    I have been working at Obayashi

    Pros

    a. Less confrontational approach at work.
    b. goal oriented approach of senior management, could favor performers who take initiative.

    Cons

    a. one gets impression contract employees are seen as objects.
    b. typical in asia to expect employees to work for cruely long hours (whether producing or not).
    c. racism seems common. westerners get preferred treatment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase transparency and incentive scheme (seems typical problem everywhere!).
