    Pros

    Nice coworkers (family environment feeling), new(er) strategic executive leadership, overall benefits; The company is going through a transition that is creating an exciting time to be onboard to help move the company to a stronger global presence. I'm learning new things everyday and feel like I'm part of the growing solution(s), not the problem(s).

    Cons

    Multiple change projects going on with short deadline expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on course! The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter.

    Pros

    Nec has some fun and Great colleagues management is pretty hands off and let's you do your job with little supervision

    Cons

    Not much room for growth, most people stick around for many years with very little turn over except for the yearly lay offs

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying people off when times get bad but don't change anything else. Hard to help facilitate change when you are simply trying not to get laid off

    I have been working at NEC Display Solutions of America full-time

    Pros

    The changes in the executive management has brought in some good light back into the company. New and fresh ideas. The expectation of doing things the old way are being replaced with new innovated ideas and processes. There seems to be a lot of hope and expectation of the new management to really take a close look at everything and make it a great company to work for.

    Cons

    A couple more organizational changes need to be made if the company really wants to flourish. These needed changes are holding many people back and the company as a whole from growing. It seems everyone has their own story about this, but no one is in the right position to do anything about it. I hope the new management team recognizes the need for a couple more changes.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the new management team, change is hard but when it is for the best in the long run, it will be well worth the headaches in the end. You have a lot more supporters than you may realize. You are on the right track with your changes. A couple more to go and I can envision the flood gates of possibilities just opening up.

    Pros

    Offer good benefits and bonuses

    Cons

    Upper Management, no advancement, and issues never get resolved unless upper management becomes affected by the problem.

    Pros

    No micro-managing with the department.

    Cons

    Finance Department is a joke - nothing but loud, incongruous nonsense day-in & day-out; Incredibly dis-organized staff couldn't follow deadlines or even follow through on their work. Staff is more concerned about the latest gossip or what is for lunch than the overall work load; those in Middle-Management positions are totally clueless as to how to treat others with respect & dignity. Every day is a cocktail party!!

    Advice to Management

    I would seriously review each and every department within NEC and get rid of the actual dead weight - you have people reporting to work yet they don't do anything.

    Pros

    Comfortable environment with good salary and nice perks, nice area to work in. Great employee discounts, vacations and time off.

    Cons

    Could use a more diverse product line. Not really too much bad to say about. I have really enjoyed my experience and I would recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    New Management coming on board - taking a wait and see attitude. Looking forward to an aggressive approach to sales and competiton

    Pros

    The benefits are really good and the product discount isn't too bad.

    Cons

    The only way to get a promotion is to be a sales rep. There is no sense of compassion or comradery for your coworkers. The order management group gets dumped on constantly and there's no leadership. The whole company lacks any empathy for their workers and could care less about employee retention.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if management actually did things foe the employees and looked out for them. Too many times has management looked the other way while their employee gets completely railroaded or thrown under the bus by another employee.
