    Pros

    The JVC spirit still linger in the video marketplace

    Cons

    What was once a leader is been left far behind

    Advice to Management

    Management has not kept pace with the CE market. CEO is not a people person and doesn't know how to treat his top performers. No loyalty.

    Pros

    Mostly great people to work with. Benefits and time off. Average compensation. Used to make great and solid product. Still does on some categories.

    Cons

    Failed to remain creative and competitive. Some measures saved pennies but kept spending dollars. Didn't value people as they should have too. Shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your best employees - too late now. Know what your employees do. Big divide between American and Japanese management.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with my co-workers. Leadership is great and is devoted to clients and employees. This company has integrity and is always looking ahead to where they will be in the future.

    Cons

    There are two levels of management(American and Japanese) and sometimes it gets in the way of achieving results. Everything else was great and I do not have anything else to add.

    Pros

    If you can make it to full time employment, you'll see at or near 40 steady hours per week. There's some really amazing people there who strive to achieve. A large amount of voluntary overtime during the peak season.

    Cons

    Do to cost cutting measures new employees will never attain the same position and/or payscale as others who have been grandfathered in. There's some really terrible people there who have politicized the system to a point where unless you play their game you'll never be able to progress. A large amount of mandatory overtime during the peak season.Recently acquired by a competitor, not sure of what the future holds there.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within based on merit, not politics, which will give a fresh and renewed sense of purpose to the long term FTEs who mostly look at their position as a job and not a career.

    I had the best manager and the best working experience there. Everyone was like a family to me.

    Cons

    JVC is losing market share quickly and they are not a player in the consumer electronics anymore. Outlook looks grim.
