Amazing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atsugi (Japan)

I have been working at NTT as an intern for less than a year

ProsFantastic experience, learning from the best.

ConsI don't have in mind disadvantages for the company. Only maybe, the fact that when you are employee you might work over hours due to the work culture.

Advanced but not the most engaging.

Researcher (Former Employee)
Yokosuka, Kanagawa (Japan)

I worked at NTT full-time for more than a year

ProsNTT 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

NTT MSC - Shameful Japanese co.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Cyberjaya (Malaysia)

I have been working at NTT full-time for more than a year

ProsIf working under Japanese, able to gain exposure to Japanese working culture and methodology

ConsPoor benefits. Easily 40% below market rate.
Local top mgmt weakest link. Lack leadership, professionalism and competency. Not MNC quality.
Does not invest in employees. Left to figure things out by themselves.
Poor company values. CEO openly having affair with staff and gets special privileges incl promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour local top mgmt is not capable of managing the company.
The working level staff, the backbone of your company will suffer.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good long term employer with a steady revenue stream

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at NTT full-time for more than 8 years

ProsStable employer with good values and work life balance. Compensation is above average.Suits the salaried man with long term tolerance for ambiguity.

ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementIncrease diversity and broaden thinking. Learning good English may be a place to start.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

old fashion japanse company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NTT

Pros- Your work hard will keep you a secure job
- Company has very strong financial status as held by Japanse government

Cons- Good result doesnot mean good evaluation
- local employees have less career opportunity comparing with Japanese ones

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should give equal career oppotunity also to local employees, listen more to their voices.
Sit in one's heart not on one's head, please.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great place for a 2-year postdoc

Postdoctoral Research Associate (Former Employee)

I worked at NTT

ProsGreat place for state-of-the-art research, rich research fields, friendly work environment among colleagues, lots of opportunities for publication/presentation/forum etc., flexible work time, collaboration with other research labs within NTT is possible.

ConsAs a foreigner, you may feel the limitation on your career growth opportunity. Communication in English was not very effective. It turned out that I found it easier to work on my Japanese instead of communicate with people in English. If you consider a full-time position, fluent Japanese is a must.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open-mined to foreign researchers. Say things earlier and more explicitly if you want to correct things or change directions.
