    Demotivating, Repetitive, Just plain DULL!

    Pricing Officer (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsAdvantage of working with some talented/ down to earth characters, who are unfortunately all being taken for a ride

    The Location. although it is due to change to somewhere cheaper by 2015

    ConsLack of flexibility: little or NO working from home, expect to be monitored on EVERYTHING from what time you come in to how long you spend in the bathroom..

    Handholding: Expect to never use your own initiative, whas the point when you HAVE TO follow all the rules set by above (tokyo)

    VERY japan centric culture - NO compatibility for Europeans. VERY difficult environment and odd work ethic

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress employee concerns and issues properly, not just by having a " if you dont like it, then leave" attitude.
    Provide more freedom of ideas and opinions. stop relying on rules and regulations which stops creativity.
    Allow employees to be in charge of their own working structures, provide a more trusting approach

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

    NTT MSC - Shameful Japanese co.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Cyberjaya (Malaysia)

    ProsIf working under Japanese, able to gain exposure to Japanese working culture and methodology

    ConsPoor benefits. Easily 40% below market rate.
    Local top mgmt weakest link. Lack leadership, professionalism and competency. Not MNC quality.
    Does not invest in employees. Left to figure things out by themselves.
    Poor company values. CEO openly having affair with staff and gets special privileges incl promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour local top mgmt is not capable of managing the company.
    The working level staff, the backbone of your company will suffer.

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

    old fashion japanse company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Your work hard will keep you a secure job
    - Company has very strong financial status as held by Japanse government

    Cons- Good result doesnot mean good evaluation
    - local employees have less career opportunity comparing with Japanese ones

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should give equal career oppotunity also to local employees, listen more to their voices.
    Sit in one's heart not on one's head, please.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bureaucratic company which needs more listening ears

    Network Engineer (Former Employee)

    Proswell, NTT is a big telco, if i am not wrong, it should be the biggest telco in Asia. Their IP / MPLS coverage is very strong in Asia, and O. k coverage for the U S and Europe region. Able to get some exposure to big projects, on the design, deliverable, and maintenance.

    ConsThe culture is very political and unfortunately a bureaucratic approach of working. There is red tapes everywhere. It is very hard to climb the corporate ladder or have the same empowerment. There are many processes involved just to get things done, of which it is really frustrating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the ground level more and be more open to feedbacks

    Advanced but not the most engaging.

    Researcher (Former Employee)
    Yokosuka, Kanagawa (Japan)

    ProsNTT is one of the largest communication companies in the world. Therefore, state-of-the-art research facilities were to be expected. The work culture was fairly laid back as it was a research and development company, and co-workers were intelligible persons always ready to help.

    ConsThe bureaucracy was quite troublesome. NTT has been around for a while, and their style hasn't changed much. Often, as younger members of teams stand up to state their idea, they are shot down without much interest from the senior members.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the younger members of the team. Some absolutely fantastic ideas come from their fresh perspective.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good long term employer with a steady revenue stream

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStable employer with good values and work life balance. Compensation is above average.Suits the salaried man with long term tolerance for ambiguity.

    ConsLack of diversity in views and too many long term employees who cannot go anywhere else. Hence a sense of negativity and dis-empowered thinking prevails. Management is also exclusively Japanese and changes often causing oscillating policies. Not a place if you are the upwardly mobile sort.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease diversity and broaden thinking. Learning good English may be a place to start.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
