    Pros

    If you want the least responsibilities, this is your ideal working place. Many no brainer work, actually can't really think of any pros.

    Cons

    Very few communication within the department, and they don't bother to train the temp employees. Japanese managers are mostly unfriendly, perhaps better to say it is a formal and uptight office to work at. No effective communication existed in the team, and management are disorganized. Overturn rate is fairly high, and they have no idea where their projects are heading to. Interview process took more than one hour, mostly by the time consuming paperwork by HR. However, I saw cases like they took so long to hire a temp, but fire by the same day notice due to the policy changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication within the company, and use the money to train people instead of hiring consulting companies to cut budgets.

    Pros

    Fast paced with smart people. A strong desire to be a major global player and change whatever needs changing to accomplish that goal.

    Cons

    Japanese staff are very good but rotate every two years which can be disruptive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow local staff more opportunity to run the business.

    Management is incompetent

    Pros

    Decent stability. Strong balance sheet ensures that company will survive through ups and downs. Bank is sizeable enough so it is not dependent on one person or group.

    Cons

    Management is completely incompetent. What may work in Japan does not translate outside of Japan. The best thing management could do would be to replace all Japanese management with competent local management so the business can start to compete on an equal footing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let competent people lead businesses and cease lifetime employment for home staff.

    Pros

    one of the few places hiring in late 2008. the management you would be working with are very nice people. they are your advocates and are good people to work for.

    Cons

    very low pay, below 25k in midtown manhattan. japanese style is to not promote movement within the company. don't sponsor for licensing and only recently offer to pay for masters. standard benefits package. the work you do will be the exact same thing every day. members of other divisions on your floor will absolutely not look you in the eye, especially the analysts. quite strange.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you want quality people that will stay with the company, you have to provide incentive $$ and opportunity to develop professionally.

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group

    Pros

    I can't really think of any good reasons to work here. I worked as a temp employee and was let go under questionable circumstances. Perhaps if one obtains a higher level position with solid prospects for upward mobility Bank of Tokyo would be a good option.

    Cons

    The people I worked under directly were not particularly competent. I had very little interaction with management. I felt that my skills and abilities were undervalued. The Senior Management didn't even know my name, or bother to ask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your employees. I think that more interaction between Senior Management and other employees would improve morale and productivity.

    Pros

    If you are happy doing nothing, then this is the place to be! Lots of down time and you do not have to think alot. I spend alot of time reviewing world events, therefore, I'm a walking collection of newspaper articles. I can tell you what's going on anywhere in the world. I have a lot of time to learn new things such as UML, C# and .net.

    Cons

    You may forget your name because your brain is not allowed to be used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close all North American offices and put us out of our misery!
