After graduating grad school of engineering, I started working at a big Japanese company as a software engineer.
I had worked there for 8 years.
It was severe experience.
I had worked from 9 am to 11 pm almost everyday(!).
In addition, I had worked on Saturday or Sunday sometimes. And I even worked until morning at times.
I wasn’t able to have enough private time.
I thought that it was normal for employees and that I had to work hard.
My bosses yelled at me often. They were so strict.
But this is a peculiar to Japan. It’s special. It’s strange.
Actually I got sick because of stress. So I decided to quit the company and to make up my own business.
I became my own boss. Nobody command me. It’s freedom.
Japanese labor environment is very tough. I want to promote improvement of it on this blog continuously in the future.
And I explained how tough to work in Japanese company in this video. Please check it!
