    Pros

    Everyone here is encouraged to grow and take part of the business process including the decision-making process as part of the "local Tallent dress" managerial regeneration project.

    Cons

    Too comfortable working environment makes some employees start to live in the comfort zone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal technology adoption is necessary to speed up overall management process.

    I have been working at Epson

    Pros

    - Multinational organization
    - Diverse cultures and some great local staff
    - Great technology
    - Great opportunity to succeed, but keep shooting ourselves in the foot with poor execution...

    Cons

    - Technology-centric, not customer-centric
    - Revenue down by 40% in 5 years
    - Too conservative & hierarchical
    - Too locally optimized by region

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many staff in Japan. Need to restructure for the long term health of the organization. Focus on growth, not just on cost-cutting...

    I have been working at Epson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I can hardly find the good points about thiscompany. The food at the canteen is quite cheap.

    Cons

    Hard work not recognized by superiors.
    Already nearly at the management level. Still need to work like general workers together with PRCs. A lot of bias. Although staffs from different departments are holding the same position the job nature for some staffs in some departments is very relax. The pay is low. So many management staffs(talkers) compared to real workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to get fired. If you cannot do something just say "No" to your Japanese superior. Otherwise the people who really have to work will die.
