    Great opportunity to work in the media, travel a lot and learn all kinds of wacky things.

    I have been working at NHK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of travel. First row seat to the news. If you like international affairs and the USA, this is definitely an interesting opportunity for you.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for advancement and the divide between local staff and staff from Japan is constantly underlined from compensation differentials to how decisions are made. If you can't handle that, this is definitely not a good place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loyalty and morale would increase if there were better recourse for bad behavior from the senior members of the office. Also, an increase in the pay to minimize the vast difference between local and Japanese staff's quality of life would be appropriate.

    It looks good on your resume, but don't expect a long-term career, let alone a favorable work atmosphere here.

    the boss does not communicate well with others, the salary is too low and the opportunities for advancement are nil

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you respected, supported and took better care of your employees, then your results would be much better.

    I worked at NHK

    Pros

    Great colleagues, interesting work, travel means the job has a lot of upsides. The work is varied and leads to a good knowledge of a variety of areas, however this is all informal self-directed learning.

    Cons

    Management is very conservatively Japanese and there is limited opportunity for development. Being on-call 24/7 is not conducive to being able to plan your life well.

    I have been working at NHK part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    NHK is an institution in the best possible sense of the word, everyone carries an air of being honoured to work there and having nice colleagues makes the job a joy.

    Cons

    The only downside to NHK is its location... I wish the subway was a little closer, it's a hike or short bus ride to get to either entrance.
