I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time

Pros

Got paid decent, and I loved working with (some of) my customers, I also gained a great deal of knowledge and expertise both with and without my core area

Cons

The Santee branch was rife with drama. There were a number of HR violations that happened even prior to my arrival, some of which went unpunished. It was hard to respect some of the management based on a refusal to compensate fairly. Certain managers did not have the best interest of the company at heart; they only cared about their own personal agenda.

Advice to Management

Times are tough and the product is hard to push which is why sometimes you have to try a different approach. Don't be afraid to try something different despite you thinking you know the best way to proceed. Sometimes, a small risk can yield a big gain in the long run.

    Take deep, hard look at other companies and their strategies that have re emerged from broken molds, and glean some of their elements to incorporate in your "new" model...if you want to remain viable and relevant
