Sharp Corporation Reviews
Pros – Sharp values it's employees and is very fair
Cons – Non-Japanese employees have somewhat limited career options.
Advice to Senior Management – Nothing
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Managers respect opinions of their staff, and give a lot of different oppurtunities to progress on to more technical areas.
Cons – Can be hard to get new ideas passed by Japanese management, withholding of information is a big problem but can be improved.
Advice to Senior Management – Share information more freely between the Japanese and other design centres. Take on new ideas and be more aggressive in exploiting opportunities.
Pros – The research and technolgy development is second to none. The environment is ideal for creative individuals who want to manage their career through initiative and hard work.
Cons – While there are numerous postive attributes about working at Sharp, there remains a continual and growing fear that market and competiitive (Korean) conditions will test the firm in news ways that have never been dealt with before.
Advice to Senior Management – I would suggets that management contine to stay focused on the technology that has brought the company so many years of good results. As for the new challenges ahead -- don't jeopardize the brand for short term gain.
