    I worked at NTT as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NTT is the one of the largest telecom companies in the world (one of the tier-1 ISP). Of course the company is quite nice to work at. The colleagues are pretty friendly to you even though their English is not good enough. Also the food and travel experience in Japan are pretty nice.

    Cons

    Language. If you know absolutely no Japanese it is highly not recommended to work there. While they actually hire you to practise their workers for English, you have to know some Japanese to do everything smoothly. Also If you watch some Japanese drama show you will know some of the bad habits in Japanese company.

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

    Pros

    Research position at NTT. Good work environment, very flexible. One can learn knowledge for telecommunications market and earn research skills. Rank doesn't really matter.

    Cons

    Outside research position, most of the things are very conservative so it takes time to put things forward. Overall, relationship with your boss really matters, not your ability.

    Advice to Management

    Although a good company, it is so conservative that it may be difficult for new comers to fit in or change somethings in the system. Company management had better listen voices from various positions and try to make the environment better.
