    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.
