    I have been working at Sumitomo Corporation of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits are amazing, office location is nice

    Cons

    No american upper managment, all upper managment (senior) is japanese. They openly speak japanese in front of non japanese speaking staff. Very quick to judge and extremly slow to forgive if an error occurs. Took this position for the pay and benefits, had I have known what I was getting into I may have passed. Regardless of title if an american manages japanese staff the japanese staff have a greater ability for direct access to upper managment because they are japanese.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managment should walk the floors more and interact with lower level employees. You have countless hard working employees that get zero attention.


  2. "Good place for an ambitious younger worker"
