    I have been working at Kyocera full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    New President has done great job in providing much needed leadership and direction which has resulted in actual profitability and good prospects. Started out flexible with accrual of up to 5 weeks PTO and ability to take half days at a time with the encouragement to take time off, even offering so much vacation reimbursement. Most employees at all levels are friendly and approachable. Good fairly clean work environment and excellent chef-run cafeteria. Original job as supervisor allowed time and offered opportunity to learn new things, keep up with updated resources and news.

    Cons

    Depending on department the Pros above can be very different or non existent. There is evidence of favortism and cliques among management so therefore some undesirable "policies" will not change. Not alot of communication or direction or positive reinforcement going on here. the first few years I was a supervisor my subordinates were given performance reviews by my manager without my knowledge or collaboration!! Raises are low- probably average about 1.5%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the Under My Thumb micro management style in some departments and put you money where your mouth is when you say "employees are the most important" and "do the right thing as a human being". More positive reinforcement, more frequent communication between supervisors and managers providing constructive critcism, praise, direction and goals instead of blindsiding and hitting hard at review time. Take the exponents out of Multi-tasking please!! We are not robots or machines or computer processors that can handle so many simultaneous things successfully or consistently. Take this into consideration PLEASE.
