A really friendly working environment but with old Japanese manners

Product Planner (Current Employee) Tokyo (Japan)

ProsWhat you do will affect the whole world and this feels really good.
The brand is really strong and give you some social status.
Feeling of doing something premium, not because it is cheap, but we will do it because it is good for the customer.
Friendly. People will smile during meetings and invite you to drink together.
Really interesting people around: Almost everybody has a hobby like playing guitar, scuba diving or Snowboarding. Easy to find your own group.

ConsSlow to adopt to new process.
Always in big teams, too many meetings with too many people.
Too many middle management jobs and too much offshore, what demotivate some engineers that come here to create and eventually they are just managing cheaper labour in other countries.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more freedom to the employees. Everything has to be approved for so many people that sometimes the employees don't feel they are responsible for the project.
Stop so much offshore and let your great and high skilled engineers develop the new software and technologies that will change the world!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
