    I have been working at Panasonic

    Pros

    It began a new project, totally a new, like a startup environment

    Cons

    No stock, No bonus, no annual review after 1 year although they told you you had in the begnining

    In the beginning, they said that you were a GREAT, SMART person and we will give a big bonus for you in the final. Then you worked hard, one year later, you may lay off when you are not useful for them although you are a full-time employee.

    In the finnally The manager will say, we can easy hire a new employee to replace you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fair to employee
