    Pros

    Very good employee discounts on Pioneer products.
    Decent benefits for the size of the company.
    Flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    I worked for the division of Pioneer North America called Pioneer Business Solutions, which is their shared services company. Working for PBS comes with a lot of downsides because you act as a vendor to the other Pioneer companies and are graded by people in those companies (they literally fill out a survey about you and your department).

    My biggest complaint about Pioneer is about my direct supervisor who treated me with absolute disrespect every day. While this shouldn't reflect on Pioneer as a whole, I did bring this to the attention of more senior managers without satisfactory resolution.

    My second biggest complaint is about how Pioneer (specifically PBS) measured job success. There were monthly goals and reviews. Many of the goals were very hard to reach, yet your bonus was based on meeting these goals. Some of the goals were unfair because they were so unrealistic (i.e. rarely or never acheived by anyone prior). They were also non-negotiable.

    Lastly, morale was awful. Most of our departmental meetings were gripe-fests. People seemed generally unhappy about how management was doing things.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with Sr. Management was limited. The VP of my department was a very smart and nice person to work with. I didn't have much contact with anyone above him. I didn't like many of their decisions regarding employee reviews.

    Pros

    Friendly work culture, Freedom of expression, Management is easily accessible.

    At executive level, not a good pay master. Monetary growth is very slow.


  4. "Work at PIoneer at Shanghai"

    Pros

    The location is really good. It's in center of Shanghai.

    Cons

    It's an outsourcing company, which means employee doesn't have the same benefit. And you have a lot of work to do, which means you frequently need over times with no pay.
