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 ManagementAdvice

Engage middle managers and staff.

    Pros

    If you are content or a 2 or 3 time loser in the Brokerage Industry, Daiwa is for you. They do recycle garbage alot.

    Cons

    Ironically, it's the Senior American Managers that are the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is this: Stop being phony. Back in the old Wall Street days, you would have been laid out. Walk around more and see the garbage that you promoted, and maybe you will realize what most of us know. Some of the current Managers are pathetic. A company like Daiwa is good for people who can not make it at the real Firms.
