    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great holiday and vacation schedule. Salaried employees receive unlimited sick time.

    Cons

    Very strict office hours. 9-5 but expected to stay way past 5 regularly as a salaried employee. Even when completeing Tasks from home. Micromanaged even though every deadline was met with plenty of time. Used to have great employee purchase plan for consumer products. Tvs. Camcorders Vacuums, microwaves vcr/DVD and air conditioners. Now you can get tea pots and air purifiers.

    Great Benefits 8 to 5 Monday thru Friday, they pay for A+ and Net + Certifications

    Cons

    If you are new to the industry it can be hard to get another tech onsite to help if needed, but they do train extensively before putting you on a route. You drive your personal car, but they tell you that up front, so the mileage can add up in a large territory
