    Pros

    Great environment - friendly employees and beautiful office. Everyone is always approachable willing to help you out in a tough situation.

    Cons

    Management is very secretive and not open about what's really going on. Not very much growth opportunity, even though they will promise you it's coming when it's not.

    Also, no work-life balance. Flexible schedules and working from home was frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront and available to your employees. Instead of focusing on seniority and red-tape, focus on encouraging employees by providing a clear career path. I have seen an increase in turnover over the years.

    Pros

    Good learning opportunities.
    Working environment is good.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay scale. Call centres pay more then what Nomura is paying.
    No growth opportunities. You have to fight for promotions. Your work is not considered at all.
    Useless solutions for problems from management.

    Advice to Management

    Management treats employees as labors. They want to become one of the best player in industry, but not ready to pay a single penny to employees or to spend on systems.
