      Pros

      Decent benefits package (used to be good, now going down for years) International company with strong financial support from Japan HQ (few back end layoff during Great Recession)

      Cons

      No employee appreciation. No career growth. Even in the best year, pathetic $50-100 GC and that's it.

      Pros

      Pay is decent, ok benefits.

      Cons

      Micromanagement! No employee appreciation. Upper management rules by fear not by true leadership. Building is always cold literally and metaphorically. There is a real sense of dread and sadness throughout the office. No one seems happy to be there.
