    ProsGreat staff, bosses are friendly, coworkers are easy going. Great place to work.

    Conshours could use a bit of a spruce up. Sometimes a bit confusing structure and late nights. Lots of personalities to handle in one space.

    Overall unsatisfactory experience in terms of communication, positive reinforcement, direction

    Digital Product Support Hotline (Current Employee) Fairfield, NJ

    ProsNew President has done great job in providing much needed leadership and direction which has resulted in actual profitability and good prospects. Started out flexible with accrual of up to 5 weeks PTO and ability to take half days at a time with the encouragement to take time off, even offering so much vacation reimbursement. Most employees at all levels are friendly and approachable. Good fairly clean work environment and excellent chef-run cafeteria. Original job as supervisor allowed time and offered opportunity to learn new things, keep up with updated resources and news.

    ConsDepending on department the Pros above can be very different or non existent. There is evidence of favortism and cliques among management so therefore some undesirable "policies" will not change. Not alot of communication or direction or positive reinforcement going on here. the first few years I was a supervisor my subordinates were given performance reviews by my manager without my knowledge or collaboration!! Raises are low- probably average about 1.5%.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the Under My Thumb micro management style in some departments and put you money where your mouth is when you say "employees are the most important" and "do the right thing as a human being". More positive reinforcement, more frequent communication between supervisors and managers providing constructive critcism, praise, direction and goals instead of blindsiding and hitting hard at review time. Take the exponents out of Multi-tasking please!! We are not robots or machines or computer processors that can handle so many simultaneous things successfully or consistently. Take this into consideration PLEASE.

    Not a bad place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsIn terms of people, the best place I have ever worked. At least within my amoeba, work hours is flexible (i.e. work from home). Not too much pressure from management (probably they know our salary is not competitive).

    ConsToo much focus on seniority. Too much “promote within” mentality (too many cookie cutting senior managers). If you get things done, management keeps unloading more work on you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot necessary advice to management but advice to people who are having interviews with Kyocera - Raises and compensations are not performance based – it is seniority base. That been said, work minimum amount to the point where you won’t get fired or laid off but plan to stick around for long time.
