If you want to soar to great heights, then you need to be part of the best, which is what I love about Panasonic Automotive. Every day I am reminded that the technology we are working on for the Radio and Infortainment inside the car is on the cutting edge and is the top decision factor for consumers in their automotive purchasing decisions–from the advances in HMI to the premium audio systems.
Every employee in the Farmington Hills office has the chance to have a wonderful view of nature, while working on these advanced technologies as shown below. I am fortunate enough to have a corner cube and it helps me to feel grounded by being able to glance outside and see a couple hawks frequently perched on branches surveying the area. It is a reminder of the importance Panasonic places on its employees and being part of the community and environment around us.
Then there are the people. It is a joy to work with so many interesting, intelligent and creative people. When what you are creating is on the edge of technology, it requires a high level of engineering talent to bring to life the automotive OEM’s desires, which Panasonic Automotive Systems has a plethora of. Each year I get a chance to see the up and coming products from Panasonic at our Supplier showcase presented at the North American Automotive Expo and I am always amazed at the type of products that are shown by the company I work for. Although I have been with Panasonic only a short time, I could see myself growing and retiring with them.
One of my past bosses said it best, when he asked me “Why does everyone that goes to work for Panasonic never leave?” I feel it is due to the quality of the people, the company and its products. Here is to a great company and a great place to work!
