Japanese companies have started their “internationalization” since 1960s and a lot of efforts have been made to adapt themselves to the local conditions in Asia. Due to several reasons, however, their efforts have not been highly appreciated by local employees. We conducted questionnaire survey of local employees working for Japanese companies in 1992 in order to grasp local views on the Japanese companies in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Luckily enough, research grant enabled us to conduct the same type of research after fifteen years’ interval in these countries. This paper will pick up Chinese and Taiwanese cases and try to illustrate and explain chronological change of their local middle managers’ views on Japanese companies by focusing on their evaluations of Japanese ways of management, satisfaction with working conditions, comparative evaluation of working conditions, and preference for Japanese companies. Our comparative analysis revealed the fact that Taiwanese middle managers have come to be satisfied with their working conditions in spite of their severer evaluations of Japanese ways of management and working conditions in comparison with Euro-American companies, while Chinese middle managers’ views on Japanese companies became severer in many respects than fifteen years ago. Socio-economic background of these facts will be explored.
