    I have been working at Kyocera

    Pros

    In terms of people, the best place I have ever worked. At least within my amoeba, work hours is flexible (i.e. work from home). Not too much pressure from management (probably they know our salary is not competitive).

    Cons

    Too much focus on seniority. Too much “promote within” mentality (too many cookie cutting senior managers). If you get things done, management keeps unloading more work on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not necessary advice to management but advice to people who are having interviews with Kyocera - Raises and compensations are not performance based – it is seniority base. That been said, work minimum amount to the point where you won’t get fired or laid off but plan to stick around for long time.

    No opinion of CEO
