Quality

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Long Beach, CA

I have been working at DENSO full-time for more than 10 years

ProsIn the engineering group, managers are usually also engineers. Not someone with a business degree.
Quality is #1.
Employees are used to the best of their capabilities.
Stability

ConsQuality is expensive against innovation.
60-80hrs a week is usually minimum.
Poor performers are not fired and only stagnate climbing slightly
History of promotion on age and seniority over skill

Advice to Senior ManagementLet go or demote poor performers
Promote/acknoledge high performers

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Company that is good at what they do

Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Battle Creek, MI

I worked at DENSO full-time for more than 3 years

ProsInvests in employees through classes at Denso during normal business hours.

ConsAs with most Japanese companies, change is very difficult to push through. Even when the business's environment requires it.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease independence from the Japanese headquarters. Increase engineering level pay to better compete with industry.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Overall a good place to work.

Co-Op Engineer (Former Employee)
Southfield, MI

I worked at DENSO

ProsThey had great pay, I liked the majority of the people that I worked with, and they were pretty flexible if you wanted to move around the company and try different things.

ConsThey expect you to put in a lot of time. I'm not sure how other departments handled it, but engineers would often have to burn the midnight oil.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe only thing I could think of is helping co-ops to get a better idea of the whole project that they are helping with. Sometimes it seems like everything done is rather ineffectual, and it would be nice to know what is going on.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
