Tokyo is a great city, clean and efficient transportation system, company is highly accessible from most places. Clean and pleasant working environment, next to the headquarter is the beer hall which employees frequent to have a nice mug of beer and to enjoy great view of downtown Tokyo. However, salary not high enough for me to afford living in downtown Tokyo, I have to commute to work from Yokohama.
I'm a Chinese national, educated in England and speak fluent English, Chinese and Japanese. I worked in the finance department of the company. Despite my abilities, I was met with hostilities from some coworkers due to my foreigner status and being a female exec. In summary, a sexist and racist working environment, not much upward mobility for female employees like myself. However, these problems are pervasive in Japanese workplace culture and more of a societal problem, thus this company is not the only one with such problems.
Advice to Management
More upward mobility for women employees and foreign talents.
