    I worked at JVC Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology
    Strong customer relationships
    Global reach
    Respected in the media community

    Cons

    What was once a conglomerate with hundreds of employees has dwindled down to just a few dozen with long tenure.
    JVC has a historic footprint as providing "firsts" in a long line of technology but is no longer a powerhouse in the consumer market.
    Very clicky group full of VPs with old-school attitudes.
    Lack of certification-level training makes productive sales challenging.
    Recently rolled out third party branded technologies as their own solutions with unrealistic to-market expectations.
    Pay does not meet market standards, weak bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize your business practices. Broaden your technology arenas. Strengthen your training.

    I worked at JVC Company (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In its prime a fantastic place to work. Excellent people, good management. Product was the best in the industry and they were a true leader. As the industry changed JVC didn't.

    Cons

    It's past its prime no longer a factor in any one Division of Consumer Electronics. Most if not all of the valuable people are gone. Complete failure to stay up with the times.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with my co-workers. Leadership is great and is devoted to clients and employees. This company has integrity and is always looking ahead to where they will be in the future.
