    I worked at JGC full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with: smart, energetic and driven. You will definitely be challenged

    Cons

    Typical large company feel, difficult to move around red tape and work directly with senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to communicate more with employees.

    I worked at JGC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work culture, truly international, good remuneration when you are overseas.

    Cons

    Limited growth, lot of travelling, lot of internal politics, very reluctant to adopt new technologies, no trainings, most of the upper management are not aware that an in-house IT team is not meant to make money but to support the smooth functioning of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Consider family benefits when you send employees overseas and consider IT team as a critical part of your organization.

    I have been working at JGC full-time

    Pros

    Don't have to worry about "Fire". Opportunity to talk with Japanese.

    Cons

    Salary is very low. Japanese and foreign people are separate. Too much overwork. Management is terrible.(They have "Chairman Emeritus " as a top of the company but he has no legal responsibility!!!! what is "compliance" to JGC?)

    Advice to Management

    Company should place importance on its employees more. Many employees say they want to change jobs soon.

    I worked at JGC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company building and location is the best reason for working JGC. Other than this I hardly found good reason because HR never support you even VISA process.

    Cons

    Language barrier. All meetings are in Japanese and they never cooperate with foreigners. They pretend to support foreign staff but no one wants to do it first.

    Advice to Management

    Company welfare is terrible.
