    I worked at Mitsubishi International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People were very easygoing and friendly. As long you knew you work, there were no hassles from anyone and people were willing to help you if you needed assistance.

    Cons

    If you hit the ceiling salary wise, you will need to reconsider your wanting to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to reward your "American" personnel with pay equal to what is paid by similar companies here.

    I worked at Mitsubishi International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is Mitsubishi. It has all the power to erase negative press.
    It has a team dedicated for it. Too big to fail.

    Cons

    All the other negative comments are true. On top of these negative comments, the company was just sued for unpaid overtime money since 2008. I believe the lawsuit was settled. I received two large back-paid checks recently. Thank you for the social media now I can share the real truth about this evil company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please practice your mission statement responsibly: "corporate responsibility to society, integrity and fairness, and Global Understanding Through Business" - your rating on glassdoor is below 2 stars. I think you've got the message.

    I worked at Mitsubishi International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    For recruiting these guys will say whatever they need to say and then flip the script once you're in the door. A great place to work as long as you are (a) Japanese, (b) willing to travel anywhere anytime, and (c) don't have a family or if you do then you don't mind seeing them next to never.

    Cons

    Unproductive, inefficient, archaic, non-result-oriented work practices abound. Allows manipulation of corporate strategy by the subsidiaries. Non-Japanese have no chance for advancement. The employee performance review process is a joke (here is where the secret file re your demerits is disclosed; anything extraordinary you've achieved is coolly reduced to "well, you were expected to do that as part of your job").

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guys, this isn't 1970's Japan - it's the 21st century globalized marketplace. You are losing key talent and falling further behind your competitors. Stop dreaming of the never-to-return glory days of the past and embrace the reality of your situation.

    I have been working at Mitsubishi International full-time

    Pros

    Stable company which allows for job security. Located in midtown Manhattan so easy to get to.

    Cons

    Company is stuck in the past. At least 25 years behind on many things, including employee management and IT to name two.

    Little to no career opportunities. With very few exceptions, management ranks are closed to rotating Japanese staff. Many non Japanese management level employees are just glorified admins.

    Management lacks management skills.

    Bad employee retention. Good employees leave; alot of dead weight employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could run the company much more efficiently if you open up to new ideas and change.

    Few opportunities for advancement of national (American) staff hurts morale across the company.

    I worked at Mitsubishi International

    Pros

    Good exposure to many different stakeholders, broad responsibilities, opportunities for international travel, and very good community awareness and philanthropic programs.

    Cons

    There is a glass ceiling in terms of advancement for local staff, and many employees who have been working 10+ years are in a rut and lack motivation. As a result the company tends to keep people who aren't motivated, and frequently lose those who are. While Mitsubishi International Corp is an American company, management are often Japanese rotating staff from the parent company, Mitsubishi Corp, and are loyal to the Japanese parent. They are not incentivized to advance local staff because their assignments are only 3-5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to attract and retain quality talent, then change the structure of the company such that local staff's career advancement is paramount.

    Pros

    MIC is a big company. You can get good benefit.

    Cons

    Once you set the salary, pay won't change much. Eventually no promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's the worst I ever experienced.

    Crappy pay, loads of work, unfair distribution of work, tons of politics...only Japanese men succeed.

    I worked at Mitsubishi International

    Pros

    Huge company that is recognizable instantly. They own Nikkon, Mitsubishi Auto, Heavy Machinery, even a food company.

    Cons

    Low wages, Unfair distribution of work for those who are trying to do their jobs, too many long-term employees who do NOT want to work and are not punished for bad behavior. Extremely unprofessional staff level employees who are discourteous to each other on a daily basis, and management allows it. Unless you are a Japanese male from Tokyo, highly unlikely to move up within the office in Houston. No professional band, only management and staff. Educated people stay away. No upward mobility, no career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your DEAD BEAT workers, improve morale within the office, punish bad behavior, reward good behavior (not the other way around). Provide training and evenly distribute the work load. Stop loading up the good "working people" because you cannot get the unproductive people to work. You will lose good people EVERY TIME. Promote women and non-Japanese.
