    I have been working at NEC Corporation of America

    Pros

    We have a highly experienced and worldly management team. They have worked at other Japanese subsidiaries, and successfully made them independent of the mothership. The folks they brought on are knowledgeable hard workers. Some higher-level positions get to travel to Japan on a regular basis.

    Cons

    NEC HQ (in Japan) definitely wants to have a share of the large US market. As a result, every few years, NEC HQ brings in a new management team. They try to correct the failings of the previous team, they correct some mistakes, but repeat a lot of the same mistakes, and end up failing for one reason or another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Round after round of senior management is brought into NEC Corp of America, and fail every time. They change everything and continue to fail; what NEC HQ (in Japan) doesn't recognize is that the only consistent thing in every failure is NEC HQ's interference and NEC's products.
