I worked at Sumitomo Mitsui

Pros

Small firm that will allow you to take on alot of responsibilities and tasks. Good chance to learn given the small structure

Cons

Japanese promotion structure encourages experience at the firm over genuine potential so can be slow but sure promotion and advanced in career

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage the junior staff to work towards potential success and promotion. More team building away days etc to get a good team culture.

    Inappropriate and Disrespectful Exit Immediately. Just leave now, you are no longer needed.

    Pros

    To be employed and get out. More Japanese than Americans. Know it or you can be an outsider. Be there at exactly on the dot, and if you come up a minute later, you are considered late mark on your performance review. Leave work exactly at 5pm on the clock, no exceptions or your supervisor will yell at you for not being a team player! Move you from convenient Midtown Manhattan office location to JC, NJ to inconvenient your commute and then, laid you off later. Nice and organized annual health fair, it's fair. Standard job salary, benefits, and performance bonuses if you suck up to your boss.

    Cons

    Shut my mouth when it’s time

    Open it… when it’s time

    If I want a promotion, do that job without the title and the pay check. They will have to give it to you at one point.

    Lower my expectations (in term of numbers or delays)

    Deliver the maximum (and get a huge achievement bonus!)

    Makes allies in every department, it’s always useful! Because your manager will get you with this in your performance review (poor communication is bad) if you don't socialize and make friends to other department people. She deemed it is important. You can't be yourself and pretend that you like them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read it and it's up to you. You get paid to do the upper management job salary. Appreciation is much appreciated.

    I have been working at Sumitomo Mitsui full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    9-5 job
    Very good health insurance (115$ per month for a complete coverage (health/dental/vision) for a family regardless of number of kids, no deductables)

    Cons

    Very japanese culture, your bosses never talks to you (will pass you by as if you don't exist), some of them barely speak English
    Department is not friendly
    Its dead quiet in the office
    Paintry is the worst I ve ever seen, plenty of green tea, but no milk. Coffee had to be placed at mail room as people were stealing it
    Absense of any training
    No coaching, mentoring
    No communication of expectations
    Very inefficient processes, outdated technology (both software and hardware)
    Absense of Communication from Top to Bottom
    Although hours are great (9-5), at 9:01 management goes around to check if you are at your place. Work from home is non-existent term, taking half day to take care of your personal affairs is judged. Sick days... well you have to be diying. If not, why arent you at your desk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you come to other countries, learn to adjust to that environment, leave your japanese culture in Japan
