Not the "typical" Japanese company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsAwesome benefits package that probably doesn't exist outside of most Japanese companies (i.e. no contribution for major medical for employee only, very little add'l for spouse & kids, cheap vision & dental insurance); stability (you _really_ have to mess up here to be fired); very much a hybrid company w/ corporate input from both Japanese & American sides.

ConsLow pay compared to industry; low morale; depending on the department, Japanese management tends to micromanage the unnecessary & totally drop the ball where it's needed; general attitude of "Product A works Japan, so it'll work exactly the same way in North America too, right?"; seniority determined 99% by length of service and not ability

Advice to Senior ManagementBenefits are great, but you can't maintain quality people paying as little as you do. In many cases, the benefits are the _only_ thing keeping many of us around.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
