    I worked at Advanced World Solutions, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The company has a good training package for fresh graduates. For people interested in learning Japanese, this company is suited for you. The work environment is friendly and people have good relationships with each other. They have flexible time-in plan. Employees have opportunity to gain experience in different technologies and business domains depending on the project assignment.

    Cons

    Some hectic projects require employees to work on weekends. There are fairly a number of cases that requires employees to work overtime and overnight in order to meet deadlines due to incorrect estimation of work. Because of the project-based culture in the company, employees have limited chances of choosing the type of work, technology or domain that they want to focus on. To be able to acquire expertise on specific technical skills as well as business domain, one has to be in the right place at the right time in order to be included in the right project.

    Pros

    They offer a lot for someone that's just starting out in the industry. In-house training, required certifications, and very frank but supportive managers.

    Cons

    Low salary start meant that you're salary can only grow so much with the proper yearly increase. Japanese-client-centric, it means that they are more concerned on the projects in Japan since that's is their focus.

    I worked at Advanced World Solutions, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Nihongo training - Environment maybe okay, depends on project

    Cons

    - Low salary - Technical training is literally just self study. - Will not actively provide assistance to its employees. Amidst Covid, employees that were approved for work from home arrangement had to secure their own internet connection. Some employees are still working at the office even with government quarantine, curfew and work from home instructions.
