    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) for less than a year

    Pros

    Intern program was small, but extremely helpful, had a one week in class training and then we could rotate throughout the different parts of the company during our time there.

    Cons

    It is a rather small firm, so it was hard to develop a comprehensive understanding however the in class training compensated for that.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Has potential, but when will it ever be realized? CEO has a killer tan!

    Cons

    Weak management. Grew too fast and now buckling with not enough resources to effectively run the business.

    Advice to Management

    Do something! Why are you so lazy?

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There is fruits every Tuesday and Thursday. Dress down every Friday and during the summer.

    Cons

    What every US made during the year are either cover other regions loss or pay them a huge amount for the un-response support and services

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for the good of the company and don't let the international structure take over a well established company

  4. "very unsteady, very political, very London/Japan dominated"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Executive Director in New York, NY

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small size feel is nice. There were some but people and good teamwork.

    Cons

    High turn-over on every level, voluntary and involuntary. Bloated international corporate governance superstructure is costly and mostly political. Advancement possibilities are limited.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) for less than a year

    Pros

    Small, "start-up" feel; not a lot of red tape; minimal compliance supervision

    Cons

    Compensation well under the industry average. HR is more or less a placeholder. Growth in spurts, not done prudently, not consistent over time. In particular, 1st year analysts get screwed (or a free ride) due to fixed bonus ranges with varying hours and degrees of responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize the workload analysts receive. Make compensation tied to junior-level output and hours on the desk, not the performance of senior personnel.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is the execution arm of MUFG/BTMU, big dreams with a small pipeline

    Cons

    Hamstrung at the Japanese holding entity with regulators and controls from both sides of the Pacific. Europe holds outsized influence but marginal revenue risk and finance woefully underfunded

    Advice to Management

    Merge with the commercial bank, no need to support a separate corporate structure without the independence

    Pros

    used to be flat management, flexibility to use technologies you like.

    Cons

    tedious work everyday. crazy business users. no respect to employee's contribution too many turn over on both IT and Business sides applications are replaced with systems in London office, which has very odd, bad designed system and full of political playing. London office kept losing money and not stable.

    Advice to Management

    London and Japan office dominant everything, you should fight for your right on behalf of people in NY office.

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    While it is part of a large, global financial organization, the company is small and has a small-firm feel. Employees feel like they can have a real impact.

    Cons

    Too many business decisions required approval from Japan. It often felt that by the time the approvals arrived, the business opportunity was gone.

    Advice to Management

    Local management needs to be given greater latitude to execute on its business plans.
