Productive and Inspiring

The typical day at work is busy as bee need to touch all task during the day missing a thing will be your lost, what i have learned is time is gold for these company..which requires you dedication in order to achieve your career goal it gives feeling great of your self. The management is very professional, Japanese know how to cultivate, encourage their employees,with your peers it is a great team work no professional jealousy...the hardest part of the job is at times you need to sacrifice your personal time just for the work....it equates with the Japanese motto in life....Japanese are born to work for work not to work in order to live.......enjoyable part of the job....is every day is new learning....and at the end of the project.....those learnings will be applied for the next one....these is accomplished every month the team organization have a team building and at the end of the year the whole company have a yearly gathering....the company establishes good rapport to each and everyone so the end result of the project will be excellent.

Pros

pay salary on time and have good benefits.

Cons

overload with work, time pressured.

Productive workplace with good teamwork

A typical day at work would be morning update meeting, client calls, meeting requests follow up and client visits. I have learned to be a team player and gain knowledge in contracts review and mitigation. Management has been very supportive to the employees. Co-Workers are easy to go along with. this is due to the company activities organised. The hardest part of the the job is to win a contract, reviewing clients contract conditions and mitigating them by offering counter offers or by just negotiating that certain conditions be not included. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a contract or a deal has been closed.

Pros

Company Summer outings, Sports Tournaments, Christmas Parties and Staff Dinners

Cons

sometimes requires extensive overtime works or very long hours.

My First Workplace

I met my first mentor at this workplace. Learned how to communicate with suppliers and subcontractors. My colleagues taught me how to read schedule and pin point the areas that are critical for the project schedule.

Stressful and no life after work balance

The company is good, but the environment makes me feel sick. You may feel the presence of crab mentally. I have learned of being patient specially to work mates that pull you down. The hardest part of my job was, when year end comes, and there is no time for me to sleep because of the due dates/deadlines.

Pros

Friendly Japanese staff

Cons

very very long hours of work

Multinational company with multinational co-employees..exciting

As one of the manager of the company, if it's time for work, you should really focus on your job.When it comes to recreation, after office hour is our bonding moment.The company sponsored me to an advance QS class in London paying my tuition fee.Project turnover in time and in quality...if the quality is rejected...it's another additional expense to the company.

Pros

free weekly representation allowance for govt inspectors, owners representative, etc.

Cons

project base contracts. if no other project is taken, then get separated.
