A quick lesson in international politics and Japanese mistrust of US management.

Director (Current Employee)
Irving, TX

I have been working at NEC Corporation of America

Prosexposure to large company politics with an internationally recognized name. Looks good on resume for future job.

ConsJapanese management is terrible and understanding the US market needs and how to motivate a US team. Many missed opportunities due to avoiding risk. A company that strives to break-even will never succeed in tough economic times. It is likely that your boss is less competent for their job than you are.
Too much reliance on Japanese teams overseas to support small US operational teams.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be quick to mistrust the non-Japanese management. Many US management team members have more relevant experience than their Japanese counterparts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
