    I have been working at AEON full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    AEon has always been on the leading edge of technology in critical areas of power, housing and environmental science, and focuses its efforts in emerging markets around the globe. It provides the rare opportunity of being able to truly change the world for the better.

    Cons

    Developing infrastructure projects in emerging markets is always a challenge, particularly in the financial aspects. It requires creativity and resourcefulness, as well as patience and the ability to work with diverse elements in the areas of politics, culture and geography.

    I have been working at AEON

    Pros

    liked the group i worked with. worked hard but played hard. many knowledgable people in the group with differing opinions but group presented itself in a united front.

    Cons

    typical corporate environment with multilevel of management. as such it took time to get things approved and projects moving along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you should look within and promote within rather than drop placing management that is only working on processes and not doing the work nor know the reality of implementing the process.

    I have been working at AEON full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - good way to enter japan as a recent graduate
    - almost a week of necessary training before you teach
    - much better working conditions compared to Japanese staff and teachers

    Cons

    - lots of work and preparation for at least the first couple of months
    - may teach students who may be well below the class level
    - may not give enough training to classes which are not flagship ones
    - not enough time for non-teaching duties

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - more time for communication about all the programs and services outside our usual classes would be helpful

    I have been working at AEON full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You will get most of important benefits with this company in term of medical, working environment, epf increment from employer contribution. Condusive working place. Majority of the employees are Malays. We work as a team and everyone deserve a second chance here.

    Cons

    But salary quite so-so and comparing with other retailer seem moderate. Small office as Japanese co-owner usually very particular in costing. Yes, we can't run from office politics among co-workers. For operation, you have to work in 2 shifts and work on public holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To listen to the lower management staff as most of them have the utmost experience in current situation

    I worked at AEON

    Pros

    AEON helps foreigners out by helping the find a place to stay, unlike other smaller English language schools in Japan. You will be helped out by the Japanese as well as other foreign staff.

    Cons

    You must follow the corporate structure. This means that you have a somewhat limited range of what you can do with your lessons. Creativity is somewhat limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade the technology used in the local branches. I was surprised to see we were still using handwritten material and blackboards in 2010.
