Learned a lot, but Tokyo management is out of touch
Manager (Current Employee) – Virginia – December 14, 2012
I have learned a great deal here, but there is increasing Tokyo oversight, red tape and approvals + input to product development. And Tokyo / Japanese management can be out of touch with what American business (i.e. customers) want / need. Decision making is via consensus and is slow to happen, causing customer projects and initiatives to be held up and take too long. This is hard to try to explain away to customers who do not understand why PO's to expand their solution take weeks to approve.
Management wants growth, but will not make the necessary investments to support such growth.
good compensation, good job security, flexibility
tokyo oversight and bureaucracy, slow product development
