    I worked at NTT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well funded, long term focus and goals, research oriented, cutting edge technology, business relationships with many other NTT group companies, mostly very high quality products

    Cons

    Reacts slowly to market changes, long term goals more important than short term success to an extreme degree, all decisions are made in Japan, career advancement is slow-paced, management are generalists not specialists.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the market is telling you, do not enter into contracts in business areas you do not understand, honest evaluation of products is crucial, every employee is responsible for quality, don't be afraid to train employees, selling products is very different than conducting research - employee feedback and direction from management is more important and should be more frequent.

    I have been working at NTT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All my peers are professional and works well with client. Enjoyed my assignment and work with client. HR and IT department used to be very helpful and nice.

    Cons

    In order to compete with other firm, they promised client something that they never try to do. Broken their own promise no more than 5 months. Besides, they over charged client and keep consultant's pay very low. Client now is very disappointed with NTT and said will never trust them again.

    The whole acquisition thing is a nightmare, all systems and functions are messed up. If you need help from someone they will transfer the issue from one department to another.

    No transparency on everything, you wouldn't know what project are out there. And you wouldn't know how did the "secrect team" decide on your own benefit and career development.

    CG used to be a very professional consulting firm, and it is a shame that all the good culture is gone with the acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, and appreciate their hard work. Treat your client with honesty. Credit first, Client first.

    I worked at NTT full-time

    Pros

    Only one thing I remember was that it was a relatively easy work because it was a simple desk work.

    Cons

    As it was long ago when I worked for that big company, I do not remember well about that company.

    Advice to Management

    There is nothing need to be improved, but it there had been more female managers, it would have been better.

    Pros

    Paycheck. Location. Enjoyed my team.

    Cons

    HR does not care about you. Employees who are full time have to worry about the project ending and being put on the bench which won't last long until he/she is let go. No flexibility. Little to no opportunity for advancement. Unorganized. Have to answer to more than one manager about the same issues (think Office Space). Your coworkers are looking for a new job as well.

    Advice to Management

    Relax.

    I have been working at NTT full-time

    Pros

    Working at NTT feels like working in a startup environment with resources that only a big company can offer.

    Cons

    Although NTTi3 in Palo Alto acts as a startup, NTT from Japan actually decides what projects engineers should be working on which can sometimes limit your imagination and the development of innovation.
