    Pros

    Good working location and facilities

    Cons

    Tend to keep contractors a long time before hiring them - keeping costs down, but not thinking about the individual

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are decent. There are still a few very sharp technical people at NTT America - if you hurry you can work with some before they leave.

    Cons

    Large portions of the company are crippled by incompetent managers and poor direction. Most leadership roles are filled from outside and as a consequence: managers have no idea about company/industry history; and employees have little room for advancement. Micro management goes unchecked, nobody knows where the company is heading, goals are circular and based on whatever seems fashionable this week. RIFs and reorgs are frequent and people seem to lose their jobs right before holidays and review/bonus time - surprise!

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are smarter than you. If you listen to them and give them a chance to grow the company may not fall on its face repeatedly.

  6. Great in the past under Japanese mgmt, more American style with U.S. mgmt.

    Pros

    Very competitive salary and great benefits. Good for NOC and telecom engineers needing experience. Training was very good. Great work hours flexibility. Good global network reach. Friendly relations between other work groups was common.

    Cons

    Japanese executives from Japan do not stay in America very long - probably contributing to long term instability. With increasing American management in all levels, there seemed to be more focus on replacing positions with new talent instead of coaching existing staff to better fit company goals.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate company goals to employees clearly and often - tell them what you want them to be within the organization.

    Pros

    The culture of NTT Admerica is ideal for self-motivated individuals. They have a diverse work force. They respect an employee's innate abilities to succeed and adapt as new challenges arise.

    Cons

    NTT America is growing organically and through acquisition which lends itself to growing pains: such as the merging of workforce and systems.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to stay focused on keeping the best of each acquisition, in particular, the systems which have made each team successful. Continue to hire team leads which encourage "Esprit de corps", particularly supporting each other through education and training of your disparate customized processes and systems. IMO this has significantly contributed to your operations success.

    Pros

    Everyone respects each other and the leaders pay close attention to their employees well being. Great benefits and a place to learn new networking technology!

    Cons

    The only challenge is that there are no real structure when it comes to promotion or career growth. People have been working too long and becoming stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Need some challenging projects to keep their employees more engaged and not be stagnant of their growth of learning new things.
