    I have been working at DENSO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work life balance at DIAM Southfield is exceptional. This is a great company to start at straight out of college.

    Cons

    Application engineers at DIAM are simply liaisons that just pass information to the OEMs. The pay is low, furthering your education is not acknowledged, and there is not much room for advancement. Expat assignments are encouraged, but have very little rewards. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep talent at DIAM the average pay must increase. 3% raise per year should be bare minimum (assuming the engineers performance is average). 3% covers inflation. Anything more than 3% is a bonus.

    I have been working at DENSO

    Pros

    Good people in skilled trades.......Used to be more before they were ran out.

    Cons

    The previous person is out of touch. They do not value their employees. There are many opportunities but only if you are willing to suck your way there. People are overworked because management abuses them until they finally quit and that leaves less people to do the job. I have been involved in making improvements but got in trouble for doing so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How's the new Hyundai business working out for us? Perfect example of MISMANAGEMENT!!!!
    Instead of missing trucks we are missing planes!!!!
    Way to start out new business with a new customer. Try to get our foot in the door for new business and mismanagement blows the foot off!!!!
    Management has nobody to blame but themselves.
    For advice. How about we focus on getting a new product around before it goes mass instead of after the fact!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Ummmm......whenever I think of one I will add a second review

    Cons

    Condescending managers that create a hostile work environment, whenever a complaint is made to HR, nothing is done about it. Not to mention the sexual harassment and nepotism. The company file on the "troublemakers" is ridiculous but, no action is taken. Whenever an issue occurs you will get a different answer 125% of the time! There is so much drama and there is an apparent lack of resources to do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop enabling the problem(s) and eliminate them!

    I have been working at DENSO full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They employed me full time.

    Cons

    Redneck management (including females). Management that has been there too long should and that is dead weight should be retired. Treat hourly employees poorly. Technical knowledge is poor. Culture is one of 1972. Managers and section leaders talk about other managers and their chain of command poorly. This is NOT a progressive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire if you a dead weight. Don't bad mouth your chain of command (your boss) to your direct reports.

    I worked at DENSO full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    good technical learning experience
    Some trainings were very good

    Cons

    Japanese head have no interest in the problems of employees
    Complete bureaucracy
    All the department heads have their own selfish interests to fulfill rather than moving in the direction of the company's goals.
    Favoritism is a huge problem(just one eg. out of many : Less experienced and less qualified people are promoted over more experienced and qualified persons)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the bureaucratic environment
    Keep employees motivated
    Have fair and transparent promotion process
