    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work scheduling, excellent staff, and small company atmosphere. You can work on technology and see it in use by consumers quickly which is rewarding. People are diverse and support each other in good times and in tough times.

    Cons

    Sharp had a series of money losing years and didn't take action quickly enough leading to the takeover by Foxconn. They are pragmatic and want to restore Sharp brand and profitability but resulted in painful cuts to projects and staff. Those that remain however have good prospects with stronger funding and much larger worldwide operations. The ability of pivot to new products and markets is key.

    Advice to Management

    Take on good projects and staff fully. Rethink processes and incentives to encourage risk taking and rewards. Reduce meaningless work vestiges left over from the past to free up time for innovation.
