    I have been working at Bank Of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good bunch of people to work with. Pay and benefits are good. It's a big place, so there are opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to get anything done. IT's a Japanese company, so everything is done on a "consensus" basis, so approvals take a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the approval process wherever you can.

    I have been working at Bank Of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ

    Pros

    At the very least Job Security,

    Cons

    A majority of upper managements are Expats from Japan. The company seems to care more about advancing the careers of the expats than the staff from the US. Management seems more concerned of fullfilling their required tenure and then be out. not much innovating, or productivity Very slow, micro managers, with not alot of opportunity to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Bank Of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company gives 20 vacation days + 2 personal days for Analysts and above.
    They like to promote people so it's possible to move up if you can stomach the culture and remember to call the senior managers as (Name)-San.

    Cons

    The systems are older than most of the employees there. Lots of things break so people just end up using Excel and Access to do their job.
    They are upgrading their systems and that causes a lot more problems due to lack of expertise in software development.
    Management is often in reactive mode due to regulatory issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to change and listen to new ideas that can help the company compete in the 21st century.
