    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.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Topcon Positioning Systems

    Pros

    Very strong product and technology portfolio.

    Cons

    Needs to execute better; failures in execution occurring due to leadership underestimating/ignoring complexity of strategic decisions and not staffing/managing accordingly. Benefits and severance poor compared to Bay Area high-tech or financial services, for example. CEO needs to start being more visible again, not just communicating through the newsletter or Exec Committee members.

    Advice to Management

    Topcon now competes for talent among Bay Area middle market companies and needs competitive compensation and benefits. Topcon's ability to execute with excellence needs to become as good as its products and technologies.
