    Pros

    Research position at NTT. Good work environment, very flexible. One can learn knowledge for telecommunications market and earn research skills. Rank doesn't really matter.

    Cons

    Outside research position, most of the things are very conservative so it takes time to put things forward. Overall, relationship with your boss really matters, not your ability.

    Advice to Management

    Although a good company, it is so conservative that it may be difficult for new comers to fit in or change somethings in the system. Company management had better listen voices from various positions and try to make the environment better.

    Pros

    NTT is one of the largest communication companies in the world. Therefore, state-of-the-art research facilities were to be expected. The work culture was fairly laid back as it was a research and development company, and co-workers were intelligible persons always ready to help.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy was quite troublesome. NTT has been around for a while, and their style hasn't changed much. Often, as younger members of teams stand up to state their idea, they are shot down without much interest from the senior members.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the younger members of the team. Some absolutely fantastic ideas come from their fresh perspective.

    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 Management

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

    With limited grown space, not so suitable for young newly gratuated students want to work hard play hard. No grow room for foreigners.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe more open minded, don't set bondoury between foreigners and japanese. Top talent programe is suggested to motivate young talents.
