    I have been working at Sharp Corporation full-time

    Pros

    New owner starting to generate positive profit of the company.

    Cons

    In some areas, expense reduction is too much to maintain motivation of employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sharp Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Warm and friendly teammates. Great location, Competitive benefits and decent products.

    Cons

    Top Mgmt continued to misguide company while competitors ate their lunch. Finance team focus on reducing headcount at all costs while morale sunk like the titanic. Mgmt not in touch with reality.

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt runs on who they know, not on what they know, if they know anything at all. Get it right the second time. Three strikes you are out.

    I worked at Sharp Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay for the position, not far from my home, nice clean and well appointed building to work at, onsite security

    Cons

    Bad immediate management, located in a bad area of town, little to no training or knowledge given for the position - based on old position holder

    Advice to Management

    Ensure knowledge transfer from one employee to the next - instead of leaving someone hanging to try to determine need themselves, with a manager more concerned about bottom line and not employee ability..


  5. "Sharp"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Location is good and easily accessible and away from NYC traffic. Non executive personnel is extremely friendly and great to work with.

    Cons

    Disorganized and extremely un people friendly. Not concerned about work-life balance or needs. Top Management is ever changing with 'other than company goals as the main priority.

    Advice to Management

    Need to consider employees as an asset and provide a reasonable work and life balance. Provide benefits such as extra compensation or vacation, to offset negatives of required overtime during some time periods.

    I have been working at Sharp Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall I have had a good experience at Sharp. A lot of things are done inefficiently but I've had the opportunity to sell 1v1 with C-levels all over the D.C. area which is very goodfor an entry level job. Also some of our AV products are the best on the market. I'd recommend to a friend if they are trying to get into sales. A seasoned vet should try their hand in a different industry.

    Cons

    I'm mainly selling copiers. Also the company has been in a bit of turmoil as of recent but they just got bought out by Foxconn. Fingers crossed that Sharp gets a marketing budget. High turnover but that's the name of the game.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest problem is support. If I have a question about one of our own products sometimes I have more luck digging around on IT forums than reaching corporate.

    Sharp is a collaborative organization that provides the highest level of technology solutions and service support. Sharp provides a team culture that allows for growth and maximum potential via all members of our Sharp Family. It is inspiring to work for Sharp!

    Cons

    Compensation - Moderate. Product launches and company initiatives completed at a faster pace would be beneficial in a changing marketplace.
