    I worked at Topcon Positioning Systems full-time

    Pros

    The company is awesome, the people are awesome. There are people that have been there a long time, so that speaks highly of a company. The atmosphere arounds holidays was fun - lots of events, lots of employee appreciation.

    Cons

    When it comes to management, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. They claim to have an open-door policy, but there's also no confidentiality. One-on-One conversations behind closed doors with management somehow made it's way out into the open. Additionally, there was no potential for growth. All projects were slow-moving.

    Easy workplace environment and culture

    Cons

    There are so many silos and niche areas that nobody works together for a common goal.

    Pros

    I've been at Topcon for almost 6 months and it is a great place to work. Everyone works together and supports each other as a team, from Executive management down!
    I couldn't be happier and am fortunate to be part of the team.

    Cons

    I can't think of any at this time.

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    If you mesh well with the team, you will do fine. It has a very long history, some employees there since the beginning basically and you want to be careful of what you say and who you say it to. If you do it right, you'll be very well taken care of. Fun groups, lots of stories, must be able to take a joke.

    Cons

    If you don't mesh well, you won't last long. Either you'll be pushed out or want out. Also the company is currently unable to give a deserving SF Bay Area salary, so it can make living in that area difficult. I suggest bargaining strong with HR. If they want you, you have the upper hand.
