    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Boutique experience, not so high pressured.
    -Decent pay
    -Good package: healthcare, pension, holiday and other benefits

    Cons

    -Political, with superficial camaraderie. Very much dependent on the desk of employment.
    -Poor HR processes, with little support and professionalism
    -Slow in development with severe growing pains
    -Revenue generating departments are very skewed. Not able to develop into new markets.
    -Mis-match of senior management priorities and implementation when priorities are filtered down to staff.
    -Too focused on hiring new and highly paid management staff, as opposed to concentrating to developing existing workforce. This is disruptive to work culture as well as acting as severe drain on limited resources.

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Intern program was small, but extremely helpful, had a one week in class training and then we could rotate throughout the different parts of the company during our time there.

    Cons

    It is a rather small firm, so it was hard to develop a comprehensive understanding however the in class training compensated for that.

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is fruits every Tuesday and Thursday. Dress down every Friday and during the summer.

    Cons

    What every US made during the year are either cover other regions loss or pay them a huge amount for the un-response support and services

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for the good of the company and don't let the international structure take over a well established company


  5. "very unsteady, very political, very London/Japan dominated"

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small size feel is nice. There were some but people and good teamwork.

    Cons

    High turn-over on every level, voluntary and involuntary. Bloated international corporate governance superstructure is costly and mostly political. Advancement possibilities are limited.

    I worked at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small, "start-up" feel; not a lot of red tape; minimal compliance supervision

    Cons

    Compensation well under the industry average. HR is more or less a placeholder. Growth in spurts, not done prudently, not consistent over time. In particular, 1st year analysts get screwed (or a free ride) due to fixed bonus ranges with varying hours and degrees of responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize the workload analysts receive. Make compensation tied to junior-level output and hours on the desk, not the performance of senior personnel.

    Pros

    This is the execution arm of MUFG/BTMU, big dreams with a small pipeline

    Cons

    Hamstrung at the Japanese holding entity with regulators and controls from both sides of the Pacific. Europe holds outsized influence but marginal revenue
    risk and finance woefully underfunded

    Advice to Management

    Merge with the commercial bank, no need to support a separate corporate structure without the independence

    Pros

    A very focused and energetic group of employees. There is a great atmosphere of teamwork. Everyone is working for a common goal.

    There are no real cons. This is a bank that has a very strong vision for the future. There goals are very clear. The bank is expanding globally.

    Pros

    used to be flat management, flexibility to use technologies you like.

    Cons

    tedious work everyday.
    crazy business users.
    no respect to employee's contribution
    too many turn over on both IT and Business sides
    applications are replaced with systems in London office, which has very odd, bad designed system and full of political playing.
    London office kept losing money and not stable.

    Advice to Management

    London and Japan office dominant everything, you should fight for your right on behalf of people in NY office.
