Don't go there, it is a lie

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Cupertino, CA

I have been working at Panasonic

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

ConsNo 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 Senior ManagementFair to employee

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
