    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.

    I worked at Mitsubishi International full-time

    Pros

    It is located in mid-town Manhattan for easy commute. It carries the big brand: “Mitsubishi” so everyone recognize the company.

    Cons

    There are few opportunities for advancement if you are hired for an assistant role that is either for middle or back office position. I have known many people who worked there for more than 30 years and never received promotions until the day they retired. The reason those people stayed because Mitsubishi used to have a pension plan, which was ended in year of 2014. The average pay raise is about 2% a year for most people and it is for everyone no matter how much he or she contributes. Therefore, there are not many people who are motivated to work. The Japanese management has no interest to adapt the US business culture and most managers don't even speak English.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe start listening to complaints instead of ignoring them.

    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.

    It's the worst I ever experienced.

    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.
