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

    Pros

    Worthless team with almost nothing positive to offset. A curious mixture of arrogance, lack of leadership and incompetence which represents the very worst of the American and Japanese corporate cultures. A toxic environment, with no respect for or recognition of your contributions.

    Cons

    Below par compensation for the hours and schedule demanded, unfriendly and cliquish coworkers (I am sorely tempted to use stronger descriptives), surprisingly low level of subject matter knowledge even at Director level, low morale and high turnover at junior levels.

    Only cheap Japanese debt keeps these people in business. Would give zero stars if at all possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Giving any would be a waste of time.

    Best day at this job will be the day you leave.

    Pros

    One of the best places to work on Wall Street because the people actually care about more than money. Excellent opportunities and people really try to help you advance.

    Cons

    The merger has made a lot of key people quit. Tokyo is trying to micro manage things and its hindering growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in more training opportunities.

  10.  

    Leader in international banking but extremely process oriented. Creativity is not encouraged and very risk averse.

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

    Pros

    The bank's reputation as international leader in financial services.
    The medical benefits are decent and the bonuses are good.
    The diversity of the workforce.

    Cons

    Status quo reigns supreme. Managers who "know his/her job and show up to work" appear to exemplify the best requirement to be a manager and rewarded accordingly.
    The abilities to coach, train and motivate don't matter if you have already "paid your dues".
    Time off is not that great, especially for non-exempt employees.
    The culture is to correct and improve by over-compensating for the errors and issues of the past.
    Work is often triple checked before anything gets out of the door.
    Doesn't create an environment of accountability as the notion is someone will check your work anyway.
