    Most leaders are not speaking English as first language, and are threatened by the American culture that they do not understand and do not even try to understand.

    I have been working at SoftBank full-time

    Pros

    It is located in Financial district

    Cons

    There are a lot of envious people working here who have temper and additute issue, especially the sales team. The projects never get done because there are no firm decisions. One gang member within the team who is favored makes the decision, and will become enemies with you if you have an opinion. The tech team by any means have the educational experience or the technical background to make decisions. Pepper the robot is a joke, and I don't see it making it through the robot industry.
