    Pros

    Large company with good benefits.

    Cons

    Various forms of favoritism are clear and present within the organization. If you are Japanese, you will be given plenty of opportunities. If you are not, good luck on finding your own way with much less support. For instance, there is an established job transfer system to gain different skills, but only if you are a Japanese expat!

    Advice to Management

    American employees feel under appreciated and passed over for the 5 year Japanese expat needs. It's a constant worry for career development. Trump is coming for you and Americans can do the same jobs, better!

    Outstanding team of people. Positive corporate culture. Great passion for technology and art for which it's used.

    Pay is substantially lower than competitors. Lack of advancement opportunity and low pay breeds forced apathy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth.

    Pros

    One of the few large name-brand corporations with HQ located on Long Island.

    Cons

    Little promotion from within the ranks, even less if you are female. Inertia is rewarded and there are numerous employees who have managed to remain employed for many years by staying under the radar. Once you are given a high profile assignment, it is likely a prelude to demotion or termination. Continuous culling of experienced employees from the ranks to reduce costs with little to no acknowledgement of their departure or the reduction in skill or product history, followed by hiring for the same function in other areas of the company. Demeaning focus on badging-in and out times, absolutely no flexible work in terms of hours or remote. The major decision-making and management of the company occurs after 9pm when Tokyo opens for business and is almost entirely orchestrated by the Japanese. Board of Directors is completely out of touch and have little to no impact on or understanding of what is actually happening in the company, or in the marketplace. Made dozens of constructive recommendations in my exit interview, none of which were ever circulated to my department management.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. Your loss.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Work is not pressing everyday.

    Cons

    No room to grow. Perception is to keep the high contributors at bay and do not promote.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the chaos.

    Pros

    Good environment, 9 to 5, great work life balance

    Cons

    Difficulty to grow in some departments. Upper management mostly Japanese so communication can be hard

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within, people feel they are not appreciated because they are limited in how much they can grow over time
