    I have been working at Mizuho Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have not yet compared with other employers, but the pay is pretty good here, and I believe that you do get recognized for doing good work. Despite it being an enormous organization, there is the opportunity to get involved in the whole range of activities regarding the work. Mgmt appears to be moving toward using fewer expats and giving greater responsibility to local non-Japanese staff. Also, the bank is relatively aggressive (within its conservative context, if that makes sense), so that there is a good chance to be involved in many transactions.

    Cons

    Still too many expats, some of whom seem to have been chosen solely because of some proficiency in English despite their otherwise unexceptional abilities. Also, given that expats tend to be here for only a few years, they often do not have the longterm perspective that local staff needs to have. Mgmt appears to want to improve employees' work-life balance, but there's still a long way to go (hours are long). There is also too much bureaucracy, and, while the Credit area is trying to be more cooperative, at times they seem more driven by a need to hold onto tradition or by an instinctive over-conservatism, as well as an overdeveloped fear of making the mistake of approving the wrong credit (and little sense of the risk of rejecting a good credit).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fewer expats. Shorter hours. Less bureaucracy.

    I worked at Mizuho Financial

    Pros

    friendly atmosphere, not much overtime work

    Cons

    The possibility of promotion is quite limited since it's a subsidiary of Mizuho Bank and Japan's banking system places high value on seniority as opposed to meritocracy. lack of industry experts, lack of fresh graduates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIre more new graduates and industry experts. Make the work environment more innovation-friendly.
