    I worked at Hikari Tsushin full-time

    Pros

    I cant really think of anything except work life balance, since we dont get much work.

    Cons

    This company not for IT engineers or any foriegner for a matter of fact. I feel bad for many of IT people/ foreigners who were told empty promise.

    I think many IT people feel the same way about this company. Unfortunately I am more disappointed with my experience here, not much training and I dont think people stay long time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring IT people/ foriegner.
