Pros

You get a chance to do some really interesting things, globally

Cons

A glass ceiling will stop you from moving upward in the company, it's really difficult to move up, if you're not a Japanese national.

Advice to Management

Should start valuing diversity if you guys want to be successful abroad...

    Pros

    Talented team of resources supporting various departments. IT/ERP application has been leveraged fully to automate process as much as possible. A nice and decent company to work for. As an outside contractor reaching the client team even though they are remotely located was never a problem. A rule book following culture.

    Cons

    Most of the planning for IT is done in adhoc basis. New versions of application and fuller utilization of all features of various tools was not done consistently.

    Advice to Management

    None

  2. A strong domestic Japanese company....nothing else
