    I worked at Hitachi Construction Machinery as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The most important when you go to a new working environment is your colleagues. All my colleagues at Hitachi Construction Machinery were very friendly and helpful, which is a great boost to me as a newbie entering the company. It also makes me feel at home and adapt very quickly to the working environment.

    The company's emphasis on work/life balance is also one of the factors that caught my attention. As the saying goes, "Work hard and play hard", the company also organises several cohesion activities that allow integration and bonding between the staff working in Hitachi Construction Machinery. There are also interest groups which you can join, depending on your hobbies.

    Cons

    As I was only working as a temp staff, I can't really say much about that.
