      A company that can respond quickly to the voice of society and its employees

      Pros

      Although the company has a 60-year history in Japan, it does not become rigid like most large companies, but is full of venture capitalism. We believe the reason why we are able to continue to change flexibly in line with the times, such as digitalization and globalization, is because we have the flexibility to respond sensitively to the voice of society and our employees and change our strategy boldly as needed. Communication between management and employees is also very active, and depending on their abilities, they are in important positions even at a young age. Personal mission setting and recognition are clear, and career progression is less stressful. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

      Cons

      It's a tough place to work if you can't set your own mission on your own initiative or if you have a weak desire to grow. While there is a high possibility that you will be appointed to important positions at a young age, it is also necessary to have a high level of vision because new missions and speed of change are required.

      Many Opportunities for Growth

      Pros

      The company’s core value, “Bet on Passion” is reflected in management and talent development systems. Employees’ unique ideas and passion to deliver better services for users and clients are always welcomed, and there are many opportunities to improve your skills. This is a unique culture among enterprises in Japan, where top-down management is still mainstream. I believe this unique culture has allowed Recruit Group to grow over 60 years quickly responding to changes in the needs of society and changing its business model flexibly.

      Cons

      On the other hand, it also means if you are not enjoying your job or do not have the will to make progression, it can be a tough place.
