    Lots of travel. First row seat to the news. If you like international affairs and the USA, this is definitely an interesting opportunity for you.


    There is no opportunity for advancement and the divide between local staff and staff from Japan is constantly underlined from compensation differentials to how decisions are made. If you can't handle that, this is definitely not a good place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loyalty and morale would increase if there were better recourse for bad behavior from the senior members of the office. Also, an increase in the pay to minimize the vast difference between local and Japanese staff's quality of life would be appropriate.

    Neutral Outlook
