Ok company. Potential for success is there but always seems to miss the mark.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsSome decent people to work with. IMO the company seems to have some impressive technology services that have the potential to do really well in the market. Great benefits and 401K program that includes company contributions. NEC is making attempts (albeit baby steps) to help employees progress their career within NEC. Career tracking system just implemented that will help hiring managers see internal candidates first before hiring from the outside. Quarterly meetings held to discuss status of the company and employees can directly speak to CEO or ask very frank questions.

ConsVery low morale. The last 5-6 years has been very difficult financially which has resulted in an over worked and under paid workforce. Communication between departments can be lacking. Not all employees held to the same level of accountability and not all employees are rewarded equally. There is no clear company culture and no clear company brand. Many of the employees are not even aware of "what NEC does". IMO this leads to small market presence which leads to more financial difficulties. The saying around here is that NEC stands for Never Ending Change. Someone is always out the door or they are bringing somebody else in to make the company better. CEO changes every 3-4 years and each has a different business philosophy.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork to define the NEC brand and really focus on improving employee morale. Focus on the employees that are strong and reward them while stopping the promotion of individuals that do little to no work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    nightmare

    I worked at NEC Corporation of America full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: I was a virtual employee and did not have to slog away in an office daily. It was the right… Cons: VERY interesting working for pseudo American/Japanese management styles. In reality it appeared the US has no teeth and is a puppet for Japan. It always… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your staff, don't just hear them, listen.
