    I have been working at NTT full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Advantage 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

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Address 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at NTT

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Management 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.

    Former Employee - Network Engineer

    I worked at NTT

    Pros

    well, 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the ground level more and be more open to feedbacks

    Former Employee - Researcher in Yokosuka, Kanagawa (Japan)

    I worked at NTT full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    NTT 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at NTT full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Increase diversity and broaden thinking. Learning good English may be a place to start.
