I worked at Ricoh as a contractor (More than a year)
The Company’s culture developed an environment that’s always positive. Management always provided an open door policy for interdepartmental communications for process and product improvement.
There is no issue with the way the company was operated as there are always issues and constraints when working with changing goals, deadlines and industry competitiveness that’s the normal work environment everywhere.
Some really bright people that I am honored to know also work here.
Nearly totally incompetent people are treated not much differently from really good people. Incompetent people are often kept on for month after month and treated with kid gloves. At the same time some of the most competent people are slammed hard and grossly unfairly. Management has turned over almost completely. Gross mismanagement of all project phases is the norm from the top. Only some line managers and key employees do a good job to barely keep the place afloat.
