    I worked at HIC

    Pros

    Organized company, excellent staff, clean professional looking office. Top notch system in terms of office space/furniture. Admin assistants need more to do than just wait for the phone to ring and the mail to come in.

    Cons

    Admin assistants dont have enough work to do around the office. Morning duties are to change the lighting, start the coffee, change the night answering machine to the daytime hold machine. Then around noon you wait for the mailman. When he comes in you need about 30 minutes to go through the mail. After that you wait to leave at 5pm.

    I worked at HIC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good health benefits and 401k; relatively laid back working environment

    Cons

    Force Japanese work culture down your throat, management has no business in their respective group (they've just been in the company long enough), terribly boring work and completely unstructured. The accounting / financial reporting practices will ultimately land someone in jail.

    Fix your internal process, standardize something at this place...
