Pros & Cons

  • The best part of working at NEC would definitely be the people. Everyone I have interacted with as of yet have been extremely friendly and supportive of any endeavour I undertake, forming an ideal environment for further learning and personal development.
  • Through the graduate rotations I have gained experience that has been extremely beneficial when applying for internal opportunities. This experience has provided me a foundation which in turn allowed me to succeed in being accepted to a permanent internal position.
  • Rewards and Benefits Program
  • NEC pushes inclusivity through no hiring bias, work culture diversity training and fundraising/volunteering support.
  • The company runs a program that incorporates a number of different charity works.
  • I have to try and censor as much as I can when I talk about my job (due to the nature of the clients we support). It's hard at first but I got used to it.
  • Too much remote working (due to COVID) was done which was very limiting in the experience.
  • You don’t always get to choose which department you are most interested in. You might end up on a rotation or department that you may not like. Despite this limitation, this does however, provide the opportunity to challenge yourself, push you out of your comfort zone and will help you to learn new skills.
  • Learning curve is quite steep in the early stage of the program, however I am supported by the team.

Satisfaction
Through the graduate program and even in my current role, I am learning new things every day about business and technology of which I would not have had the opportunity if not for NEC. Within the span of a year I have been exposed to a variety of tasks including virtual machine and application deployment , participated in client facing meetings, designing interactive documentation for a new product line and application testing. Even in my current role, I am learning about the backend systems of our products and performing diagnostics of client systems and completing client requests.
