    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 Management

    Streamline the approval process wherever you can.

    Pros

    If you want to be stripped of all dignity, please apply to this circus. Otherwise, stay far away if you are in IT.

    Cons

    No privacy or quiet in the work space. The Japanese run the place and everyone is afraid of them. The workspace is open (as in a fish bowl), and the amount of foreign workers is extensive. I was treated like a piece of dirt, and never given the opportunity to make an impact. Had a ruthless control freak for a boss, and she stepped on anyone's toes she could get away with. For that, they promoted her.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck in trying to attract local talent, but you don't care since there are way too many south Asian resources available in North Jersey who will put up with your inhumane cattle pen workplace where everyone uses a speaker phone to hold a conversation.

    Pros

    None I can think of.

    Cons

    I have worked with lots of managers and coworkers who lack professionalism, intelligence, and required skill sets. They are not enthusiastic about working or learning either. It is good enough if they survive the day and get the pay check. Things move so slowly and occasionally in a completely wrong direction but nobody dares to point it out. Both expats and local staff listen to their managers (or they pretend to be loyal) but show no interest in their staff's suggestions, performance, or career development.

    Advice to Management

    Act like you are a leader. Focus on your subordinates' strengths and maximize their abilities, instead of suppressing them in fear of being overtaken your position. Change the culture to appreciate opinions and performance.

    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 Management

    Contribute to advancing the experience and growth of your employees.
