    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Great place for state-of-the-art research, rich research fields, friendly work environment among colleagues, lots of opportunities for publication/presentation/forum etc., flexible work time, collaboration with other research labs within NTT is possible.

    Cons

    As a foreigner, you may feel the limitation on your career growth opportunity. Communication in English was not very effective. It turned out that I found it easier to work on my Japanese instead of communicate with people in English. If you consider a full-time position, fluent Japanese is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open-mined to foreign researchers. Say things earlier and more explicitly if you want to correct things or change directions.
