    Pros

    - Amazing people
    - Good work environment
    - Sustainability goal of the company (No. 1 Green Electronics Company by 2018)

    I consider the company to be one of the originators of a "socially responsible company".

    Cons

    - Difficult to implement change
    - Very challenging business climate (strong yen, competition, etc.)
    - Still traditionally Japanese (dominated by men, overwork encouraged, etc.)
    - Risk averse

    Advice to Management

    - Encourage more diversity at all levels of the company (not just in US, but in Japan as well)
    - Embrace risk and be more open to innovation and creativity
    - Increase communication and transparency
    - Implement sustainable/ecological education and initiatives at all levels of the company, not just in manufacturing

    Pros

    Well known brand and health benefits are good in comparison to many other firms. Nice cafe and for middle to senior management a company Audi to drive.

    Cons

    The company is driven by HQ in Japan and expats that are rotated in from Japan for three to five year assignments. Many of the management that did the heavy lifting to build the brand either left for greener pastures where they could grow or were eliminated. If you want to spread your wings and work in an open-minded environment this is not the place. Lots of puppets.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the wisdom of the many and focus on knowledge that exists within your employees. It may be to late
