    Poorly Compensated Headless Chickens

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsIf you have a strong interest in the cellphone industry, then this could be a good place to learn before leaving for greener pastures. However, the industry as a whole is well on its way to becoming a commodity business with very little room for profit, putting great downward pressure on wages.

    ConsAbsolutely no brand awareness, poor organization, frequent reshuffling, few skilled managers, very low compensation, lots of uncompensated overtime, lots of overtime linked to low basic compensation, very low communications skills among all employees from top to bottom,

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time and resources developing talent, or spend the money to acquire talent from outside the organization. Build a foundation for success and stop wasting resources to re-invent the wheel for every single new product or service.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
