    I worked at NEC (Japan)

    Pros

    NSP trains newly-hired recruits, which includes Japanese language training. There are also chances for business trips and trainings to Japan. Projects are challenging, where developers can enhance their skills.

    Cons

    NSP projects can become stressful, especially if schedules provided by clients are not negotiable. Modification requests during development period is also common. Poorly planned projects often result to a lot of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    More attention should be given to balance the work and "life" of developers. Career paths should also be considered, especially for those who are not too keen to take on management roles.
