    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Topcon Medical Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy going atmosphere, no pressure, good benefits, casual Fridays.
    Very nice people to work with in all departments.
    Very stable company, can retire here if you want to.

    Cons

    No career path for most, too much politics in upper management. Nobody listens to employees, poor communication between different departments. Decision-making process can be irrational sometimes and influenced by politics rather than logic.

    Advice to Management

    Please make communication with employees your top priority and it's not only about sales numbers but about people and motivation. Ask your employees what they would like to do, what ideas they have and how they can contribute to the company.

    I worked at Topcon Medical Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and a nice company to work for. Good middle management and interesting project, while it lasted. Company made excellent products but lacked the proper marketing strategy.

    Cons

    Top management did not stay more than 3 years on top and, had made many mistakes due to the disconnect with the US way of marketing. Unfortunately, it trickled down and affected employees, customers and vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Stay longer as President and/or CEO and adopt to the local community. Also, software and hardware are completely different, when it comes to marketing. Hopefully, the next round of products will be marketed in a more efficient way. Keep up the great quality of the products.

    "Good while it lasted"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Topcon Medical Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is minimal micro managing and a lot of creative freedom.

    The facilities are large and in a beautiful location. (Nearby gym membership is subsidized)

    There are bonus opportunities.

    Many good people working there.

    Cons

    Annual downsizing has been the trend in recent years and unfortunately seniority and work performance are not considered in the decision making process.

    Advice to Management

    Gain a deeper understanding of employee performance and growth.

    Invest more into the software sector and you will see greater gains.

    Pros

    Overall family culture in the company; relatively good compensation for the similar position; relatively good job security, and nice colleagues and supervisor; nice new building that accommodates the whole company in a very nice area;

    Cons

    long commuting, so so vacation package, somewhat lack of growth opportunities, less than satisfactory communication between management and employees, projects management can be better

    Advice to Management

    Improve the communication with employees; boost moral and make employee proud of their job and the company; more granularity for promotion/compensation raise based on fairness and performance
