Pros

Good benefits, outstanding 401(K), interesting design challenges

Cons

Working with Japanese culture is big shock for US workers. Japanese tend to be very rigid and rules driven.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advantest-Japan prides itself on not being on the forefront of the technology curve. Advantest cannot afford to continue with the extreme risk-adverse mindset, or the rapid market shifts will leave Advantest in the dirt.
