Great people + Great Business Philosophy

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Secaucus, NJ

Pros- Amazing people
- Good work environment
- Sustainability goal of the company (No. 1 Green Electronics Company by 2018)

I consider the company to be one of the originators of a "socially responsible company".

Cons- Difficult to implement change
- Very challenging business climate (strong yen, competition, etc.)
- Still traditionally Japanese (dominated by men, overwork encouraged, etc.)
- Risk averse

Advice to Senior Management- Encourage more diversity at all levels of the company (not just in US, but in Japan as well)
- Embrace risk and be more open to innovation and creativity
- Increase communication and transparency
- Implement sustainable/ecological education and initiatives at all levels of the company, not just in manufacturing

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
