I have been working at Mizuho Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Resources of global institution but yet medium size in US lends to greater job responsibilities, plentiful training opportunities, staff are very willing to cross-train, best benefits package thus far for me.

Cons

Cultural differences with expat staff may lend to challenges if one is not open to adapt; you can complain about it, or you can try to proactively help the expat staff adapt. Limited interaction between the various entities (Corporate Bank, Securities, Alternative Investments). Change could be enacted more quickly.

Advice to Management

Increase autonomy within NY local management.

    I have been working at Mizuho Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hours are OK. People are nice. It is a heaven for people with no actual experience (nobody can tell the difference...)

    Cons

    Low pay. Some expat managers do not know the basics of the products or the industry they are in.

    Advice to Management

    Do not send the mediocre "staffs" to manage the local workers. It is insulting. There is a training program for that.

    I worked at Mizuho Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Creative and talented team members, EBT Unit had great performance record and return on investment and upward mobility was still possible at that time. Now that the bank has changed hands a number of times, I suspect the culture there has changed as well, but hopefully it remains a cordial and effective workplace.

    Cons

    Rigid thinking, especially in H.R. - worked in Portland, OR main branch and upper management wasn't open to new ideas or making full use out of the employees they had at the time, and since employees are one of the major drivers of both cost and innovation, I would like to think that at some point they decided to use what they already had....their great people

    Advice to Management

    Good Ideas can come from anywhere
