Nikkiso has poor management and Human Resources as an employer, there is limited room to grow and salary is lower than average, according to a former employee at glassdoor.com
"Managers are not knowledgable in products, do not understand materials management. Poor HR department engaging in pettiness. Not a lot of growth opportunity and pay seems to be a little low compared to the regional average."
Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer says"I have been working at Nikkiso Cryo full-time for more than 5 years Cons: careless senior management, low compensations"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Nikkiso Cryo full-time for more than a year Cons: Company is handling completely from Tokyo, there is no authority or power from others. There is a high turnover for people in this company, average years of service there is 2 years which explains a lot. There is a no vision or mission for company, it's only a temp. place to collect paycheck and obviously there is no career plan or training for employees."
Former Employee - Purchasing Manager says"I worked at Nikkiso Cryo full-time for more than a year Cons: purchasing procedure is not clear and inventory control must be optimized."
Current Employee - Engineer II says"I have been working at Nikkiso Cryo full-time Cons: Benefits are poor, management has unrealistic expectations for employee work load."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Nikkiso Cryo full-time Cons: I’d say there are about 4 different “teams” within, all competing with each other for power within the organization. Managers will ask professionals with years of experience about a subject only to minimize or outright ignore their input if it does not align with what they want to hear. Therefore, if you do not yourself join a team you will quickly find yourself left out in the cold with little support from your manager. My first manager had little management experience and was in over his head in regards to the responsibilities he had just inherited. I wasted a year of my professional career under someone who had no business managing a hot dog stand let alone a team of engineers, running our department into the ground while upper management did nothing. Eventually he was let go, but not before causing considerable damage. You may be tasked with integrating a process only to find roadblocks in your way from other departments with no support from your manager. Later you will be reprimanded for not making any progress on any front, despite you being the only one who has been making any effort at improvement. This environment winds up breeding a culture of nobody willing to take initiative for improving processes or tools, knowing they will make themselves a target to someone for threatening the “status quo” while their manager does nothing to support them. This is not a difficult industry. As there is only one other real competitor, you simply need to perform, but they fail to do so time and time again due to this toxic culture of infighting. Most other companies with this environment would have folded long ago, but the lack of competition keeps Nikkiso alive."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Nikkiso Cryo full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Poor, poor management from Tokyo all the way down to the local level. Lack of concrete future plan, very prone to sudden shifts in strategy and processes. Undefined roles means no accountability and lots of turf warfare. Work/life balance is a concept that means nothing here; Japanese culture of long work hours and 24/7 availability is the norm and expected. Very tight with money, they would rather have an employee do two jobs than hire another. Highly political, play the game or don't play at all. Pay is very middle of the road for the amount of availability required and stresses of working for an international company in an above average expensive city."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Nikkiso Cryo full-time Cons: Pay was not competitive. Pay didn't adjust to meet cost of living increases."
says"I have been working at Nikkiso Cryo Cons: Company stability, not well compensated"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Nikkiso Cryo full-time Cons: The company had a couple of years of extreme headcount growth which took a toll on employees (new people learning their jobs from new people). People are put in Management positions by who the CEO likes best and not necessarily who is best for the position. At times there may be a Manager overseeing several departments, this does not leave the Manager enough time to focus on issues within one department. There is constant restructuring in the organization, which makes it stressful to keep focused on the goal. Stress is common at Nikkiso Cryo, many employees work overtime and holidays."
Former Employee - Sales says"I worked at Nikkiso Cryo full-time Cons: Upper management did not understand the Canadian market"
Laborer (Former Employee) says"If you want to die young work here you’ll be breathing in smoke all day everybody is very nosy and the work is boring and slow also there is no room for advancing your career , only work here if your okay with being someone’s b*tch"
Design Engineer (Current Employee) says"Good employer. Learned many aspects of manufacturing and the practical applications of what was learned in school."
