I have been working at Kao full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Great co-workers, very competitive benefit package (including pension and vacation time), overall job security as it is a lean organization, great products.
Also, it's a global organization that is large and has presence, but it's not too big- meaning that you can truly have a positive impact on the organization, you don't get lost in the shuffle.Cons
