ProsThe research and technolgy development is second to none. The environment is ideal for creative individuals who want to manage their career through initiative and hard work.

ConsWhile there are numerous postive attributes about working at Sharp, there remains a continual and growing fear that market and competiitive (Korean) conditions will test the firm in news ways that have never been dealt with before.
