    Pros

    As an intern, there's a lot to learn. Being here can teach a lot of how to act in a corporate culture. If you have the right kind of boss, they'll take the time to mentor and encourage.

    Cons

    No real work culture. It's not a lively and bustling place, totally unexpected from a tech company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make a more engaging and enjoyable work culture.

  2. Surprised a Japanese company is so organizationally challenged.

    Pros

    Great access to very cool products. Product discount program is very good. It's great to be associated with such a respected brand. Nice office environment. No set number of vacation days, you take them as you need/want with your manager's approval.

    Cons

    Everything is an emergency; several fire drills per day. Management does very little planning and as a result we are always in catch-up mode. HR is invisible... we barely have any sort of performance review process, and almost no succession planning. Don't expect to be trained here. You learn as you go. Some groups work very long and stressful hours. Other groups barely put in 40 hours/week.

    Advice to Management

    The marketing organization acts like a mafia and is mostly ineffective. It needs a management overhaul.
