    Nothing could be worse then working for this company

    Entry Level Position (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsI really can't think of anything positive. I left the company with little or no useful experience for my next job. Only bad memories. This is a warning to all who are about to accept the "Securities Technician" entry level position they post for recent college grads.

    ConsWhere do I start? The movie Office Space comes to mind. You are micro-managed and have to punch-in/out everyday. If you are late 3 times even for a minute after 9 - you will be called into a meeting to discuss how you can make a better effort. I can go on, but I am hoping you get the drift by now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have none.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The company seemed inconsistent with respect to strategy, constantly shifting and chasing the last thing that worked.

    Director (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsI liked the people and they tried to pay pretty well.

    ConsI didn't like the political environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommit.

    Challenging to work in a company where there is no authority locally and all decisions reside in Japan.

    Managing Director (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsDuring the 2008 - 2012 there was an entrepreneurial culture thanks to the American CEO

    ConsNo local authority and no sense of urgency in Japan to support the local business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGlobal strategy -- local execution -- trust your local leadership or change the players.

    Flat and efficient organization

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsAlthough it is part of the global 500 organization, this US broker dealer entity is new and growing fast. The majority of the management team and staff are US employees unlike many other Japanese financial institutions. Corporate culture promotes efficiency and work-life balance. The organization structure is flat and everyone has a high visibility.

    ConsFlat and efficient organization means everyone is accountable and expected to be an expert. Sometimes I miss having a big team and bouncing off ideas with my colleagues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'd like to see more frequent communication (i.e. monthly or quarterly) from management regarding firm's overall performance and goals.

    Bureaucratic and slow in progress (at least in London office, Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International Plc)

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    Pros-Boutique experience, not so high pressured.
    -Decent pay
    -Good package: healthcare, pension, holiday and other benefits

    Cons-Political, with superficial camaraderie. Very much dependent on the desk of employment.
    -Poor HR processes, with little support and professionalism
    -Slow in development with severe growing pains
    -Revenue generating departments are very skewed. Not able to develop into new markets.
    -Mis-match of senior management priorities and implementation when priorities are filtered down to staff.
    -Too focused on hiring new and highly paid management staff, as opposed to concentrating to developing existing workforce. This is disruptive to work culture as well as acting as severe drain on limited resources.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
