Pros

More active approach to capital usage. Happy to be a commercial bank and operate across many countries to support client needs

Cons

Very disfunctional. Japanese management are more focused on managing their next career steps than improving the business. Technology, policies, processes are all of especially poor standard vs non-Japanese banks and limit competitiveness

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for more opportunities to westernise the bank from top down, thereby having a more client/employee friendly approach. Senior mgmt should be rewarding Japanese middle mgmt for taking sensible risk, restructuring their businesses, etc

Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

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

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

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