    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Great if you are incredibly money motivated! Seattle area has good growing business with opportunities to sell in to. 2. This location got a new GM who is a breath of fresh air! He want to see everyone grow and build a good culture. 3. No competing again your coworkers, they give you your own territory! 4. Their products are amazing and they are coming out with more!

    Cons

    1. The management is stuck in the 80’s. They just got a new GM so hopefully that will change. 2. They encourage unhealthy work habits, working 12 hour days normally, working weekends, and working when you’re sick. 3. Man dominated environment and it can get unfriendly.

    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time

    Pros

    Sheltered from Foxconn for now...

    Cons

    Sharp is essentially a subsidiary of Foxconn with all directions have to be vetted by Foxconn before any strategic can take place. That means there is no innovation. AT the CES 2019 you can clearly see the traffic flow between Sharp and Samsung. Sharp was next to Samsung and Samsung was so packed that people can't get in, but Sharp was like a wasteland compared to Samsung. Also there has been rumors of changing everything to profit centers, that means no more innovation. Everyone also seems to be scared of Foxconn. I will be trying to move to its competitor Samsung as there are better prospects. After all, the office is right next to Sharp. Sharp is sinking and for those who are still there...hope Foxconn don't treat American workers like the Chinese...
