I worked at NTT

Pros

well, NTT is a big telco, if i am not wrong, it should be the biggest telco in Asia. Their IP / MPLS coverage is very strong in Asia, and O. k coverage for the U S and Europe region. Able to get some exposure to big projects, on the design, deliverable, and maintenance.

Cons

The culture is very political and unfortunately a bureaucratic approach of working. There is red tapes everywhere. It is very hard to climb the corporate ladder or have the same empowerment. There are many processes involved just to get things done, of which it is really frustrating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the ground level more and be more open to feedbacks

No opinion of CEO

    Japanese culture, hierarchy etc, all the traits commonly seen in Japanese company.

    I have been working at NTT full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Advantage of working with some talented/ down to earth characters, who are unfortunately all being taken for a ride

    The Location. although it is due to change to somewhere cheaper by 2015

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility: little or NO working from home, expect to be monitored on EVERYTHING from what time you come in to how long you spend in the bathroom..

    Handholding: Expect to never use your own initiative, whas the point when you HAVE TO follow all the rules set by above (tokyo)

    VERY japan centric culture - NO compatibility for Europeans. VERY difficult environment and odd work ethic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address employee concerns and issues properly, not just by having a " if you dont like it, then leave" attitude.
    Provide more freedom of ideas and opinions. stop relying on rules and regulations which stops creativity.
    Allow employees to be in charge of their own working structures, provide a more trusting approach

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
