I have been working at Sharp Corporation

Pros

The 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.

Cons

While 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.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would suggets that management contine to stay focused on the technology that has brought the company so many years of good results. As for the new challenges ahead -- don't jeopardize the brand for short term gain.

    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.
