I worked at Anritsu (More than 5 years)
Good fundamental technology and engineering talent.
Strong brand and position in traditional markets
Good mid-level managers sprinkled across the organization
New T&M President in Japan could usher in a new culture of innovation.
Work/Life balance is pretty good compared to many other Silicon Valley companies
Poor coupling of product development and key customer/markets needs.
Propensity to avoid risk and take follower position, resulting in perpetual market struggle.
US President hires less-than-competent cronies to lead the America's sales organization, resulting in insecure and rash decision making, lacking in strategic vision.
Advice to Management
Listen to key customers and customer facing sales people, and make responsiveness a priority.
Stop the ridiculous practice of introducing new products that don't meet key market needs.
Re-initiate confidential employee surveys. It'll be tough to listen to, but you've lost touch and most employees are afraid to voice the critical messages you need to hear.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Anritsu (Elk Grove, IL) in March 2017.
Three phone interviews - nothing out of the ordinary. Then was asked to fly to HQ for face to face - Was given 24 hours notice before flying to interview. When I arrived I was told where I could connect my laptop for a my presentation - I told them I was never informed that Im was to present a presentation. They then said - OK. We will just ask you questions - very unprofessional and arrogant group of 6 people just randomly hitting me with a barrage of questions - Felt like I was on trial - they purposely tried to trip me up! Awful - I knew quickly that I would not want to work at a company like Anritsu!
