Harmonious & Friendly workplace

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A family-like working environment. Courteous and friendly subordinates and superiors. Learned 5S (Japanese way of housekeeping), Kaizen and Lean management. Open management, no office politics. A blend of both Japanese & Malaysian way of work culture. High mix, low volume production is the hardest part, while rewards and recognition from top management is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Pros

Remuneration & benefits

Cons

No job rotation

The current operation manager preferentail treatment, favouritism. What I do noticed that this dept does not care much of employees achievement but they do shared it out loud when you make a mistake. The most enjoyable part of the job is successfully resolve technical enquiries and not to mention the co-workers, they are the best.

Pros

Nil

Cons

Short breaks, Ask permission for toilet breaks.

Project Management is fun

Exposed to PMO job scope which is different what I've learned and worked so far, I've learned the concept/structure of project management. Initially, my point of project management view is just to manage the project and meeting timeline. Now, there are other factors also that contribute into successful project such as quality, procurement, scope, stakeholder influences, team players, etc.

the company is very productive and have good management

everyday there would be a short meeting to update work progress and what have been done. If there are some problems, there would be a detgailed discussion to solve the problem. Thus, it taught me to become a problem solver and communication with others. For me, an engineer is a good problem solver. The workers always helped me if there are somethin that I dont know. The hardest part is to develop existed design from zero into something to manufacturing production that can cut cost and reduce manufacturing time. lastly, the most enjoyable part of the job was my design have been turned into real and was given to the Sony manager in my department dring his retired ceremony.

Pros

helper workers

Cons

limited time for gaining experience since the training only 3 months

Challenging and systematic

I have 3 years working experience at one of the biggest, Japanese global electronic manufacturing company as an engineer. I was assigned to support production in quality issue related to parts. Working with Japanese has taught me about the importance of qualities in product as well as in task delivered. They emphasize on team work rather than individual achievement and the importance of keeping time to the job assigned has developed me over the years. I was also supervising few subordinates from multiracial background in helping me with daily task. This has helped me to understand more in working with cultural diversity and not to be biased to one another. I also act as Shift Supervisor working 12 hours/day to support production. I also well versed with computed productivity software such as Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point and Outlook) and Oracle which can be considered from intermediate to advanced level. I can also managed technical machine such as microscope, grinding machine and x-ray machine. Due to my responsibility which need to feedback analysis of defective parts, I need to send it to vendor for further root cause analysis. This has taught me about supply chain management and logistics where I need to communicate with planning team for replacement part and export team for returning of defective parts.

Pros

Learned quality management from top Japanese company

Cons

Long hours of working (12 hours on rotating shift)
