    I worked at Sumitomo Mitsui 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!

    Pros

    The company gives you ample opportunity to prove that you can be a true asset to the team.

    Cons

    HIGHLY bureaucratic, stuck in old times. Its 2015, although the company seems to be showing improvement into the new century, they are very much stuck in their old ways. The company uses a highly antiquated system of hierarchy which at times can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Reassess this highly hierarchical status for one that is more relaxed
