MUFG is still very much Japanese bank despite wanting to be a global bank.

The Japanese culture is very strong and conservative in this bank. I worked there for 11 year plus and there was not much career progression at all. Management is not an open communication style. It’s also difficult to move internally between departments unless you are Japanese staff. The work life balance is not bad.

Nice people

slow and ineffective management and processes, take very long to get updates on things. Intern pay is decent. Nice people. Interview was very easy and chill

A place of beuracacy

Protocols are more important than substance. There is no urgency in getting things done. Obsession with meetings presentations and reporting. Consensus is important in n decision making.

Depends on your luck on the report manager

Bad culture cos all are have to follow Japanese work culture and Japanese staff requests. If you have a good reporting manager you will be easy to work with. However if you don't have good luck, you will have very difficulty to deal with.


flexy working hour


Too many meetings and reports, all procedures are to be written.

Fun and great learning experience

Fun and great learning experience. Work place culture is good and you are able to try different roles and learn from different managers. Great for employees who are open to learning different things.

Productive workplace

Professional workplace and employees do go off on time after work is done. Recommended workplace to go for if you like routine work and Japanese culture.

Systematic workplace

I have been with the Bank for 13 years and I have grown together with the Bank. Procedures are in place are worksflows are systematic. Most enjoyable part of my job is that I can understand the users and able to provide support when required.

Excellent company with good work and life balance.

MUFG is a excellent company that gives priorities to its employers' overall benefit (health, career improvement, learning and extra curricular training). The management team is also very proactive with the employees and ensures that the best environment is created for all the employees to excel in their job. The best experience for me during my tenor at MUFG was able to communicate with new clients across Asia and develop strong relationship with them.

Typical Old Japanese company

It was hard to adapt their working culture - Japanese working environment. They do not talk and always believe it correct what they are working for. It was difficult to work with them.

Serious workplace

Punctuality and courtesy are basis requirements in a Japanese bank. Knowledge of Japanese language and culture would be good to have in this place. Very structured bank with lots of policies and manuals,

As a contractor you have totally no benefits. It's not a ideal place to work in if you are looking for work life balance..............................

Productive and Fun workplace

My daily task is to call clients to inform on specific information and responsible for packing or adhoc duties. Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ is a Japanese bank and thus being on time for work is fairly important in the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I am able to provide a service to our clients and help to lighten the work load of my team members.

Work life balance but poor management

Good work life balance. Salary and benefits ok. Poor and inefficient management. Very bureaucratic and political. Conservative and inefficient in business decision making.
