    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good Facilities in terms of Food, Insurance,(wont say about Parking because its not ok),Sanitisation

    Cons

    For some teams Japan management will tell you when to breathe , when to stand ,where to walk and India management (leadership) are spectators even after knowing the problems they ignore it . CEO meets teams once in a year gives high level lecture which makes no sense and employees cant connect with it because its irrelevant. For some teams their is no future for engineers or even managers. The same work is repeated again and again over years with no growth. Japan teams will think you as paid servant and India Leadership will treat you like step mother. You feel yourself like refugee.
