Ok to park but always look to move on

VP (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsNice office location in midtown Manhattan. Bonuses are good depending on the year the organization has had as a whole. Great health benefits.

ConsBonuses are performance driven; meaning if the company as a whole is not doing well, your bonus will reflect that. It is a Japanese company that is bureaucratic and filled with red tape. Even thought they have operations in the states, the japanese way of doing business overrides and they have difficulty undersanding business ops in the states and other countries. If you are not Japanese you will be the first laid off. Management is not looking out to move the organiztion forward they only care about their next assigment. Super stars leave after the first year or 2 and what is left just maintains operations. Extremely political to a point where nothing gets done in the right way.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop worrying about your next assignment and try and move the business forward.

    Be very careful what group you work for.

    Assistant Treasurer (Former Employee) New York, NY

    I worked at Sumitomo Mitsui

    Pros: Its a large multinational bank with great reach. Cons: Your experience working for the bank depends on which group you are working for. Some groups overwork you without any benefits beyond what others who… Advice to Senior Management: Overworking people only makes them leave. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
