    Good company for entry position but no growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you're coming out of college, you'll get a lot of general business and project management experience working for JETRO. You'll also be working in various industries so it's a good networking opportunity.

    ConsThere is no advancement and pretty low salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow national staff to move up the ladder and offer more competitive salary.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Friendly staff and great networking opportunities, but no upward mobility if you are hired as a local.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Great networking opportunities
    - You get a chance to manage things you would never be allowed to as an assistant
    - Friendly staff

    Cons- No upward mobility
    - If you stay too long, you will have more experience than your supervisors, but will rarely (or never) get your supervisor's position

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Short term only

    Project Assistant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsLooks great on resume if you are interested in a career with Japanese companies/organizations

    ConsLike many public sector jobs, there is very little exciting work in the office. The salary is rather low and there is a "bamboo ceiling" for non-Japanese employees. Actually, to be more precise, there is a ceiling for any locally-hired staff. Only true JETRO staff (from Japan) are managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps a little less micromanaging of local staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Go here for a dead-end job.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe benefits package is fairly decent.

    ConsManagement is incompetent.
    There will be no chance of promotion working here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more American staff and place them in positions of importance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
