    Pros

    Shared cafe for lunch, GMO Yours. Many types of internet services offered

    Cons

    Each company in the groups acts mostly alone. Little co-operation. Thinks and acts like a big company even when each company isn't Management is focused on numbers not service progression.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should focus on developing their team members more. Not just numbers.

    I have been working at GMO Internet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company can be a great career builder for getting you into the IP industry. Especially in Japan because the kind of companies that do business in this industry are few. Very friendly to foreigners that want to get away from the image of going into Japan just to teach English, but want to work at a real job. It is very challenging at first, but you get asked to do a lot. So, the amount of experience you can gain here...

    Cons

    Salary can be difficult to embrace at first. However, this is Japan and not as high as most people outside of Japan expect. There are also cultural differences as well but all part of the experience.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees concerns and find ways to communicate to hear their true intentions.

    No clear mission, people is underestimated, no respect
