    Pros

    Benefits are okay. Company is fairly stable as the Japanese are usually reluctant to let someone go, even if the person is completely incompetent. If you are a manager or higher, your salary is very healthy.

    Cons

    Your salary depends on your title, and not on your competency, your work ethic, or how long you have been there. The low walls separating the cubicles and the open-floor plan in the new headquarters at Melville is totally counter productive to thinking and working efficiently. The complete lack of privacy forces you to hear all the phone calls and conversations that take place around you all day long, and to see what everyone else is doing, too. The new cubicles are extremely cramped, and offer very little room to store your work or belongings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Americans like lots of space and cherish their privacy. Redesign the cubicles to give back space and privacy so the workers can do their jobs properly.
