    Nice to start, but enough in few years

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Kokubunji (Japan)

    ProsIt's quite interesting that engineers can suggest business/sales strategy based on strong skills of hardware and software with MCU, AP(analog and power), and SoC.

    ConsToo many managers, with no leaderships. It already passed few years from when the company was merged Hitachi, Mitsubishi, and NEC electronics, but, its business structure is not re-constructed yet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementState your business strategy clearly, so that everyone can see better future of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hard game

    Product and Test Engineer (Former Employee)
    Banting, Selangor Darul Ehsan (Malaysia)

    ProsFriendly colleagues ...
    Stable environment so far...
    Ethical and professional people
    As long as follow the procedure and rules it goes well

    ConsPathetic management ....
    Office politics ....
    KPI is not that important you achieve or not achieve your big boss
    have the final say..
    Rigid working environment and non flexible working time
    Less importance to work -life balance ....

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome managers like to micromanage need to improve in this...
    Be more supportive to the employee

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent engineering talent held back by slow-moving management

    Product Engineer (Former Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    Pros- Strong product portfolio
    - A large number of very talented engineers who have a great deal of know-how to pass down to junior employees
    - Nice company culture, generally good atmosphere

    Cons- Too much bureaucracy, the lack of strong leadership, consensus-based decision-making, and risk-averse management styles hold the company back from achieving its full potential
    - Inability to make the really tough decisions in recent years continues to derail efforts to return to profitability

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo survive in a global economy Renesas needs to become much more aggressive and agile.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Everyone is treated as flat, no competence among employers.

    Research Staff Member (Current Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsYou can earn mostly the same amount as others even if your contribution is low.

    ConsResearch/development division may disappear near future.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJapanese work style may not be good for these days, everything needs to be changed similar to global standard...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
