IT Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 2, 2018
My time at Japan society was great. My boss was helpful, knowledgeable, and a good teacher. I have no complaints. From fixing friends and families devices, I was able to challenge my IT skills in the real world.

Some nice people, but overall poorly run and disunified
Gallery Administrator (temp) (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 23, 2017
I only temped her for a couple of months and was happy within my particular department. However there were many interpersonal issues within some of the other departments, and the executive leadership did not seem to do much to unite all staff and make it feel like a unified working environment. Poor compensation, but apparently good benefits.

I had the chance to work on many interesting projects in my time. As someone learning/practicing Japanese, it was great to incorporate it into my work and know there were reliable sources around to help verify and encourage it. The office culture is quiet and conducive to productivity.
Pros
