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

    Pros

    The pay is decent and the benefits are good. Plus there is tons of overtime available.

    Cons

    some Management will stab you in the back by telling you one thing and doing another. Plus, if you are not qualified for the job, they will still make you train someone who is qualified. Basically, you do not get raise, but train someone else who got the raise and knows nothing about the machine.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advice, but management will not correct it anyways, so why bother!

    Low salary. There is no career growth.

    Value more your employees so that you can lessen the employee turnout.

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

    Pros

    Only reason I could say is money.

    Cons

    No work life balance. They preach innovation but i left because i was threatened, as others were, when presenting an idea. I do not mean a mild threat but an actual "i will get you" quote from a team leader. Went to hr and was told yes, we know about that person but they try to work with others. He had to apoligize...then i was not given opportunity to interview for exact position on different shift. Retalliation?...yes! I found a great job and i do not sue unless i need to. Outdated safety gear also, presented new but was told it cost too much. Items were out of date per OSHA!

    Advice to Management

    Revamp and listen to employees ..more life work balance!!!

    Pros

    Great experience of working at a huge top notch automotive component manufacturer. Opportunity of learning Toyota-Kanban system. Decent salary.

    Cons

    Very slow decision making process. Very bureaucratic. Very unfriendly Japanese employees. Poor management system. Anal retentive corporate culture. Secluded location - if you are looking for some social life in the weekends, you will be incredibly disappointed. It is in Nagoya area - generally speaking, people from there are conservative and are not open for foreign cultures.

    Advice to Management

    The company should dispatch employees with decent English communication ability. There are a lot of communication problems between local employees and Japanese managers because the HQ has been keep dispatching the management level staffs with poor English.
