    Pros

    Reasonable work & life balance if you are in the profitable organization.

    Cons

    Investment on R&D activity has been frozen or decreased. No sign of change in next few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to show which direction the company is heading to..

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    State your business strategy clearly, so that everyone can see better future of the company.

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

    Pathetic 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 ManagementAdvice

    Some managers like to micromanage need to improve in this...
    Be more supportive to the employee

    I worked at Renesas Electronics full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    To survive in a global economy Renesas needs to become much more aggressive and agile.

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

    Research/development division may disappear near future.

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