    Pros

    While the company's Tokyo headquarter has 200+ employees, the Seattle branch office only has around 5 employees. That means if you are someone who just graduated from school, you will have an opportunity to learn many aspect of their operation, from helping with their accounting records to contract negotiations,, etc.

    No advancement motivation at the office.

    Company sponsored training or advanced education package would be great.
