I have been working at Murata Electronics North America full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
pay is pretty on par with the market. The company culture is very stable, minimal politics, and there are numerous people who have been with the company for more than 25 or 30 years. Work life balance depends on you, and how laid back your manager is (we do have a few ball busters here). But i would say in general its very good. Almost no one emails on the weekends or holidays and extra hours are just on travel or conf calls to Japan if you are in a role that does that, not all do that. Also financially we are making record breaking profits, massive cash reserve and we seem to be buying a new company every 8 months.
the good news is minimal politics, the bad news is that there is not much job movement as a result. People do their jobs for 5-10 years on average and promotions/transfers are not easy to come by. With how well we are doing financially, its still hard to come by a promotion, hard to understand that.
Advice to Management
the CEO David Kirk has been doing a great job in reforming this company over the last few years, keep it up. The company could do a better job in helping grow people's careers by creating more movement/promotions in the ranks.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Murata Electronics North America (Irvine, CA) in November 2008.
Very formal, very Japenese culture. Tend to ask personal questions on the interview which is unusual
