    I have been working at Keyence full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get to see how things are created/manufactured. Sell innovative electronics that are a cut above the competition to Fortune 1000 customers. Freedom to set your own schedule

    Cons

    Although it's changing, Japanese headquarters still has too much influence on US operations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think if ways to invest more in employees after the first few years.
