    "Japanese bank for Japanese clients"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Large bank with a certain degree of stability. Reward loyalty if you have been there long enough. Pay is in line with market.

    Cons

    The bank has different standards for Japanese and non-Japanese clients. Japanese clients always have priority - sometimes it seems that the bank's foreign branches exist mostly to serve Japanese corporates in overseas markets.

    Japanese staff seldomt socialise with foreign employee. Long hours because of peer pressure (Japanese staff usually stay very late). Sub-standard travel policy.

    Advice to Management

    Business is business. Please judge a business on its own risk/return, not on the client's nationality.
