    I worked at NEC (Japan)

    Pros

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

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at NEC (Japan)

    Pros

    Work life balance, home office

    Cons

    Management refuses all ideas for improvement or change, the personal disagreements between colleagues and departments are more important,than efficiency and profit. Motivation killing atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of change. Without continous improvement and re-thinking of decade old processes this company will never reach its potential.

    I have been working at NEC (Japan) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Recently, they have started to convert many of their research labs into English friendly work-spaces. They don't have specific work attire, you are free to wear what you please. Your goals and dreams will be respected. You're always encouraged to maintain work-life balance.

    Cons

    Depending on the team, you are likely to not have great interactions or work buddies if you are a foreigner in NEC. Lower salaries and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up on the dream of becoming a top company in the world because you ran into a few troubles and losses over the past few years.
