    I have been working at Akebono Corporation (North America) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a Japanese company hence layoffs are lesser than in most local companies
    This being comparatively a smaller company, with good skills, one can contribute more and succeed.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of communication between the various departments and is pretty much over the wall transaction between departments.
