    I worked at Miyamoto International full-time

    Pros

    Flexible, some exciting projects, challenging roles

    Cons

    The entire international effort established at Miyamoto has one purpose: photo ops for the CEO for promo and ego-boosting material. There were zero opportunities for project ownership. You will never be able to identify, lead, or complete a project of your own. I was actually told I would never be able to seek, find, initiate, or bring to completion my own projects. "The CEO will always be the one to give the final presentation...

    Advice to Management

    Let go. Stop insisting on putting yourself in the middle. Praise and promote your workers and the organization will go far.

    I have been working at Miyamoto International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great international exposure, multiple learning opportunities, flexibility of schedule and general understanding about the need for flexibility, collaborative work environment, and growth oriented

    Cons

    Growth oriented with associated growing pains, changes--good and bad, not a place for rigid, perfectionist, and task oriented people, young--but not immature staff

    Advice to Management

    Move at a faster pace to define individual identities of the offices, or consolidate the purpose and mission

    I worked at Miyamoto International full-time

    Pros

    Interesting and international projects to work on. Focus of company is on earthquake resilience internationally and in the US. Some very bright and friendly people in the company. Good health benefits. Agree with the mission of the company.

    Cons

    Top leadership decisions is questionable. Number one goal of company is to make the CEO look like the 'earthquake savior of the world' - period. Most trips to earthquake disaster zones are really only photo opportunities for press releases with very little, if any, positive affect on the survivors. Claim they are experts, but in reality many time are figuring things out for the first time when it happens (which isn't...

    Advice to Management

    Top Management knows what needs to happen, but they are butting heads with the CEO who is not willing to budge (feel bad for some of them). But in any case, please don't bring the CEO's personal relationships into the company's leadership structure. That is just disastrous and drives away good employees.
