I have been working at NTT

Pros

If you are interested in Japanese or Japan, it's a great place to work.

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better pay people based on their skills rather than how long they worked in the company..

    I have been working at NTT full-time for 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

    I worked at NTT full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Stable employer with good values and work life balance. Compensation is above average.Suits the salaried man with long term tolerance for ambiguity.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in views and too many long term employees who cannot go anywhere else. Hence a sense of negativity and dis-empowered thinking prevails. Management is also exclusively Japanese and changes often causing oscillating policies. Not a place if you are the upwardly mobile sort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase diversity and broaden thinking. Learning good English may be a place to start.
