    Pros

    Management always communicates with you, benefits & pay were decent and company believes in a balance between work & family. If you are looking for a lot of overtime, this company is not for you. I loved working for NEC and would recommend NEC to any of my friends.

    Cons

    I really did not experience any cons while I was working at NEC.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice is, don't stop communicating to your employees and never take away the balance of work & family life. You will end up with a great team that will give you a 100%.

    Pros

    I love the diversity in this company! I had many Japanese, Korean, and Indian friends.
    The facility had a decent gym and great cafeteria with several healthy and not so healthy choices.
    There's a recently finished courtyard for walking, and plenty of space in the parking garage.
    Management was always looking for new improvement projects so there were numerous opportunities to build new skills. They had a large IT department, and I always got the feeling the company was focused on remaining cutting-edge, not reactionary.

    Cons

    While the US executive staff seemed focused and caring, I didn't get the same feeling about the management in Japan. It seemed they didn't always care what allowed the best synergy with their subsidiaries, and they didn't seem interested in changing to a more streamlined yet more insightful reporting tool. So there was a lot of extra work putting the same financial information into different fields and formats. This caused more than a few late nights for the reworks, but definitely not enough to make me want to leave. I would probably still work there if I didn't have to move.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, dedicated employees, great benefits, good facility.

    Cons

    Japanese management turnover, little 'skin in the game' before rotated out. Consistent direction and marketing vision needed.

    Advice to Management

    Establish brand identity for NEC in the U.S. Separate Cisco sales channel under another name...to confusing to be selling a competitor on one hand while promoting NEC on the other. Support the Channel with serious marketing dollars nationally. Bring NEC innovation from Japan and establish reputation for great technology in North America.

    Pros

    There is tremendous opportunity for growth with a company that is well known in Japan, but less known in the US. The products are solid, and management seems to be fairly stable. The benefits package is comparable to other large US companies, with good health plans and matching 401K. General employee morale seems to be positive.

    Cons

    The company is owned by NEC Japan, and foreign leadership & culture is sometimes difficult to understand. There is a long wait for some products, due to lead times from Japanese manufacturing facilities - this causes stress for employees who deal with customers used to quick turnaround from competitors like IBM, HP, and Dell.

    Advice to Management

    Push back more on the leadership from NEC Japan, and strive to do things more targeted at the American market.
