      Pros

      Good for building up and testing your perseverance. Managers do not really value good work-life balance, but for Japanese employees, work is more important. Compensation is surprisingly competitive. Very strong principals.

      Cons

      You are first a Rakuten employee, and then a human being. No clear career progression provided by top management.
