    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to be recruited on to bigger and better opportunities.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay for the work. Little to no development. High turnover. Old school sales techniques in a high tech sales environment. SBS is a very young company and has a long way to go, but there is no point in sticking around to find out how long.

    Advice to Management

    Hire innovative people who will breath new life in this outdated company. Spend money to make money...emplopyees, marketing, customers.

    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good healthcare benefits. Fairly good work/life balance. Friendly atmosphere - nice co-workers, Worked there for 10 years and made some good life long friends.

    Cons

    Old school management style - top management does not tap employees for their opinions, and when they offer them, it's ignored. Company needs new management team to revive itself from the brink of bankruptcy. No room for advancement, constant layoff, bad morale.

    Advice to Management

    Find some good talent with ideas to help build the business back. Need to diversify product categories.

    I have been working at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time

    Pros

    I worked in Finance and the technology and tools were top notch

    Cons

    Management is very old school culture in a condescending way. Favoritism plays a big part in your career path and the Finance area was way overstaffed.
