    I worked at Hoya full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Typical Japanese culture... highly diversified in multiple business lines. Strong in optics technology. High independence and autonomy by each business unit in running their operation.

    Cons

    Deeply rooted in Japanese culture with many of the leadership positions held by Japanese employees, with strong connection to Japan corporate. Heavy emphasis on financial performance (over do), not much on longer term growth strategy.

    Pros

    The company is very receptive to new employees. The provide comprehensive training to new intakes, forming good working relationships from the very beginning.

    The organizational structure is not clearly defined. It came across as if there were a lot of politics involved, making it confusing to many, that a negative image of the management is formed.
