    A strong domestic Japanese company....nothing else

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    Pros-Younger personnel are friendly, capable, and intelligent
    -Strong domestic business with good opportunites
    -Strong brandname within Japan
    -Nice office

    Cons-Extremely buearocratic and inflexible
    -No real responsibility leading to poor professional development
    -Low competence in the international arena
    -Rank is everything (executive, manager, peon, etc.)
    -Pomotional opportunities limited to top level Japanese university grads
    -Little control over personal career path
    -Benefits don't make-up for low compenstation

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some risk and actually invest into foreign business opportunities...small limited partneships have gotten you nowhere.

    Overall, it is a very traditional Japanese company that promotes only Japanese...

    IT Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt's always trying to generate business using its wireless technology
    Nice benefits including health, vision, and dental
    Self-management
    Semi-annual bonus distribution

    ConsOnly promotes expats and Japanese
    Very disorganized and lack of communication
    Bureaucracy, classification, and hierarchy

    DOCOMO for foreigns

    Director Business Development (Former Employee)

    ProsYou get a chance to do some really interesting things, globally

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould start valuing diversity if you guys want to be successful abroad...

    IT Review

    IT Support Lead (Former Employee)

    ProsTalented team of resources supporting various departments. IT/ERP application has been leveraged fully to automate process as much as possible. A nice and decent company to work for. As an outside contractor reaching the client team even though they are remotely located was never a problem. A rule book following culture.

    ConsMost of the planning for IT is done in adhoc basis. New versions of application and fuller utilization of all features of various tools was not done consistently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    satisfied with my intern experience

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople there are friendly and open minded. I can discuss my work with my supervisor whenever he has time. Salary is good.

    ConsIf I were asked to say some downsides of working at NTT DoCoMo USA labs, I would say their research team is not very big and the chances of exchanging ideas with people from similar background are slim.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNTT DoCoMo is a strong company in the field of telecommunications. I feel proud to have worked there for one summer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
