    Current Employee - Senior Accountant in Tokyo (Japan)

    I have been working at Mazars full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family environment
    Knowledgeable colleagues
    Increasingly challenging clients
    Fast growing company
    Really motivated and hard working staff
    Everyone is really approchable, always willing to give a hand and teach new things

    Cons

    Too many clients assigned so you get extremely busy.
    Salary lower compared to market standards
    No paid overtime
    Still very small so not known in Japan, this is bad if you want to jump ship later.
    No formalized training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more training
    Pay overtime please, it will compensate the low pay
    Should be tougher on clients regarding out of scope requests, it will considerably reduce costs.

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

    Pros

    Good level of compensation, perks, promotions.

    Cons

    a tough culture of stabbing in the back. Everything you say is turned against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR lack of judgment. (Evaluations should be objective and most of the time, senior associates evaluate juniors on a subjective basis leading to frustrations. The result is that HR would blame you and say that you are not consistent in your work as sometimes you have good evaluations and sometimes not)
