    I have been working at Nomura Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nomura 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.

    Cons

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