    I worked at Mitsubishi International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's consistent pay. 35hr work week. With no weekends. They have direct deposits and mobile access to your pay info. Commute wasn't bad. They have medical dental and vision and 401k. A small percent of parking is reimbursed.

    Cons

    The benefits are mandatory and will be deducted from your check from day one. And it's expensive. 1/3 of my income went to pay the medical. You have to clock in at exactly 9am. Not 9:01 or 9:05, or 8:58.... exactly 9am!!!and if it's 5pm they expect you to clock out at exactly 5pm if you are done with your task or not. They expect you to just leave everything and abandon your task and clock out. Otherwise you need advance approval.
    They expect you to be perfect and there is no training. The say they will train you but they are always busy or absent. They expect you to choose work over family. The place is like a sweat shop. And there is total silence in the building. Nobody talks to each other.
    I was let go because I took the day off to enroll my children for school. I gave 2 weeks advance notice. And had approval. And was fired the next day, when I returned to work. When I asked why I was being terminated, I was told the decision was already made and they didn't want to go into detail.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be patient and invest when you have a dependable employee. The success of your team is a direct result of your ability to coach and train. If I failed, then you failed me! I was a perfect candidate for you to mold into what you wanted me to become. I had no experience with that position and was still in my learning period.

    Good benefits
    Volunteer opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Treat your American staff like you do the Japanese staff in reference to respect and wages.
    Listen to your American staff - all ideas are worth listening to
    Stop treating the American staff as numbers only
    Protect ALL employees, not just the Japanese staff

    Pros

    This is a stable opportunity, but little room for growth outside of your position. They provide volunteer opportunities and other social functions very often.

    Cons

    Chances of really moving up are slim
    Very tough and conservative management
    Errors, no matter how small are treated rigorously.
    The pay is low for industry standard.

    Pros

    You are working for a fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to employees and never changes its ways. Most of the management is Japanese and you cannot climb the corporate ladder if you are not.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your none Japanese employees

    I have been working at Mitsubishi International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on the industry/group, there are opportunities for growth and to be treated fairly well. Unfortunately, such opportunities are pretty much limited to men.

    Cons

    A very conservative Japanese company resistant to change. Strange dynamic between Japanese ex-pats and local hires. Cultural differences makes working environment trying.

    I worked at Mitsubishi International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Easy work - if you find that a pro
    Work independently - no micro-managing
    Multiple people in the same dept can take vacation days at the same time (not good for customers / but great for employees)
    Many paid holidays, more than most companies

    Cons

    No good deed goes unpunished
    No room for growth for women
    No training program
    Management very secretive for no reason
    Not enough work - bored most of the day
    Uninspiring job
    Management follows Japanese culture in the U.S.A. although Japanese culture would be considered extremely rude in the U.S.A. - this is difficult to adapt to

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with your employees. You may find out that most non-management employees are not concerned with the information that you consider confidential anyway.
    Treat women as equals, it's the law in our country
    Protect yourself from lawsuits - perhaps provide Western culture classes to rotating staff

    Pros

    Great business ethics and internal control. Employees may be privileged to work on big international trade businesses on a global scale.

    Cons

    Low wage and mediocre benefits. The culture is very much Japanese and unfit for thriving American employees looking for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to work the American employees like a Japanese one, please use same pay scale as they do in Mitsubishi Corporation. Otherwise, the culture/benefits/wage/and etc need to be modernized to that of an American company in 2015.

    Pros

    Good work ethics, friendly employees, opportunities to explore different markets and indusries from the same department. Average benefit comparing all large or small companies.

    Cons

    Low pay comparing with US companies of the same size. Culture is still Japanese even though it is a subsidiary incorporated in the USA. The worst is no promotion opportunity because all middle or upper managers are rotated from Japan to the US.

    Advice to Management

    Open mind and welcome American business culture. Rotating staffs do not always must come as managers, instead they can come to learn American ways of operating business.
