    Has lost direction over the last 3 years. Wants to be a center of excellence, isn't... Hates being a KPO, which it is.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsMany Ops and IT processes supporting the regions are carried out here - although difficult to move around a lot, one can get a good exposure of the support teams across products and lines of business.

    ConsNomura as a firm is in a difficult situation of losing shareholder confidence; the Lehman acquisition was not a good move. It has cost the firm 5 years and a lot of wasted time and effort (in trying to make erstwhile lehman employees work like japanese do).
    Today, the India (Powai) office has about 3000 employees who support globally shrinking businesses. It is a good place for freshers to come in and learn how an IB works, but for experienced folks, there is limited growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone as you know what's going on but you choose to ignore it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent work environment

    Associate - Principal Developer (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsNomura offers excellent work environment, open door policy, lots of space to work with least micro management. Nature of job is challenging, and one learns new things every day.

    ConsUncertainty about companies prospects & unclear HR practices are the biggest downsides. Although, I don't think there are many others.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
