Pros

It's good for a person in their mid fifties or anyone else looking to find a place to disappear into the woodwork and earn a steady salary. But if you're a dynamic person looking to get things done, being rewarded more for your hard work etc. you're looking at the wrong place.

Cons

Every decision is controlled by Japan. No room for career advancement from engineering to mgmt / biz dev. Turf oreintated mentality among management. Promotions given more by number of years you served than because of what value you bring to the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a good career plan for your US employees like you do for your Japanese ones. The Japanese guys get rotated into different roles, the promising ones get sent to do an MBA etc. There is nothing like that for promising US employees.

    Pros

    It is a cushy job with significant job security compared to its competitors. Employees get to see free movies every month (even in today's economy); get fed with ice cream every month; go for an annual paid picnic; and so on. Wow! what a luxury.

    Cons

    Incompetent people. It is hard to find yourself surrounded by smart folks. Don't get me wrong. There are smart people but with a purpose. They are waiting to get their green cards or finish their business school etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come on wake up. You are not operating in a socialist country. This is america... you will lose your talented people if you don't provide them with TLC.
