and services had a family type bond.
Cons
Management wasted a wonderful resource, the people producing products and services.

Confusion at every level in Manufacturing
Assembler II (Current Employee) –  Lake Forest, CADecember 20, 2017
In California, if you make less than $70,000 a year, you still live in poverty. It's not a problem if you live with family, but it becomes an issue when you are the only source of income. It's a very cushioned job, but with all the changes - new floor plans, new policies, quality inspectors allowed to take their spin on completed manufacturing assemblies, engineers dragging feet on drawing issues, and there are many documents which do not make any logical sense causing many issues.
Pros
Great benefits, above average pay
Cons
Little to no chance of advancement

QUALITY ASSURANCE SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Bothell, WADecember 20, 2017
Leadership is in a constant battle to do what is right without upsetting the apple cart. They will tell you they have your back but will switch to appease other managers.
