Current Employee - Sales in Irving, TX
Current Employee - Sales in Irving, TX

I have been working at NEC Corporation of America full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Extraordinary benefits and comp package
Flexible Work Schedule
"It takes a village" Mentality among most

Cons

No upward path
Backwards protective Japanese influence on Domestic Management
Youthful exuberance is almost considered a negative trait among the aging management teams

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider the possibility that 30'somethings have an enormous potential given they've been groomed, acclimated and in many cases, drove the innovation you now market, sell, and deploy. Develop and Define a differentiator, or be satisfied with just being another VAR. Otherwise, quit trying to pick which one. The constant identity crisis is unflattering, and kills morale.

    I worked at NEC Corporation of America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The non-telephony business had been doing very well until 2012 but direction changes have had a significant impact.

    Cons

    The company seems to be willing to throw away significant opportunities in emerging IT markets to focus more on their core 'big iron' PBXs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to separate the company into "Phone" and "Non Phone", go ahead! If you want to keep one cohesive company, that's great! But please pick one or the other and stick with it for awhile!

    Embrace Business Strategy as applicable in American context - not Japanese context.
