The rumors about working conditions in Japanese corporations have been making the rounds for as long as I can remember. I highly doubt that they are all entirely bogus.

They're pretty normal as far as Japanese corporations go. Japan has the highest suicide rate in the world and most of them are work related. Strange culture.
