    I worked at NTT DoCoMo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get a chance to do some really interesting things, globally

    Cons

    A glass ceiling will stop you from moving upward in the company, it's really difficult to move up, if you're not a Japanese national.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should start valuing diversity if you guys want to be successful abroad...

    I worked at NTT DoCoMo as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Talented team of resources supporting various departments. IT/ERP application has been leveraged fully to automate process as much as possible. A nice and decent company to work for. As an outside contractor reaching the client team even though they are remotely located was never a problem. A rule book following culture.

    Cons

    Most of the planning for IT is done in adhoc basis. New versions of application and fuller utilization of all features of various tools was not done consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at NTT DoCoMo

    Pros

    People there are friendly and open minded. I can discuss my work with my supervisor whenever he has time. Salary is good.

    Cons

    If I were asked to say some downsides of working at NTT DoCoMo USA labs, I would say their research team is not very big and the chances of exchanging ideas with people from similar background are slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NTT DoCoMo is a strong company in the field of telecommunications. I feel proud to have worked there for one summer.

    Overall, it is a very traditional Japanese company that promotes only Japanese...
