    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.

    Pros

    Work from home, nice salary, mid management team is nice

    Cons

    Business is slowing down considerable. Not much in sales in the last 12 months

    Advice to Management

    When employees leave for whatever reason, new hire employees should be seriuosly considered rather than placing the job responsibilites on others.

    Pros

    Great people and some really dedicated to doing a good job.

    Cons

    Lack of processes, lack of clearly identified responsible parties, many changes at the top, many changes in direction, corporate hides behind voicemail, treats the field like a customer they don't want to deal with, heavy in management.

    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.

    Pros

    Very flat reporting structure, with freedom of action if you are meeting goals. Good general comp packages and excellent benefits, including support for those who get laid off.

    Cons

    Goals and assignments often seem arbitrary, and as others mention there is little relationship between sales and marketing. Upward mobility is limited, particularly if you are not in the corporate office.

    Channel is also a big problem, with a reliance on partners that are outdated and unwilling to sell new product in certain markets. Worst problem overall is a lack of branding coupled with a product development cycle that seems disconnected from future vision.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the field, and do a better job of understanding the movement of your key verticals. Get the word out, and don't let individual customers "drive the bus" on product. In short, stop flailing and create focus.
