    I have been working at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love working with my current group. When you like the people at your work, it makes your job so much easier. Pros: decent work hours, good team members, opportunities for growth for someone starting out of college.

    Cons

    Sometimes the Japanese culture can be a little different from American. The whole concept of "face time" that comes from Japan can be frustrating. Hierarchy with higher up management.

    I worked at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There were weekly training seminars for all the summer interns to familiarize them with programs such as Bloomberg and Capital IQ.

    Cons

    There was a very heavy focus on individual work, and rarely provided interns the opportunity to work together in teams.

    I have been working at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at a number of financial firms, and the working environment here is saner than most. No prima donnas, friendly and collegial atmosphere.

    Cons

    They are a bit conservative in the sense that they aren't as open as they might be to new/better ways of doing things. There can be a "we don't do things that way" attitude rather than a "can-do" attitude. Part of the Japanese culture, perhaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to change and innovation.

    I have been working at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Long term prospects (Japanese culture); Close relationships between workers; Transferable on the CV - multinational bank. The business is doing well $$$.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and direction from Senior Management. Long term employment often attracts people who wouldn't survive elsewhere. Systems are complex and creaking - built over years of adding extra bits and plastering over - not cutting edge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency and better communication on direction of company
