    I worked at Teshima International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best things I would say were:
    1. Complete flexibility to work and manage sales activities.
    2. Great exposure of international markets.
    3. Participation in International Exhibitions: Compamed (Medica), Germany. Teshima participates in it every year and the management is always excited to get the team together during the expo.
    4. Great Colleagues: During my visit to see the manufacturing in Japan in 2013.
    5. Amazing Hospitality: Again during my visit to Japan. To my surprise the CEO had arranged a great vacation for me in Nikko! Loved the place!
    6. Management is very active in brainstorming the next way ahead.
    7. Team work is very well appreciated and CEO encourages that a lot.

    Overall a great platform to work, learn and enjoy.

    Proud to have worked and learned the Japanese pride in service, hospitality, process, precision and quality which is quite significant to learn and understand.

    Cons

    Company has a very specific market and not all fit in as potential clients but if one follows the right strategies, it will could be a game changer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I had a great time and would always seek an opportunity to come back.

    I have been working at Teshima International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    can lean small business development.
    Since Teshima at Boston is the CEO's strategy to expand Teshima's product market in the US.
    Since, CEO is remotely working, if the person has high motivation to learn, the person can learn a lot.
    Especially the product is made in Japan which is high quality and high tech, the person can learn about Japanese working culture if the person required.
    Experienced CEO will answer all your questions, if you asked.

    Cons

    Teshima is located very niche market.
    Beyond the business skill from the school sometimes might not work.
    Therefore, the person who are working at Teshima are highly motivated!

    Advice to Management

    Hire skilled and experienced marketing director sooner or later

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Teshima International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Traveling to medical device conventions in US and Europe.
    -Steady 9-5 weekdays only job.
    -Office is located in a great building with lots of perks, free food and fun activities and events.

    Cons

    -The CEO is completely oblivious as to how to manage a company, how to motivate employees, how to set up realistic goals, how to treat other human beings, etc. because she inherited the company from her father and has not worked for what she has.
    -As an employee you are always teared down, diminished, treated with disrespect, expected to meet impossible goals and under a very hostile management (CEO).
    -Pay is below average and pay cuts will be announced with less than one month of anticipation.
    -During business trips food costs and expenses are not covered by management.
    -CEO may like an idea you bring to the table initially and then after you spend months working on it and building it up, she may completely change her mind and scream at you.
    -Employees were promised a trip to see the manufacturing headquarters in Japan and understand more about the products. That never happened.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the current CEO so the company has a chance to be organized, positive and grow.

    Teshima International will thank for this comments.

    It is very difficult to understand about the difficulty of taking over a family business like Teshima, especially for the person who doesn't... More
