I worked at Sharp Corporation

Pros

Broaden experience into hardware. International business and travel experience. Good educational opportunities. Smart employees. Regular updates on group activities. Good experience with agile development for most part.

Cons

Flat organization. Limited promotion opportunities. Communications issues. Difficulty getting products understood and approved in Japan. Slow product life cycle for software. Customer contact very limited. Good ideas rarely make it past the presentation stage to Japan. Company as a provider of hardware, does not as a whole, understand software process and market. US subsidiary wishes to control Sharp Labs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out how to improve communications between US sales subsidiary, Sharp Labs and Japan HQ.

    I worked at Sharp Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    overall good company, strong information system products.

    Cons

    Like many Japanese companies, the consumer electronic side has taken many hits over the last few years, and is in the middle of a massive restructuring process across Europe on the consumer electronic products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Felt we had a few to many managers and not enough thinkers

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
  2. It's obvious what is going on. Why doesn't leadership look deeper?

    Paycheck, chair, desk, phone, free printing

    Organizational behavior, corruption, nepotism, old boys etc..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are serious ongoing conflicts of interest at the VP level. The company is structured to maximize personal financial benefit for a select few. Audit!

    Negative Outlook
