Hi TS,

i am working in a Jap general trading MNC currently.
Base on my exp in my company:
Working hrs: u r expected to come 15 mins earlier than normal working hrs , but u can leave on time if u have finish yr work.
Working culture: all japs work silently but noisy in the email world. likes to bootlick and cover their own kah chng w/o giving much thought for their team members. higher level japs tend to segregate themselves from lower level executives, especially non-japs.
They tend to ask u very exaggeratingly detailed qns.
if u r in sales, u need to know how to drink and do not mind going 'karaoke'
Language: sometimes hard to understand them and vice versa due to language barrier. especially if u need to communicate with Jap HQ office.
