Pros

There are excellent, dedicated people at TPS. Most people are willing to go above and beyond to achieve results. Lots of freedom.

Cons

Poor communication from management. Often, the expected results and objectives are not articulated. There is not enough focus on long term, big picture issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better management skills are required. Better communication and more focus on the long term and not simply short term results.

    Pros

    Good international company positioned providing unique technology to solid industries that are here to stay. There are great opportunities for the company to capitalize on needs of these industries, and space for employees to take initiative to contribute to this effort. Benefits and compensation are market conform and opportunities for growth are available inside the company. Heavy international focus of both the company structure and the markets is challenging as well as exciting.

    Cons

    Change from small to medium to large company is difficult, and not every group is moving at the same speed to get to the level we need to be at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plans for the new campus are very exciting and should be advertised with current as well as future employees. The same goes for our international expansions and additions.

    I have been working at Topcon Positioning Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and opportunities abound. If you do it once it can become your job. Having experience with end use of products and systems you can write your own ticket.

    Cons

    Big little company challenges. Lots of "we've always done it this way." Duplicated efforts in many cases of office and engineering efforts only because of big/little company culture and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is structured the same way that it has been from 7 years ago, with tremendous growth in number of products and industries served. Grow and empower upper management to reflect the growth in the company overall.

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO
