    Pros

    Less Zangyo than other IT companies. Not so bad salary. you can get much more holidays. better place to work longer.

    Cons

    They do as Pana directs. Not much freedom. They are transforming themselves but no much determination to the future as a company.

    Advice to Management

    Select your business and cut the other, or individualize the business units. Be independent from Pana, or get together with other IT companies in our group.

    Pros

    Sanyo has a very friendly and close-knit working environment. Employees are always willing to help out one another and have a strong bond when working together. At work, you are not confined to working the same projects and tasks but can take on other tasks to expand your set skills outside of your scope of expertise. Taking time off is usually not a problem.

    Cons

    Nearly all management positions from Director and above are filled with lifetime Sanyo employees from Japan. There is usually a 4-5 year rotation between these upper managers. Hence, these managers are only thinking of how to make themselves look good on paper so they can receive a handsome promotion upon their return back to their original division. Nearlly all corporate profits are sent back to headquarters and reinvestment into the local company is non-existent, with the exception of the batteries and solar panel division. Most salaries within Sanyo rank in the bottom 20th percentile compared to other local salaries due to this phenomenon. A slow decline has been evident from the early 90s until now, as more than half the employees are over the age of 50 while the other half are below age 30. Only time will tell how many former Sanyo divisions will remain after the buyout from Panasonic.

    Advice to Management

    Must be willing to incorporate change in culture as well as in leadership. However, the Panasonic buyout will force that decision.
