    Pros

    There is nothing like a good RFP. You work closely with your clients and form long term relationships.

    Cons

    There is nothing worse than losing an account. Also, for the most part, customer service is out of your control. Better make sure you have a great team.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure customer service is ALWAYS

     excellent in every department.

    Pros

    Kyocera document solutions NJ
    Great Stability for long term employment. Average benefits 5% match 401k

    Cons

    penny wise and dollar foolish
    Difficult advancement and little opportunity for growth, Slow decision Making, Japanese Management difficult to deal with, Too many meeting and power points, nothing
    Ever gets done, or changes just some new power points
    Raises very poor 2017 was a very good sales year and stock market highs everyone received 1.5% raise.
    They make you read in groups the “Blue Book” of Kyocera philosophy but management never follow it.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time on surveying directly to your employee, look for impute from your employees
    Send out quarterly survey and have HR actually do something to improve the very poor work
    culture

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

    Pros

    Great place if your Asian.

    Cons

    Everything about this place. Stay away unless your Asian. I have never worked for a place with so much complacency. If you like being treated badly for trying to make things better, this is the place for you. To many Asian immigrants that are not friendly to anyone not from their country. In my world, that is called racism and the HR Dept. allows this to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Don't preach respect and then disrespect your hard workers. Worst management I have experienced in my life.

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

    Pros

    the only pro was it was close to my house, and less commute.

    Cons

    it has strict rules on time to come into to work, when to leave, when to take lunch, there was no flexibility. you would think the job and quality of work was more important than being disciplined like in school. people are ok.
