    I worked at NEC (Japan) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I got paid slightly above average wages as I was replacing multiple staff. The team once had 8 people. The final 2 quit and I was left to be the new team of 1 developer.

    Cons

    Forced to take over for a whole development team after everyone quit at the same time. Totally disorganised and inexperienced management team. Expected to train to become an expert in propriety software systems I had no experience in and support top level government clients. Project management lied to clients, human resources were hopeless, my team leader had no experience as a developer and didn't know what we did.... Every process or system had fundamental problems. Even my automated exit interview didn't work. It was an Indian helpdesk dressed up to look like NEC. I was in the Australian branch of NEC Japan. I quit in one month.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking after employees. Replace staff when they quit. Take an interest in the clients and you might keep them. Stop hiring excess staff and making them compete for one job. Make quiet work areas away from noisy staff who've already quit and just don't care. Be honest with people when they start. Use knowledge management. Have some flexibility rather than call people's emergency contact at 9:10am when they are... about to walk in the door.
