Kawasaki Motors Employee
in Irvine, CA

"Kawasaki (known as KMC in Irvine) is basically a country club full of untouchable and highly incompetent executives that protect each other. They became executives due to their years of employment at KMC and the relationships they built. KMC is in very bad shape due to their lack of knowledge and poor judgment decisions, but only subordinates get laid off. On paper, the Japanese control KMC, but in reality, they do nothing to eliminate the country club culture and local executive incompetence."

Sales Representative

"Old boys club unqualified to run the company"

What do you like about working at Kawasaki Motors?

"Benefits for retirement.Some nice people.Charming industryThat's all."

What don't you like about working at Kawasaki Motors?

"A-Most decisions are made by executives and managers to benefit themselves rather than the company, such as hiring more people to increase their job security and internal power, or approving expensive projects to boost their careerB-They claim to hire the best, but they had to create a kawasakI university to teach basic things to executives and employeesC-No advancement possibilities. There is a fraternity-like layer of executives and senior mngrsD-You get promoted based on seniority, even if you don't have the required skills or education. E-The organizational structure is very simple, you are either on top or you are at the bottom. They dont have different levels to promote you unless that somebody dies, is fired or quits the companyF-Almost all executives with just high school degrees or dubious degrees. These people think very highly of themselves, although they are destroying the company"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I don't see how to make a good suggestion because the problem comes from having executives and managers that don't meet today's level of skills and education required to be in those roles."
