    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US)

    Pros

    Sharp used to have a great group of loyal, talented people who worked together as a team and willingly worked long hours to get the job done right.

    Cons

    These days, you can practically hear the echoes walking down the hallways. Sharp is getting out of the tv business and has already gotten out of the appliance business.

    Advice to Management

    Sadly, it's too late to make the good decisions that should have been made five or ten years ago. Sharp is a mere shell of the company it once was.

    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work environment with recoginition for hard work. (Mostly) good people to work with, build relationships with. Some upward mobility, but there is definitely a ceiling.

    Cons

    Can't compete with subpar products. Too much emphasis on bottom line and not enough on rebuilding the brand. Positions are being filled based on politics.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.

    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good product, Good benefits, good hard working people, good food in the cafeteria

    Cons

    The only opinion that matters at Sharp Electronics Marketing of America is the opinion of the president. The upper management is too busy trying to please the president and the president is constantly changing his mind. This creates unnecessary work overload and employees eventually stop caring about their job.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to the president is to be consistent with the requirements or give the upper management more freedom and respect. Constantly changing the direction hurts Sharp's brand.
