    I worked at Toda full-time

    Pros

    The relatively small size and familiar atmosphere mean that it's not hard to move around, especially as a westerner. There is a lot of work to be done in terms of modernizing the organization and implementing technology.

    Cons

    The divisions between departments and branches mean that it's very hard to implement change. Like many Japanese organizations, the rank and file know the problems but don't feel able to point them out. The upper management is insulated and clueless. The company is not meeting the challenges it needs to if it intends to compete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire. Promote your best middle managers and empower them. Hire talent from other industries to help you reorganize and modernize. Make salaries merit based rather than age based.
