    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    1. Good benefits; 2. Great people to work with at the worker level, and great teamwork as well. Most people jump in to help when needed. This is especially true since the last big lay-off in Jan '09, when the remaining workers were asked to take on additional roles. 3. Work-life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    1. Pay okay or slightly below the industry. 2. Senior Management - Most of us don't have a clue what is in the minds of our Senior Executives, as we wonder about the future of our company. News seems to be parceled out in very small snippets, leaving you to read "the writing on the wall" and "between the lines" and about what's to come; 3. Communication - It seems employees are being told what we want to hear about forward-looking strategy. It all sounds and looks nice on paper. But the same bad decisions are STILL being made over and over, keeping the company unprofitable. 4. American employees appear to be expendable, while Japanese seem to enjoy guaranteed long-term employment. US employees have been fearing for their jobs, with lay-offs occuring every year like clockwork. US employee input seems to be disregarded and ignored, over-ridden by Kyocera-Yokohama directives.

    Advice to Management

    Pick both short-term and long-term goals and strategies that mesh together, and that you'll actually use and STICK to!! Enough of the lip service! Stop using the "make the numbers at all costs" strategy. That's not a strategy, it's a desperate tactic that's damaging to the company's partners and employee morale. And it STILL hasn't made the company profitable.


  2. Disconnect between executive management, mid management, and the workforce.
