Pros

Better salary than competitors
Really good benefits (health insurance and 401K especially) compared with competitors in the same industry.

Cons

Glass ceiling when it comes to promotion. i.e. management positions are mostly occupied by people from the owner company in Japan. they come and go every 3 to 5 year as senior management (director, CEO, CFO, etc.) even though some of them don't even speak English.
you will never be able to be promoted beyond general manager unless you bring tons of profit to the company.

Advice to Management

Decrease the number of people from Japan who occupy important positions when there are fully competent local workers in US. they should be promoted more and given more opportunities to thrive. when they feel they cannot get any higher than a certain position, they will simply leave the company with his/her clients.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience. The product is interesting. There is oportunity to travel which I like. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    The salaries are not competitive at all. An effort to become more competitive was made several years ago but I think it was just lip service. Promotion from within is rare.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees well to keep them and start promoting from within for management positions.
