      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      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. Good employees are still leaving the company.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Sharp Corporation full-time for 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.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Sharp Corporation full-time for 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..

    • "Sharp"

        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at Sharp Corporation

        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.
