    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Many opportunities for business travel.

    Cons

    With all the Japanese expats working in the US offices, it can be hard for a non Japanese employee. Most commonly used language is Japanese without any consideration to non-Japanese speakers. Small chance for any career advancement if you are non-Japanese. Also not enough invested in promoting young and bright R&D people. With such a fast changes in technology, they seem to be staying little behind.

    Advice to Management

    This is a global company. Please act like it.
