    Sales Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA highly ethical company which is focused on the long term and genuinely cares about improving the industries and society they serve.

    -The people you work for and with are top notch. There is an atmosphere of both trust and competence.
    -Pay is competitive and benefits are outstanding.
    -Technology and Quality leaders, you can feel good about every product and service offered.
    -Company is well positioned to be a powerhouse in B2B.

    ConsFocus on quality and technical innovation can sometimes outstep the market's demand for it.

    The strong Yen has hurt pricing ability but the outlook for the yen is good and pricing should come down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs the #1 corporate goal build a product management function that is its own department. Have Engineering and R&D report to product management and follow a stricter product management lifecycle that is a slave to market demand. Have a product management function in every Major international market and make Japan Engineering and R&D responsible to those market requirements.
