Pros

People are very friendly and understanding when you need time off. The parent company is a respected company in Japan and globally.

Cons

There were no growth opportunities at NTT America. Upper management always came from Japan and they brought their Japanese way of thinking to the office in San Jose. The skills I learned were not really transferable to other positions at other companies. There was no training program either.

    "Global network side of business is a tough working environment with a foreign management that caters to the Japanese."

    Pros

    GAMs have autonomy and competitive pay, benefits and PTO. NTT is a foreign company but they observe all US holidays when most of US companies don't. Requesting time off was never an issue. A lot of GAMs also work virtually.

    Cons

    NTT owns over 400 companies worldwide and as such, has a massive global footprint with a vast array of services. However, they're very decentralized, each company is its own profit center, and NTT has done very little to bring their companies to work together and maximize their global power as a single provider. NTT is very slow to react to the needs of US prospects, absolutely cannot work at the speed of US business, and for this reason, they mostly deal with existing clients vs. winning new business. This makes it very tough on "hunters" within a new sales acquisition team.

    Advice to Management

    Think and act like a US company if you want to win US business.

    Pros

    Getting more organized and running more like a real global company. More independent from NTT Japan. Good quality ethic.

    Cons

    Still divisions left over from old Verio and old NTTA, even 5-6 years later. Processes are very manul and hold back success.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify org chart and make some clear decisions.
