It's not for everyone

Senior Product Planning Manager (Former Employee)
Camas, WA

I worked at Sharp Corporation

ProsBroaden experience into hardware. International business and travel experience. Good educational opportunities. Smart employees. Regular updates on group activities. Good experience with agile development for most part.

ConsFlat organization. Limited promotion opportunities. Communications issues. Difficulty getting products understood and approved in Japan. Slow product life cycle for software. Customer contact very limited. Good ideas rarely make it past the presentation stage to Japan. Company as a provider of hardware, does not as a whole, understand software process and market. US subsidiary wishes to control Sharp Labs.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to improve communications between US sales subsidiary, Sharp Labs and Japan HQ.

Challenging and interesting work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Sharp Corporation

ProsManagers respect opinions of their staff, and give a lot of different oppurtunities to progress on to more technical areas.

ConsCan be hard to get new ideas passed by Japanese management, withholding of information is a big problem but can be improved.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare information more freely between the Japanese and other design centres. Take on new ideas and be more aggressive in exploiting opportunities.

Times have been good, but where to next?

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sharp Corporation

ProsThe research and technolgy development is second to none. The environment is ideal for creative individuals who want to manage their career through initiative and hard work.

ConsWhile there are numerous postive attributes about working at Sharp, there remains a continual and growing fear that market and competiitive (Korean) conditions will test the firm in news ways that have never been dealt with before.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggets that management contine to stay focused on the technology that has brought the company so many years of good results. As for the new challenges ahead -- don't jeopardize the brand for short term gain.

Very Rewarding

Area Manager Field Sales (Former Employee)
Calamba, Laguna (Philippines)

I worked at Sharp Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompany was generous to send employees for various trainings and seminar both local and abroad at their expense plus allowances which will also be the basis in promotion in the future. Career growth is attainable.

ConsDuring economic crisis, company was forced to minimize workforce and offer voluntary resignation. To come up with their target number of employees, they make a promotion to encourage employees to avail of the early retirement.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your files. Some resigned employees are still worth rehiring to contribute to your goals

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
