    - If you like to be verbally harassed
    - No one gets fired so you can behave however you want
    - HR does nothing but process payroll. No feedback is taken seriously

    Cons

    - Unethical management team. Just search the founder's name with rather be shot than work with him. This is a frequent pattern with the founder
    - Search the founder's name along with how he dealt with founder of mobile2win
    - Founder being part of a big lawsuit while at Qwest as he took massive amounts of money from kickbacks from vendors
    - You are expected to be on call 24x365 on both calls and emails

    Wake up NTT and get rid of these people who will only drag you down and hurt your reputation!

    Stay away! The management only knows how to make their boss happy! Bad pay. You have to work in the night and weekend. You will be waken up in the midnight because something was broken.

    Pros

    you are encouraged to come up with solutions to problems you discover. This is a global company and you will meet and work with people from all over the world. NTT has added a lot to our work load and we are always looking for top people. This makes for a growing company that is pretty interesting to work for. The dress code is casual and the quality of your character and work is emphasised over just being there "8 to 6" We have monthly birthday parties with food, and frequent catered events.

    Cons

    It can be hard to determine exactly where the company is intending to go at times. Leadership is fairly non communicative sometimes.
    There are some negative folks that it is best to steer clear from. The company has gone through a lot of changes and it is hard to not adopt a negative outlook. Just beware.
    If you have a hard time self motivating, this is not the place for you. You are responsible for your work product and you'll be held accountable for it.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to know a little more about the long term goals of the organization.
