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

    Pros

    There are a few good people who bust their butts to do a great job at SBS-Alpharetta. Their core offerings are strong products for the most part.

    Cons

    The comp plan is designed around hitting multiple buckets that SBS is trying to play in. However, they only do one or two of them well enough to make a sale and do the project right. Additionally, the Subject Matter Experts are a mix of unmotivated, overburdened, in some cases incapable of doing the job they are being overpaid to do. Which makes it difficult to make a living there as a sales person reliant on these folks...

    Advice to Management

    Get some strong sales leadership. Hire engaged subject matter experts who know their job and are anxious to do it. Provide tools to the sales team to do their job like a CRM, a realistic expense account, and a realistic comp plan.

    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great holiday and vacation schedule. Salaried employees receive unlimited sick time.

    Cons

    Very strict office hours. 9-5 but expected to stay way past 5 regularly as a salaried employee. Even when completeing Tasks from home. Micromanaged even though every deadline was met with plenty of time. Used to have great employee purchase plan for consumer products. Tvs. Camcorders Vacuums, microwaves vcr/DVD and air conditioners. Now you can get tea pots and air purifiers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hearing company great place to work for. People let go or leave and job responsibilities are dropped on those left with no additional compensation.

    I worked at Sharp Electronics (US) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Fantastic Company. Very Diverse. Lots of locations to transfer to. Amazing CEOs and corporate support. Very willing to build your professional education with continuous management education.

    Cons

    Micro Managing Supervisors in the Charlotte Location create a hostile work environment for their own self preservation to stay comfortable while they ride out retirement. Know your department manager's style before you start.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate management styles of all senior employees every 5 years. If employees have turned enough complaints on a manager, please look into it. Senior management stays comfortable for retirement while crushing young employees for their own self preservation.
