    I worked at SMBC Capital Markets (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very very good health insurance and SMBC picks up virtually the entire cost. There's both a 401k with march and a defined benefit plan. Generous paid time off. On site flu shots and wellness programs. Fantastic location if you commute to Grand Central.

    Cons

    A lot of "dead wood" - employees who have become quite complacent but likely won't ever be fired because of the very loyal
    Japanese culture. There are some great members of management but most of the new talent comes in and leaves after 2-3 years. Some of the technology is outdated but that seems to have been improving.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to fire people who don't perform. Pay the newer talented employees more to keep them from leaving.
