How are the career development opportunities at Recruit Holdings?

Pros

You can get a lot of opportunities to develop yourself if you have good vision or ideas and raise your hand. Age doesn't matter. Your colleagues are very helpful and friendly, too. Here 's not like a typical Japanese company.

Cons

You are not expected to be here until retirement, so you need to have a future vision and plan after leaving the company. The company provides you the chances to learn what you need to know for your future career outside, so it might not be a setback actually.

Advice to Management

For me, a mid-career employee, the company seems to be misunderstood in many ways in the society. It is a good company to be in, so I feel pity that people outside don't understand us correctly. I expect them to speak more about the company to the public.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Recruit Holdings?

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.
