I think the Japanese products are much costlier than the Korean products and they started losing out in the market. I'm not sure if Panasonic will ever be able to come into good profits.

I think fresh grad will work for a few years then leave then the company as well. People get promoted just because they work in the company long enough.

It is the ever increasing presence of Korean giants LG and Samsung across the globe that is , in my opinion killing the Japanese companies. If Japanese Car makers and scooter makers can survive the onslaught then what is wrong with these , once upon a time giant, electronics companies? Japanese need to do some soul seraching on that.

Sad to see this. Japanese companies are going down. I worked in Japan for a Japanese MNC R&D for nearly 3 years and almost everyone in the company were above 35 years old. They rarely hired fresh engineers coz of lack of availability and had to hire foreigners to fill the gap.

It is quite disappointing to read this about Panasonic. They make most reliable and technically very sound product. I wish they change marketing model and reduce price to get back market share and deliver more wonderful products.

Japan has negative population growth. If that trend continues it could affect their pool of engineers at some point.

Teach and grow young talents: For many Japanese companies, this is time to change the work culture. They are not ready to teach and grow young talents. They have to improve the management skills and bring good result from team work. Japan is full of sales teams now, and very less technical development. Accept new ideas and bring them fast to market: In one Japanese company, still they debug with serial ports as full time job while the remaining world almost forgot them. Even if you write code for new CPU, you will be blackmailed in the name of review and the product will reach the market after a long delay.
