Pros

ORIX benefits are decent compared to many alternatives.
Most of the people I worked with were highly motivated, intelligent and were great to learn from.

Cons

After working at ORIX USA for just a modest amount of time (1 bonus cycle) , you realize that the entire place is run for the benefit of just a handful of senior executives (even despite being majority owned by the Japanese). The senior executives are more concerned with traveling on their private jets than managing risk. They also had no problem laying all the blame (losses) off on underlings, despite being primarily responsible for the investment decisions made at the firm. At the end of the day, many of the most competent individuals lost their jobs, so that the incompetent senior executives could keep their own.

Advice to Management

The Japanese need to get rid of just about every executive left at the firm. Among the ones left, it has become an old boys club that will add no long-term value to the organization, but will succeed in lining their own pockets and continuing to support their extravagant lifestyles.
