    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Sharp Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people and culture. A lot of freedom to explore novel ideas, no expectation for instant results.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to take workable ideas from the laboratory into production since links with factories in Japan can be weak. Salaries are OK for the industry but poor for the calibre of people.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the fantastic atmosphere. Make more effort to establish proper links with Japan and don't expect Junior employees to just 'be able' to do that with little assistance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sharp Laboratories (Oxford, England) in October 2015.

    Interview

    A half hour in person interview, and a tour of the facilities. Two on one in the interview, one was part of the management team the other was a researcher. Very friendly and welcoming. Another part involved playing around some laser apparatus.
