    Pros

    Great company to work for and offered competitive income package as well as great benefits package. They promote from within and offered a great work environment.

    Cons

    In my position extensive travel was required and the expectations of business growth were very aggressive but achievable. I enjoyed my time at Kyocera and would recommend it to anyone seeking a good company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Great coworkers and service manager, made a great team. Training was not the best but as a group we made it work.

    Cons

    One overbearing, egomaniacal manager in the region was the bad apple of the bunch. Pay was decent, time off was good but not easy to use.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager for the region. Policy of just eliminating positions instead of allowing for transfers is devastating to families and totally unnecessary.

    Pros

    Some employees were good at their tasks and a pleasure to work with. Nice HQ property and grounds. Company car for sales and upper management.

    Cons

    Little or no feedback from management on job performance. Senior managers seperated from other emploees and often displayed a "better than you" attitude. Comp levels were definitively not up to the competition. Office equipment specifications and color performance were poor.

    Advice to Management

    Come down out of your spacious second floor offices and get to know your people and the problems they face at work.


  6. It's a job. Not a lot of compensation and alot of politics and cliques

    Pros

    PTo accrues 2 days per month and able to take half days.
    People friendly to work with
    good food in cafeteria

    Cons

    not alot of positive reinforcement
    too many people in positions they don't belong in just because they've been there a while
    suggestions not taken seriously
    pay is not good for what they demand of you- negotiate high at interview table

    Advice to Management

    Positive reinforcement and alot less criticism for the 1% worth of mistakes.
    Fight for your employees, not your parking spaces
    Its good to be king yes- but better to be good king


  7. Great if you want work-life balance, but can be dull

    Pros

    - Really good work-life balance. Company values family and hours are not horrendous
    - Job stability
    - Good benefits, lots of holidays

    Cons

    - Not really fast-paced or cutting-edge enough for rapid career growth
    - Management not necessarily interested in change
    - Can be hard to get promoted; growth opportunities seem to stall

    Advice to Management

    - Providea little bit more merit-based recognition, whether by creating opportunities for advancement, bonuses, vacation time, or more
    - Value the feedback of employees

    Pros

    work/life balance,
    we had a good team, but most of the people left.
    good opportunity to meet people from all over the world and learn some Japanise :))
    very friendly people
    benefits were good, although there were some problems with healthcare provider, but it always turned ok. (after being on the phone for an hour :))
    but it was a minor problem actually.

    Cons

    bad communications between the management, slow time reaction. Nobody knows what's where, who is doing what.

    Advice to Management

    be more open and proactive with your employees, let people organize some activities inside the company, listen to workers, be more open on what is going on in Japan. Let more people telecommute. organize your own HR.

    Pros

    good products and pretty nice and good people. Staff is well qualifed in some areas. Other areas need more work

    Cons

    some peple are not so nice and underqualifed. Why do I have to answers so many questions?

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your skill sets and staff. But nothing I am going to say here will help them understand what they are not doing right.


  10. A company that has most of the tools available, but still does not know how to effectively use the tools. Good products.

    Pros

    I found the company benefits were competitive. Personal Time Off (PTO) time accumulation is good. Support from the administrative personnel was always helpful (HR, Credit).

    Cons

    No consideration for the state of a territory when an employee is hired. Growth is not considered as acceptable performance, only selling above the quota assigned. Senior managemnet seemed to be "running scared" and their actions supported this theory.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the field and experience for yourselves what the new business environment looks like. It may help you create programs and incentives for achieving your numbers.
