    I have been working at Socionext full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * Employees are very pleasant with one another (very little bad politics)
    * Strong sense of ONE TEAM, good support from USA and Japan Management
    * Pleasant holiday social events, great XMAS party - people know each other
    * Highly unique technologies get Socio through the door of major Tier-1 accounts (that usually buy from only the largest sized suppliers on their AVL)
    * Strong heritage from Fujitsu LSI and Panasonic LSI technologies for AV Tech
    * Good work and family balance - flexible, understanding, while responsible
    * Correct level of accountability to produce and achieve target results

    Cons

    * Some divisions could use additional product R&D investments to assure long term competitiveness
    * As in any Japan HQ firm, answers and action closures can take longer than the usual US firm or startup. But the result is less mistakes and smart decisions.
    * Some of the technologies that could apply in USA are successfully Japan centric, causing you to have to dig and uncover them within greater company
    * Changing name from famous well known "Fujitsu" & "Panasonic" over to Socionext caused some disconnect of "brand recognition" in US Market

    Advice to Management

    Keep on investing in brand recognition activities and supporting a highly strategic target account penetration strategy to maximize ROI and achieve the IPO.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Socionext (Sunnyvale, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    By phone and on-site interview process. Typical questions about my skills and experience, behavioral questions. Exciting Start-Up type of environment. Met with HR Manager and President of the company. Pleasant and professional experience with both.
