    Pros

    Above average benefits, some departments have good managers

    Cons

    Extremely political, inefficient back office processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the (non-management) employee ideas, and frustrations more in order to implement positive changes for both employee morale and customer service. Sales can bring in customer's all day long, but if you aren't following through the entire customer experience on the same page (from sales to corporate back office support), the customer will go elsewhere next time as well as present negative comments to other potential customers when discussing their experience with the company.

    Pros

    Customer-centric atitude, engineering driven. Have the werewithal to acquire and keep new customers and markets if the business case is there.

    Cons

    Until recently, US was a stopping point on the road to greatness in Tokyo. Also, US market is small fraction of global sales, resulting in lagging product when redesign is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course.

    Pros

    Good company culture. Decent employee benefits. Potential to grow within the company is higher than others I would think. I got promoted twice in the same department.

    Weak sales. They don't bring enough clients for us to work on. They don't have enough professional training systems established except HR training.
