      Positive Outlook

      I worked at Mitsui & Co. full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Constantly trying new areas for opportunities and willing to allocate resources for new projects. Reasonable benefits and compensation. Lots of opportunities for travel.

      Cons

      Management is rotated often from HQ office in Tokyo so organization is constantly changing. Work environment is alienating for non-Japanese. Only HQ staff gets promoted and few opportunities for national staff. Communication between HQ staff and national staff is poor.

      Advice to Management

      If you're going to work in a US office be more open and communicative.

      I worked at Mitsui & Co. full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Very famous company in Japan. Many smart people are your colleagues. The working environment is very nice and comfortable. Breakfast, snacks, coffee, etc are served every day. People (except "few") are nice, polite, helpful to each other.

      Cons

      Because the company is big, too many departments there. Every department looks like has no any relationships although they are all under the same name "Mitsui". Also, some departments are very dynamic.

      Advice to Management

      HR department should help employees have more information of the company's organization, services for employee, business of different departments, potentials in the company development etc.

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Mitsui & Co. full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Good work life balance, good benefits, undemanding job, stable job for life, multicultural

      Cons

      Low pay compared to peers, zero progression, having to deal with at times condescending japanese expats who cannot speak english yet occupy leadership positions because of nationality, this is not a company for you if you are not a japanese. Dealing with their lip service is even more painful. Business model is at risk of being obsolete because the japanese are not nimble and open minded enough to compete globally.

      Advice to Management

      Knowing how the company and culture works, i know that no amount of well meaning advice will be heeded by management who have a far too superior image of themselves. Strength in japan does not mean strength elsewhere.
