    Pros

    It's a global company. It was interesting to work with people from different countries.

    Cons

    It seems that they do not offer training to develope your skills that much. Japanese business culture dominates over American business culture.

    Advice to Management

    Management should provide more training with their employees to strengthen human resource instead of hiring new people consistently.

    Pros

    The company is stable. Like other Japanese MNCs, yearly compensation package and benefits are not fantastic but considered ok, better than lots of other SMEs.

    Cons

    Yearly salary Increment is rather low. People think doing OT = hardworking, but sometimes actually not. Efficiency not always appreciated

    Advice to Management

    Management should promote work efficiency, not working long hours.
