Top 20 Attractive Foreign Companies in Japan

This entry was posted by on Saturday, 5 May, 2007 at

On Goo Ranking you can find tons of different ranking lists which are created through surveys sent out to a random panel of around 1,000 Goo users. You can find rankings of everything from “best looking movie star”, “presents girls do not want from their boyfriends”, or “famous movie star that looks suitable to run a cafe” (?)

Anyway, I stumbled upon a ranking that I felt was quite interesting, namely “Top 20 foreign companies I would like to work for” i.e. which are the most attractive foreign employers in Japan (Note: this survey was taken in November 2004).

You can see the list below:

  1. IBM
  2. Microsoft
  3. Apple Computer
  4. NIKE
  5. Louis Vuitton
  6. Intel
  7. Hermes
  8. BMW
  9. Adidas
  10. P&G
  11. Coca-Cola
  12. Nestle
  13. Christian Dior
  14. Dell
  15. American Express
  16. Vodafone
  17. Puma
  18. Oracle
  19. Citibank
  20. Pfizer

Some immediate thoughts that came to mind: The company I work for is not on the list….re-do the survey now and we’ll see. 😉 Anyway, it seems the companies fairly well match what is in the Japanese public’s mind so to speak: computers and luxury brands. I must say I was quite surprised to see Nestle and Pfizer on the list! I guess Pfizer has a reputation of being a good employer here and the pharmaceutical market is quite huge, so that can explain it. But Nestle? Is it because all Japanese love Nescafe? Yep, that must be it. They even have their own Nescafe variant here which is totally disgusting: Nescafe Excella. Darn that is one bland cup of joe! Maybe everything agrees with me and wants to join Nestle’s R&D to change it….?

Anyway, when I was searching for a similar, but more recent, survey I actually found an older one instead. It’s pretty interesting to compare: 1. IBM (stable!), 2. Microsoft (same here), 3. Merrill Lynch (status of finance institutions have decreased?), 4. Citibank (dito), 5. McDonalds (hmmm….no comment), 6. American Family Life Insurance (?), 6. P&G (always had a very strong presence here), 8. Coca-Cola (the Japanese are still lovin’ it), 9. GE (don’t know what happened to them), 10. Apple Computer (big winner!)

    My husband and I are interested in moving to Japan in about 5 years. I am trying to find a job that has branches in Japan, but am not sure if this is the right step to allow us to move there. Do you have any advice on how to go about this process?

    Sorry for being over a month late with replying… If you’re planning for 5 years ahead, then definitely looking for a company that has a branch in Japan is a good plan, I think. You do still of course need to confirm that it is in fact a company who do send people over there, because some companies basically only place the Company Manager there, and the rest are local. So be on a lookout for a company with a good rotation plan.
