    I worked at NEC Corporation of America (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was empowered to run the business.

    Cons

    Needed better sales team, would work well to actively recruit all year round. Wasn't too sure of the direction of the sales teams.

    Advice to Management

    Good work environment, great opportunities. Hard to keep up a good pace in the event we didn't make numbers, we were instructed to layoff team members. Clients didn't like that as they were the face of NEC.

    Pros

    very flexible working environment and encourage creative thinking to solve the real problems. The managers here are very supportive and have good vision

    Cons

    communication with headquarters in Japan is sometimes very difficult due to culture and language barrier. Need to travel to Japan often if necessary.

    Advice to Management

    understand what is our core value in the company and hope to make a breakthrough to benefit the company as a whole rather than working on single short-term target

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive Wage, Good Benefits, 401K, etc.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership / management team at the mid management level. The level above seemed good but the middle management level was terrible. Close to hostile work environment. Big old boys club and no effective resources to do your job with very little support or help. Very much sink or swim with very little direction or leadership. Treated (not the only one - many stories) very unfairly as a woman. Heard of many previous employees wanting to file law suits. I just wanted out.

    Advice to Management

    Middle Management in some areas of the organization need to be VERY closely looked at. Especially within the SE organization, you have some loose cannons on your hands with harassment (guess which form) written all over it.

    Pros

    NEC has had some really great people working there.

    Cons

    Too many changes, especially in upper management. As soon as you would get comfortable with one leader, he would be let go and a replacement would come in, which means then adjusting to the new leader's style, go to market strategy, comp plan, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a direction and go with it. Stop the revolving door in sales management.

    I worked at NEC Corporation of America full-time

    Pros

    most of the employees that are left have 10 + years tenure so they are very knowledgeable and willing to help. I was a junior member of our department with only 9 years

    Cons

    NEC hires new mgmt. about every 2 years and has changed major software programs every year. They have a layoff every year in April so it is hard for a newer person to learn the job because it changes so often.

    Advice to Management

    stick with what you have and allow it to improve
