    I have been working at Sharp Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There’s no place to hide, shirkers will get sussed and hard workers get rewarded (and recognised) for their hard work.

    Cons

    None that I can think off, I’ll have to get back to you on this one.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the bottom line is the only line which can actually restrict the company,s growth potential. Sometime management need to “invest” financially in order to get reap productivity and other benefits.
