    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Asahi Kasei as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are really few or almost no female directors. Career paths for females were limited.

    Cons

    As a typical Japanese company, workers respect each other. Good work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire global standard without deteriorating the traditional culture.


  2. "Asahi Kasei offers 1-year internships for up to 15 students a year. It's good fun, and a great experience!!"

    Pros

    If you ever want to experience Japan, Asahi Kasai's Student internships is a perfect way to do so. Challenging work, a salary which is sufficient to live in an expensive country like japan, japanese staff/work culture, and loads of international students to hang out with. Most students (including myself) work on speech recognition.

    Cons

    The Asahi Kasei Student internship is based in Atsugi. It takes about 1h to go to Tokyo, which is alright for some sightseeing but gets a bit annoying if you want to just meet friends for dinks/dinner in Tokyo.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that not just the students, but also Asahi Kasei can benefit a lot from these internships through a new influx of ideas, exposure to different cultures, the english language, etc.
