    I worked at Konica Minolta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was with Viztek who was bought by Konica Minolta. During the acquisition things were just awful. May be better now (?).

    Cons

    Low pay; closed door policies; lack of business and personal ethics in Mgmt. and Sales.

    Advice to Management

    Onsite F/T HR should be mandatory so employees have a place to go when they need to cry.

    I worked at Konica Minolta full-time

    Pros

    the cafeteria on a good day has great fries.

    Cons

    Low pay an no promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Lower management needs a complete over haul. There are too many work place instances that are just wrong. This place has little to no job promotion from within. The turnover is very high. And the people in charge are condescending and mean and threaten to fire staff often. Very low moral and lack of trust make this a very dismal atmosphere. This is the last place a person with long term career goals should ever work. Company goals and literature says the complete opposite of what actually happens.
