    Pros

    Hard working people in all departments. Great internship program, well planned by HR balancing general intern activities (field trips etc.) with letting you do work for your specific department.

    Cons

    Big age gap. Some of the people at NEC have been working here for a long time so they get comfortable with old processes and don't want change.

    I worked at NEC Corporation of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the corporate employees are good people, they provide a good salary, with good benefits, and have a civic-minded corporate culture.

    Cons

    Too much over-sight from NEC Japan. If they don't meet the goals NEC/J sets for them, the fastest way to make the numbers is to lay off people. Once the numbers are met, they re-fill the positions they just emptied. Dumb.
