    I have been working at Sharp Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Flexible, comfortable environment. Good location. Salary is good, with the right manager, input is appreciated and talent is recognized.

    Cons

    Fear of job security due to global economy, constant layoffs and role changes. Staff works in fear of severance but management dismisses or is ignorant of the truth. Good old boys club at the top, directors in general are friends of the VP and are generally useless to their reports.

    Advice to Management

    Transparent can have two meanings, choose the correct one. Look hard at upper management, there are significant issues and multiple employees are seeking work elsewhere. Keep the talent you have by engaging them instead of driving them away. HR is useless other than basic functions an the ethics hotline is not trusted. There is nothing wrong with the truth, you need to listen.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sharp Corporation (Greensboro, NC (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone call and answered the recruiters questions via phone. She then set up with a face to face interview with the Sales Manager. Afterwards I meet with the sales manager's boss which asked mostly the same questions. The final decision to hire me was made by the Sales Manager.
