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!
