    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.

    Pros

    None - favourites in middle management receiving perks and the rest treated like dirt. Obsessed with hierarchy regardless of any demonstrable IT skills

    Cons

    Disgusting bullying culture and very little obvious talent at management or director level. Offer good employment terms at start but then immediately renege on all promises.

    Grow up and employ professional management that actually want to get off their arses and do something!
