Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Nomura Securities full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Performance is getting better and better after acquiring Lehman;
Senior manager cares employees, and junior people have access to MD and ED;
Great exposure to many areas of your work, for experienced people it's a great place to play.

Cons

No positive culture to serve the growth, even though senior managers care about how to conduct business, workers don't care much how to treat people;
Not a perfect place for entry levels.

Advice to Management

More could be done to allocate right people to right work

    I worked at Nomura Securities full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits, great lunch menus
    Beautiful office

    Cons

    Worked directly with one of the very senior management members - very harsh working environment
    No work/life balance
    Not even words of appreciation for hard work
    very closed off Japanese members
    No transparency - employees are not told what's going on. When it's finally time to update the employees, the information to be disclosed is very carefully selected and employees feel the update means nothing to them.


  2. "Very good, lots of room for personal growth."

    Pros

    There is a high degree of internal and external visibility. Good opportunities to work on complex transactions and have a central role in those deals.

    Cons

    Small lending footprint means limited access to corporate clients. The brand name is not well established in the US and many relationships are new, so it is an uphill battle at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stick with its plan and stomach some years of painful growth if it is really committed long-term to building a global brand. Otherwise clients will just think that Nomura is going to disappear in a few years and retreat to Japan as it has done in the past.
