    Pros

    One of the largest financial groups. Good product coverage and strong financial strength.

    Cons

    Gets quite messy at the senior levels with a lot of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be less scared of losing their jobs. Needs to instill good job security and career development for employees based on merit.

    Pros

    A toxic environment where your coworkers will not hesitate to gossip and scheme behind your back. Yes, that's the pro.

    Cons

    - Below par compensation for the hours and schedule demanded - Unfriendly and cliquish coworkers - Surprisingly low level of subject matter knowledge at all levels - Very low morale and high turnover at junior levels They will try to sell you with their "#1 ranking in league tables", but this bank is basically not well-respected by other PF banks and buy-side players - exit opportunities will be accordingly poor.

    Advice to Management

    Giving any would be a waste of time. Best day at this bank will be the day you leave.

    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 Management

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

    Regional branches need to have more controls

    Pros

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

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

    Advice to Management

    Allow local staff more opportunity to run the business.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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