    Excellent work environment with great opportunities for self development

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsWork is both challenging and rewarding, and there is lots of camaraderie with colleagues. Everyone treats each other like family and are very passionate about their jobs.

    ConsAs a bank, the culture is conservative. This is similar across all banks regardless whether they're Japanese, European, or American. The banking industry is heavily regulated and compliance must be adhered to which comes at an expense to speed and flexibility.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Japanese bank for Japanese clients

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLarge bank with a certain degree of stability. Reward loyalty if you have been there long enough. Pay is in line with market.

    ConsThe bank has different standards for Japanese and non-Japanese clients. Japanese clients always have priority - sometimes it seems that the bank's foreign branches exist mostly to serve Japanese corporates in overseas markets.

    Japanese staff seldomt socialise with foreign employee. Long hours because of peer pressure (Japanese staff usually stay very late). Sub-standard travel policy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBusiness is business. Please judge a business on its own risk/return, not on the client's nationality.

    Excellent for junior to mid-career professionals

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFriendly, organised, clear communication, positive environment; flat hierarchy, some opportunities for professional development, objective appraisals, international and multicultural environment, excellent location

    ConsSome difficulties with software, some difficulties in communication globally, insufficient high quality training, no sport facilities, only partial health insurance

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is a great company with lots of opportunities for growth, but in many cases investment decisions are based exclusively on political reasons and do not take into account risk management good practice. WIth some effort, it will be one of the best financial groups globally!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
