    I have been working at NTT full-time (more than a year)

    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 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.

    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.

    I worked at NTT

    Pros

    Great place for state-of-the-art research, rich research fields, friendly work environment among colleagues, lots of opportunities for publication/presentation/forum etc., flexible work time, collaboration with other research labs within NTT is possible.

    Cons

    As a foreigner, you may feel the limitation on your career growth opportunity. Communication in English was not very effective. It turned out that I found it easier to work on my Japanese instead of communicate with people in English. If you consider a full-time position, fluent Japanese is a must.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open-mined to foreign researchers. Say things earlier and more explicitly if you want to correct things or change directions.

    I worked at NTT

    Pros

    A Japanese firm with long history, management style is very japanese, with good team spirit and good mentor guiding policy. Very talented ppl around working with you.

    Cons

    With limited grown space, not so suitable for young newly gratuated students want to work hard play hard. No grow room for foreigners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe more open minded, don't set bondoury between foreigners and japanese. Top talent programe is suggested to motivate young talents.

    Bureaucratic company which needs more listening ears

    Former Employee - Network Engineer
    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

    No opinion of CEO
