Lacking in Culture, but good pay and stability

Door Indeed uitgelichte review

De nuttigste review volgens Indeed
This company has good job security, average pay, & very good health insurance, but that's about it. Culture is very heavily influenced by HQ in Japan, so it doesn't have a lot of the things millennials are looking for like WFH, fun office activities, budget for work gatherings, etc.

Pluspunten

work life balance, health insurance, 401k match

Minpunten

work from home, culture

Cannot Even be Bothered to Meet in Person

You apply and you get an email back asking you to complete a personality profile (which have been proven nonsense for 30+ years). Then they want you to spend time dressing up and doing some nonsense of Virtual Interviews. They cannot even be bothered to have someone spend 30 minutes doing a phone screening. If they do not value you or your time as a candidate, how do you think they will value you as an employee? It is clear that the work culture is exploitative and will not value you or your time. If you are desperate enough, jump through their hoops, but they need you more than you need them.

Empresa para tener maduración profesional

Aprenderás a trabajar y a ser altamente eficiente, excelente prestaciones y sueldos recién egresamos. No tanto para hacer hacer una carrera ( sueldos no competitivos)

Gut & Schlecht

Sehr gutes Gehalt und stellenweise ein super Kollegium.Ansonsten altmodisches Unternehmen mit sehr viel Blockaden zu modernen Neuerungen. Konservativität wird hier groß geschrieben und alles wird penibel reguliert. Wer keine Leistung bringt, ist in dieser Firma nicht erwünscht. "Normal gutes" Arbeiten ist hier nicht möglich und nicht ausreichend.

Amazing people in high tech world

Great way to train your soft skills in highly respectful environment. Keyence is not known by regular people, but in industrial world this brand means a lot. This job gave me possibility to learn not only about Keyence, but it gave me awareness of development of industry and business in my own country.

No Work Life Balance | Always Over-time

CONS:- Above average salary for fresh grad or entry level but already includes compensation for any overtime that might be done- ALMOST ALWAYS OVERTIME. Going home at 7 or 8 PM is pretty normal. It's the typical corporate scenario where coming in a bit late is frowned upon yet going home late is seen as productive.- Not Flexible Time. You can't offset your overtime on the following working days.- Too much expectation for such a short span of time.- Attire is not comfortable for on site worksPros:- Service during site visits- Company provided devices

Decent

They provide great training and there is a ton of support to do your job well, the hours can be long but the work is not always super difficult so it doesn’t burn you out.

Decent company

Good out of college. Very good pay. Management can be a little over baring with all of the metrics as the other reviews say. If you work hard you will get recognized

Pluspunten

Pay

Metrics
Was deze review waardevol?

Keyence is a telemarketing company, that conducts on site demonstration and occasionally sell.

Cold call, book appointments. Be a demo donkey. Push product.Call some more, drive long hours, more demo donkey. Sell here and there. Call, email, drive, meet KPIs. KPIs change, change approach. Same result.When you join, hope for a good product and a good territory, or else your life will suck. OEM rich territories yield good sales.

Pluspunten

good money if your lucky. Sales boot camp.

Minpunten

It's not something you do for ever. Make your money, pay of your debts and find something easier.

Ambiente altamente competitivo y cultura de no gratificación

Es una buena escuela si te interesa comenzar una carrera de ventas. Al poco tiempo te das cuenta que el sistema y los indicadores que se utilizan para todo perjudican siempre a los empleados. Los gerentes y directores de división se enfocan únicamente en sus métricos y objetivos olvidando que trabajan con seres humanos. Solamente existe la cultura de los resultados y todo lo demás no importa. La alta gerencia es prepotente y existen varios casos sin seguimiento de acoso a las mujeres. Cultura tóxica.

Systematic company

Well build SFA system whereby it’s a good start environment for fresh graduate. Young and aggressive team. Direct sales techniques can be utilities in any sales environment.

Pluspunten

High basics and commission

Minpunten

No weekdays private life and health concern for those who need to lift heavy products for demo.

Decent Pay, Cultural Void

Keyence is a great starting point for someone just out of college- in fact they only seem to hire college grads. The company does however, provide excellent training, and decent pay for beginners. I would argue that the biggest opportunity for Keyence is regarding culture. The corporate HQ is unfortunately void of any individually, or personally- the only culture is to try as hard as possible to pass the monthly sales goal.

Pluspunten

Decent pay for new grads, decent vacation time

Minpunten

Lack of culture, tedious and unrewarding work

Not an engineering job

I worked in the Tech department, where they pretty much always hire engineering grads. NEWS FLASH - THIS IS NOT A JOB FOR ENGINEERS.The leader of my department made it clear that maximizing our bonus and minimizing work done was the goal, not really helping the sales people or customers.From day one, I was taught how to game the system so things looked good on reports but it made little difference to the business. I was told to always seem busy and refuse work so that they will hire more people and we will have even less to do. If I didn't play along, I was pressured by all the other members of the department. Department leadership was a hugely poisonous. I felt dirty doing this job the way I was told to.MAJOR CULTURE ISSUES - everyone at this company was miserable, HR doesn't care about anything other than recruiting the next group of people, who will leave.

TOP Arbeitgeber zum Einstieg in den technischen Vertrieb

Habe meine Entscheidung nicht bereut. War skeptisch weil die Firma unbekannt ist. Es wird viel erwartet aber auch viel zurückgegeben.

Terrible company to work for

Read the negative reviews, they are all true, this company will suck you dry.To achieve your goals, you'll need to work far more than normal hours (already long at 8am-5pm).You compete with your co-workers in a ranking for your bonus. Everyone can do achieve their goals yet someone always loses. You'll need to sell 20-30% more each year to earn the same income.You can't really use your vacation, since goals aren't adjusted. When you do you're expected to "make up the time and achieve your goals".The sales training is good, work for a year then get hired elsewhere for more money and fewer hours.

Pluspunten

Good Sales Training

Minpunten

Long hours, micromanagement, insane expectations

Worst company ever!!! Please STAY AWAY!!!!!

The training process will be consisting of basic and straightforward information. No regulations on the numbers or sales strategy on place. They won't teach you anything or let you go further even if you feel comfortable doing your work. After certain period of time the employee will be blamed in slow work efficiency and skills deficit. The initiative to take more responsibilities will be cut off and ignored. CSM (Customer Service Management) department is the worst which is specifically works by their own and disrespect each other. Do not expect any feedback or help at all from any Tech Sales or CSM. Keyence management do not care about the work process and mainly rely on bias opinion of their employees. If you don't along with any person in the company - you will be kicked off immediately. The management have their own "favorites" who were treated well but not anyone who's new or if you have different personal interests which are not along with others. The work environment is an EXTEREMELY CHAOTIC!!! You will receive tone of calls and requests from the customers. The break time won't be helpful and there will be moments when you won't be able even to go to the washroom. Sales companies tend to be like that but Keyence will kill you with the amount of work, "unique" company culture and chaotic atmosphere !!! Don't waist your time even applying to Keyence!!! Please keep in mind that most employees are still recovering from the stress and burnout.

Can be very interesting work, very stable job security. Success can be highly dependent on the territory.

Can be very interesting work, very stable job security. Success can be highly dependent on the territory. There are definitely a lot of metrics, but you are unlikely to get fired. Great products.
