    Pros

    Unique and compelling Brand and some of the hardest working people in the industry.

    Cons

    They tend to spend more on innovation than on Marketing.

    Advice to Management

    When cutting cost, consider keeping critical functions rather than simply reducing payroll.

    I worked at NEC Corporation of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, good people, reasonable hours, good benefits. I was fortunate enough to have wonderful managers throughout my 15 year career there. I was given many opportunities to work in different positions and was allowed to work a reduced (30 hour) schedule my last 3 years there.

    Cons

    Not much room for promotion, company earnings very unstable so constant threat of layoffs. Raises were rare as were bonuses.

    Pros

    There is no cap on the amount of money you can make as a salesperson.

    Cons

    The telecom industry is mature and NEC has not re-invented itself. Recurrent layoffs has become more regular.
