    I have been working at Kyocera full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will not have much targets...as well the senior management is least bother how much you work until the month closing... Work life balance..

    Cons

    The salary is very very low compare to the quality of MBA people they want to hire. My previous job package was higher than this because of campus placement can't reject the offer. The work of daily suspecting is real pain as no one knows about the brand thanks to our so called marketing team..

    Advice to Management

    Please do spend on Marketing activities...

    Pros

    Friendly people. Decent salary. Job load is reasonable.

    The company is Japanese-owned. This is not a bad thing, but there are often cultural differences that make it difficult to work efficiently.

    Pros

    Depending on who you work with, some upper management tries to understand from top to bottom what goes on

    Cons

    Depending on who you work with, some upper management does NOT try to understand from top to bottom what goes on. Maximizing profits with the least amount of man power as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck

    I have been working at Kyocera full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    New President has done great job in providing much needed leadership and direction which has resulted in actual profitability and good prospects. Started out flexible with accrual of up to 5 weeks PTO and ability to take half days at a time with the encouragement to take time off, even offering so much vacation reimbursement. Most employees at all levels are friendly and approachable. Good fairly clean work environment and excellent chef-run cafeteria. Original job as supervisor allowed time and offered opportunity to learn new things, keep up with updated resources and news.

    Cons

    Depending on department the Pros above can be very different or non existent. There is evidence of favortism and cliques among management so therefore some undesirable "policies" will not change. Not alot of communication or direction or positive reinforcement going on here. the first few years I was a supervisor my subordinates were given performance reviews by my manager without my knowledge or collaboration!! Raises are low- probably average about 1.5%.

    Advice to Management

    Change the Under My Thumb micro management style in some departments and put you money where your mouth is when you say "employees are the most important" and "do the right thing as a human being". More positive reinforcement, more frequent communication between supervisors and managers providing constructive critcism, praise, direction and goals instead of blindsiding and hitting hard at review time. Take the exponents out of Multi-tasking please!! We are not robots or machines or computer processors that can handle so many simultaneous things successfully or consistently. Take this into consideration PLEASE.
