    Former Employee - Senior Product Planning Manager in Camas, WA

    I worked at Sharp Corporation

    Pros

    Broaden experience into hardware. International business and travel experience. Good educational opportunities. Smart employees. Regular updates on group activities. Good experience with agile development for most part.

    Cons

    Flat organization. Limited promotion opportunities. Communications issues. Difficulty getting products understood and approved in Japan. Slow product life cycle for software. Customer contact very limited. Good ideas rarely make it past the presentation stage to Japan. Company as a provider of hardware, does not as a whole, understand software process and market. US subsidiary wishes to control Sharp Labs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to improve communications between US sales subsidiary, Sharp Labs and Japan HQ.

    I have been working at Sharp Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Flexible, comfortable environment. Good location. Salary is good, with the right manager, input is appreciated and talent is recognized.

    Cons

    Fear of job security due to global economy, constant layoffs and role changes. Staff works in fear of severance but management dismisses or is ignorant of the truth. Good old boys club at the top, directors in general are friends of the VP and are generally useless to their reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparent can have two meanings, choose the correct one. Look hard at upper management, there are significant issues and multiple employees are seeking work elsewhere. Keep the talent you have by engaging them instead of driving them away. HR is useless other than basic functions an the ethics hotline is not trusted. There is nothing wrong with the truth, you need to listen.
