    Autopilot OK

    Network Technician (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood benefits (401k, paid sick days, paid vacation days, paid personal days); 3-4 day work week

    ConsManagement from NY is at the mercy of management in Tokyo; role responsibility is unclear; workers take on more tasks with experience but are not compensated monetarily; staff are expected to manage other staff without sufficient monetary compensation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe NY branch should ask for more autonomy from the Tokyo branch when making fiscal, managerial, and corporate decisions.

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

    A typical big Japanese company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHas a lot of resources, capital, potential in the growing market
    Good financial standing. Good partner companies to work with.

    ConsLacks flexibility and speed in decision making and the decision is not always based on the logical/rational reason. The company culture doesn't always value academic approach. It's more like blue collar mind in IT industry. No or less rewarding return to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTop management has good strategy and leadership but the middle management only look up to their superior and tend not to pay attention to their subordinates.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Long grind job with no progression and very basic pay

    KDDI EU Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsFriendly local staff, Location of HQ is in a good location for lunch

    Consno amenities for employees, no great benefits, no actual pay rise, long hours expected, massive divide between management and local staff, don't expect to enhance your abilities, expect to stay a long time

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook into the benefit and current pay structure of the same skill sets set out in other rival companies for that country.

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