    I have been working at Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None - too many broken promises,

    Cons

    Lack of communication between managers with staff, lack of qualified managers, incomplete and deficient screening of new hires that allow people who recently changed their name to be hired when they had a background filled with indiscretions and abuse of power with high school students! Disgusting to see what happens - if senior managers protect them (if indiscretions known) or remove them for lying on the application

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees who bring issues to your attention and take action to resolve the problem (with your direct report) rather than letting the problem fester and negatively impact the entire team
