    I worked at Topcon Positioning Systems full-time

    Pros

    Some extremely dedicated and competent staff members. Great work/life balance - most staff never work on the weekends or evenings.

    Cons

    Most departments are extremely understaffed for a company of their size. Bad decisions by senior management have led to poor company performance in the current thriving gloabal economy. Management is an "Old Boys Network" with nearly no opportunity for upward mobility for female staff members and forced out others.

    Advice to Management

    Make an attempt to foster, train and mentor internal talent. Rely on merit-based promotions over simple tenure/"been-here-the-longest"selection. Encourage innovation and new ideas/processes rather than insisting things are done as they always have been.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Topcon Positioning Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance Good location Generally interesting work Some good teams that focus on choosing the right candidate for a lot more than skills

    Cons

    Using some old development technologies, eg Windows CE, C++ pre-11, VS 2008 No transparency at all from management. Some not-so-good teams hire based purely on talent, not cultural fit, then micro managed

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, let everyone know the overall plan and LISTEN to ideas that are not just your own - it is not a terrorist cell and everyone is not out to get you.
