    Pros

    exposure to large company politics with an internationally recognized name. Looks good on resume for future job.

    Cons

    Japanese management is terrible and understanding the US market needs and how to motivate a US team. Many missed opportunities due to avoiding risk. A company that strives to break-even will never succeed in tough economic times. It is likely that your boss is less competent for their job than you are.
    Too much reliance on Japanese teams overseas to support small US operational teams.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be quick to mistrust the non-Japanese management. Many US management team members have more relevant experience than their Japanese counterparts.

    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.
