    I have been working at SoftBank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is changing fast and you can experience many opportunities to have exciting tasks.

    Cons

    The company is trying to improve work/life balance but I think it depends on department or team on job tasks against the moving fast culture.
