    I worked at NEC Electronics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There were many talented, dedicated people at the company. The physical atmosphere was nice and everyone was well equipped with the tools to perform their jobs. The corporate culture was poised and non-volatile.

    Cons

    NEC does a reorg nearly every year. This makes the work environment very unstable as their is very little permanancy. Often the re-org decisions are made in Japan which means your personal contributions, etc. may never even be considered in the decisions. One of the biggest challenges in working at NEC Electronics, America, is that the big decisions all come from Japan and they are not very savvy on how to be successful doing business with Western companies.

    I worked at NEC Electronics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Diverse workforce; benefits/salary are better than average; decent internal opportunities to meet co-workers; flexible for those whose responsibilities are not clock-driven

    Cons

    Japanese-owned and ALL decisions are made by/through Japan, focus is on maximizing profit (or minimizing losses) for Corporate; little opportunity to advance in some areas, lifers who have maxed out their potential tend to hang on, and the company is hesitant to remove them
