    Pros

    freedom to explore design. great work life balance. ethnic diversity. small office, will take on more responsibilities.

    Cons

    Japan design team has vice grip on final designs that are produced. Japan design group do not understand US culture and lifestyle so many of the designs that come out into the US are not appropriate for the market. San Diego office is not empowered to make any decisions on products for US market. Japan feels they know better , because of this.. mobile phone group will eventually dismantle after one product boff up after another. Echo and Zio prime examples.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people in San Diego office to make the right decisions for the US market. They know their market better than Japanese planning counterparts. Japan needs to trust global offices and let them drive. Right now, there is no trust.. look at the flops of echo and zio as prime example of japan introducing the wrong products into the us market. Despite San Diego teams warnings.. they did not listen.


  2. "It's a job. Not a lot of compensation and alot of politics and cliques"
