    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SATO Labeling Solutions America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small Co atmosphere with some big Co perks. Great benefits and the people (peers) are genuine.

    Cons

    Some upper management are micro managers and they take the phrase in the job description "and other duties as assigned" to heart. Some present the Co as a family yet they are a typical cold and calculating enterprise. At one time the CEO would do a head check to see which salary employees had left before 5. Upper management is somewhat myopic. Sales compensation is adjusted every year so that you wind up making less for the same effort and quotas are given sometimes 6 months into the year. This makes it impossible to plan family budgeting.

    Advice to Management

    Sato will never be great in the US as long as they see themselves (and are treated) as a US distributor of a Japanese product. As long as upper management is receives a bonus on printer volume rather than gross dollars they will continue to flounder with little to no growth.


  2. "Rollercoaster ride through out the years."

    UPPER Management, very political, major favoritism, Upper management does not have to follow any set of rules
