    I worked at Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Near the Grand Central Station

    Cons

    A candidate have to wait for 6 month for become a full time employee. Other Japanese banks are 3 month.

    Low salary than average

    the Japanese expiates look down the local staff like the second class; specially for women. They brought old Japanese culture!
    This company was filed suits in sexual harassment in the past, but was settled out of court,

    Advice to Management

    Japanese expatriates should be study English conversation.
    The local women is not an outlet of expatriate:s stress!
