Okay Place to Work

Analyst (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at ORIX USA

Prosmet very good co-workers
have decent health and 401K benefits
young and vibrant employees
if you like financial services, there are a lot of different choices in that area

Constoo much face time required
difficult to achieve promotion
lack of training
boys' club
terrible offices
rarely gave perks like free food or drink

Advice to Senior ManagementJim doesn't make himself known to employees. He should act more like a leader. Good reviews don't necessarily translate into promotions/raises. Management can be somewhat egotistical and oblivious to the reality of employees' lives.

Not a bad place to work, but not a place you would spend more than 3 years at before moving on to greener pastures.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at ORIX USA

ProsORIX benefits are decent compared to many alternatives.
Most of the people I worked with were highly motivated, intelligent and were great to learn from.

ConsAfter working at ORIX USA for just a modest amount of time (1 bonus cycle) , you realize that the entire place is run for the benefit of just a handful of senior executives (even despite being majority owned by the Japanese). The senior executives are more concerned with traveling on their private jets than managing risk. They also had no problem laying all the blame (losses) off on underlings, despite being primarily responsible for the investment decisions made at the firm. At the end of the day, many of the most competent individuals lost their jobs, so that the incompetent senior executives could keep their own.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe Japanese need to get rid of just about every executive left at the firm. Among the ones left, it has become an old boys club that will add no long-term value to the organization, but will succeed in lining their own pockets and continuing to support their extravagant lifestyles.

Good place to grow, with nice folks and a balanced work/family life

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ORIX USA

ProsIncluding bonuses, compensation is excellent if you are a high achiever. ORIX is generally good with hours, vacation time, and maternity leave. Frequent acquisitions keep things interesting and usually move ORIX up into higher classes in terms of of pay, perks, and benefits. Some A players, and a lot of nice folks.

ConsWithout bonuses, salaries are sub-par. Bonuses are essentially deferred compensation that you end up working all year to receive, and forfeit if you leave. Corporate identity is fragmented, usually dominated by the most recent acquisition. The emphasis on the bottom-line sometimes results in a decline in quality, perks, and team-building activities. Somehow, despite its better-than-average compensation, ORIX seems cheap. It's a good place to grow until you hit a ceiling, since there is generally low turnover in upper management.

Advice to Senior ManagementModify the "bottom line" approach to emphasize excellence and teamwork. Encourage high performers with more than just an annual cash bonus.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
