    I have been working at Mitsui & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Financial benefits, good networking opportunity considering the related companies, and management turnover and stability.

    Cons

    Poor management, expats are in charge just to supervise because they don't trust the local staff, they exclude them using their mother tongue and not english, despite the message of One Mitsui. Women and other nationalities are discriminated against and have lower wages, with no possibility of professional growth and no increase on salary. Huge pay gap between men, women, Japanese and descendants. Salary increase and promotion happens only to who they want, not to who deserves it. Unnecessary executive travel just for weekend and holiday in local countries, which refuse to give the reason for the trip. Many compliance issues, despite attempts to contain these attitudes, and all kinds of harassment being ignored.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Mitsui & Co. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance, good benefits, undemanding job, stable job for life, multicultural

    Cons

    Low pay compared to peers, zero progression, having to deal with at times condescending japanese expats who cannot speak english yet occupy leadership positions because of nationality, this is not a company for you if you are not a japanese. Dealing with their lip service is even more painful. Business model is at risk of being obsolete because the japanese are not nimble and open minded enough to compete globally.

    Management is rotated often from HQ office in Tokyo so organization is constantly changing. Work environment is alienating for non-Japanese. Only HQ staff gets promoted and few opportunities for national staff. Communication between HQ staff and national staff is poor.
