    I worked at Epson (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, would gladly work there again. Always busy working on new projects . Efficiency a must, caring environment from employees. Yearly bonuses and raises.

    Cons

    Department managers are great at delegating, they should get more involved with everyday tasks or at least know what they are supervising Indians know more than the chiefs.. Low turn over rate because its that good, no promotions because no one wants to leave at the top.

    Pros

    Small office & opportunity to grow professionally with limited management oversight, opportunity for those who are self driven to excel and thrive

    Cons

    No stock options, limited opportunity for growth due to flat organization, no onsite Cafe or catered food, closest restaurants are a drive away. Location on the boarder to the seedy & sketchy side of industrial San Jose.

    Provide continuous training for all employees

    I worked at Epson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation package, standard benefits.and pension plan
    Good location in SoCal
    Solid international company, HQ for Americas and strong brand worldwide
    Highly competitive environment perfect if you are an engineer with an MBA.
    It's not only a "printers" company, Epson's products portfolio is large. Business units are independent from each other.

    Cons

    Be ready to work hard and give 120%, some managers provide very little support. A lot of employees with over 15 year tenure can slow down the processes clashing with the Industry fast pace. Marketing team is really ran by finance and sales, not a very creative company.
    Hard to get promoted and it usually means keep your old job and add one more. Promotions are budgeted per department, so they are not necessirely given by merit.
     Your job can change unexpectedly, one day you are working for X department, next day you are in Y, without clear or advanced communication.
    Brand is bigger than the company, so you are always trying to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Profitability is driven by motivated employees that feel supported by management. Middle management overshadows your hard working employees. Don't get fooled by their reports. People are afraid to speak up, and being flagged for asking for support to be able to manage their workloads.

    I worked at Epson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a global company. It was interesting to work with people from different countries.

    Cons

    It seems that they do not offer training to develope your skills that much. Japanese business culture dominates over American business culture.

    Advice to Management

    Management should provide more training with their employees to strengthen human resource instead of hiring new people consistently.
