Pros

Most of the American staff is great to work with. Pay is great. Fairly good benefits. Great vacation allowance but sometimes difficult to take days and strict no carry over policy.

Cons

Senior management tends to be elitist, especially from Japan. They are very out of touch with what is going on at the staff level. No culture. No goals or mission. There is no sense of purpose or mission. Very little employee engagement.

Advice to Management

Engage middle managers and staff.
