    Current Employee - Analyst in Tokyo (Japan)

    I have been working at Daiwa Securities Japan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They work professionally and behave right according to the law. Social welfare is good.

    Cons

    The working environment is not competitive enough and the culture is too conservative without trying new things. Even the salary is very low compared to other companies, they still can't make satisfactory profit. This is because they don't fire inefficient employees and pay higher for efficient ones.

    I worked at Daiwa Securities Japan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good to work as an undergraduate to gain domestic Japanese market experience
    - Fairly good work life balance (depends on the department though)
    - Very little risk of getting fired

    Cons

    - Too much bureaucracy
    - Not many foreigners working there in Tokyo office. People lack cultural understanding. So this is one of the hardest places to work for a foreigner.
    - Compensation is very low if you are hired in Tokyo.
    - No career growth. Basically I would advice to move on after 3 years.
    - Totally illogical and stupid internal rotation policy
    - Management has old fashioned mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please promote more younger people without discriminating based on age.
    - Hire foreigners as executives and board members if you are serious about being a global player.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
