    I have been working at ORIX USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quality people outside of C-suite, which is weak. Challenging environment to have any type of long term career plan.

    Cons

    Senior Management continues to line their pockets at the expense of employees. Ownership still asleep at the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Strategy would be helpful.

    Pros

    Some very high quality employees remaining

    Cons

    Management is clueless from the top down. Human Resources is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a competent CEO and clean house in the C-Suite

    I worked at ORIX USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Consistent on time pay and good location downtown Dallas - sorry these are the only pros when working at ORIX. They don't care about you - only EBITDA

    Cons

    Management has been struggling to get the employee buy in since they made some major overhauls. Looks like they've promoted a manager or 2 that are not ready to be managers.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers or hire smarter managers - treat your employees better - listen to them - stop hiring 'Yes Men'. How about a female executive and HR doesn't count!!

    Pros

    ORIX benefits are decent compared to many alternatives.
    Most of the people I worked with were highly motivated, intelligent and were great to learn from.

    Cons

    After working at ORIX USA for just a modest amount of time (1 bonus cycle) , you realize that the entire place is run for the benefit of just a handful of senior executives (even despite being majority owned by the Japanese). The senior executives are more concerned with traveling on their private jets than managing risk. They also had no problem laying all the blame (losses) off on underlings, despite being primarily responsible for the investment decisions made at the firm. At the end of the day, many of the most competent individuals lost their jobs, so that the incompetent senior executives could keep their own.

    Advice to Management

    The Japanese need to get rid of just about every executive left at the firm. Among the ones left, it has become an old boys club that will add no long-term value to the organization, but will succeed in lining their own pockets and continuing to support their extravagant lifestyles.

    Pros

    met very good co-workers
    have decent health and 401K benefits
    young and vibrant employees
    if you like financial services, there are a lot of different choices in that area

    Cons

    too much face time required
    difficult to achieve promotion
    lack of training
    boys' club
    terrible offices
    rarely gave perks like free food or drink

    Advice to Management

    Jim doesn't make himself known to employees. He should act more like a leader. Good reviews don't necessarily translate into promotions/raises. Management can be somewhat egotistical and oblivious to the reality of employees' lives.

    I worked at ORIX USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, good bonuses depending on your top boss, good and smart non manager employees who do the work. Good C-Suite level for the most part.

    Cons

    They promote people based on their credentials instead of their abilities, which makes for insecure and poor managers.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the non-manager employees because those are the employees who do the actual work. Let the employees rate their manager instead of just assuming the managers are good at managing.
