    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.

    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.

    I worked at JVC Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The JVC spirit still linger in the video marketplace

    Cons

    What was once a leader is been left far behind

    Advice to Management

    Management has not kept pace with the CE market. CEO is not a people person and doesn't know how to treat his top performers. No loyalty.

    I worked at JVC Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    Cons

    There are two levels of management(American and Japanese) and sometimes it gets in the way of achieving results. Everything else was great and I do not have anything else to add.

    I worked at JVC Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you can make it to full time employment, you'll see at or near 40 steady hours per week. There's some really amazing people there who strive to achieve. A large amount of voluntary overtime during the peak season.

    Cons

    Do to cost cutting measures new employees will never attain the same position and/or payscale as others who have been grandfathered in. There's some really terrible people there who have politicized the system to a point where unless you play their game you'll never be able to progress. A large amount of mandatory overtime during the peak season.Recently acquired by a competitor, not sure of what the future holds there.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within based on merit, not politics, which will give a fresh and renewed sense of purpose to the long term FTEs who mostly look at their position as a job and not a career.

    Pros

    Perfect work environment if you have a lot of personal errands to accomplish such as school work.

    Cons

    Communication is strictly top down. Upper management does not like to be questioned or want feedback. All the big decisions are made in Japan, and all those in between are merely middle management trying to hold on to their jobs. Basically, if you don't speak Japanese, you're out of the picture. The caustic environment could be resulting from the overall company's downward direction hence making every manager very insecure and jittery.

    Advice to Management

    It's a big world out there that is changing very quickly. Learn to adapt to changing trends instead of trying to make the world bend to your ways. Your preconceived notion on how the world, the market, distribution and consumers work is very 1980's.
