    I worked at NEC (Japan) (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The management team was all very nice. Great job with great hours and benefits.

    Cons

    I found myself looking for work a lot. Things they would give me that they said would take hours I would have done in 45 minutes.

    Pros

    Flexible if you want a life and managers are relaxed. Perhaps it's because they are burned out from working in Japan

    Cons

    No training. No feedback. No information on being a consultant. No focus and many departments don't talk with each other

    Advice to Management

    Give feedback. Plan and try to compete. Follow up and take the lead. Groom underlings and lead by example. If something negative about the company it is best not to tell your subordinates.

    Pros

    Great Training, and great/helpful staff. Management wants you to suceed, if you show them that you're willing to put 110% into the company there is no cap on advancement.

    Cons

    If you are not a self motivator and willing to work as hard as it takes, do not bother applying to this position. Either have both feet in the business or both feet out.

    Advice to Management

    Because self motivation is the name of the game, I am sure that as time progresses being a better judge of character, earlier in the game will help with less wasted time.

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Good people in more than a few areas. Positioned for growth in the future.

    Cons

    Bad experience with a manager. Other than that, it's a great place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Bring your teams along while you plan growth. Hard to keep up with lots of changes all the time.

    Good people, technologies, accessible location.

    Talk honestly, don't lie.
    Discuss casually about essential problems.
