    Want a Culture that Will Last 100 Years? Follow These Rules

    The great Peter Drucker wrote the following about Japanese management culture in 1971: "If there is one point on which all authorities on Japan are in agreement, it is that Japanese institutions, whether businesses or government agencies, make decisions by "consensus." The Japanese, we are told, debate a proposed decision throughout the organization until there is agreement on it.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Hitachi Data Systems in August 2017.


    A staffing agency worker contacted me over reaching out to me telling me about how I'd be a good fit for the role of a new graduate SDE at HDS, Bellevue. A date for the interview was fixed and a phone interview with a coding round was conducted. I thought I did pretty well, considering I had some detailed questions about the workplace and their development process, which happened after a coding question that I did perfectly well on. However, I am not surprised with this outcome, since I read about similar experiences beforehand here on
