    I have been working at Headway Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    working environment, benefit package and vacation hours. My department has this research-ish style where I'm allowed to try new ideas and fail. all very capable colleagues and easy going.

    Cons

    sometimes the meetings are too long and too frequent. But there is really not much cons I can think of

    Pros

    The Japanese culture is very evident in Headway's way of doing business. The favorable point of this type of culture is the strive for excellence and industry leadership!

    Cons

    The culture down points is that employees are reluctant to take risks due to the un-forgiveness of mistakes.
