    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depending on where you are in the company, the environment can be very toxic. There are a couple yellers and a lot more managers who don't appreciate the workers. I advise senior management to intervene when employees complain about abusive managers. Don't dismiss complaints and let people sort things out themselves.

    Pros

    Exposure to a wide range of business and product lines: apparel, textiles, chemicals, minerals, food, forestry and communications.

    Cons

    It is a Japanese trading company. The culture is very different for an American. Communication is an enormous problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees better. Manage projects better. Think through consequences.
