    Pros

    I loved that we were building a new product that could create change in the market.

    Don't focus on re-inventing the wheel. Use your knowledge, play in an established eco-system (i.e.: SalesForce)

    Former Employee - Engineering  in  San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Engineering in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Ricoh Innovations full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Nice people
    - Interesting work
    - Reasonable work-life balance

    Cons

    - Over-managed
    - Senior management still in box-selling mode
    - Too many meetings, not enough action

    The intent to do something new and different may have been there, but the planning and execution was not up to par. Wrong people assigned the wrong jobs. Lack of focus on primary goals was a major problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fewer meetings, faster decisions, focus on execution.

    Excellent place for inventive minds

    I have been working at Ricoh Innovations full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Visionary leaders, great work-life balance and decent compensation are the strengths of Ricoh Innovations. This is an excellent place for freshers to start. On-site visiting opportunities to Japan and USA are ample and performers are rewarded well. It is not located in city outskirts which makes commuting to & from city areas easier.

    Cons

    Freshers in research units do not have big teams. It is usually just the mentor and the assistant who are together. That is not a con but might not be an appealing factor to those who are used to working in large teams which might bore them out soon.
