    I worked at DENSO as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    DENSO does value its employees as a person by promoting safety and and as a contributor by taking each employees input under consideration. Although at times the employees can feel overwhelmed and overworked, there are many opportunities and work that needs to get done there.
    DENSO is a fairly typical manufacturing plant with many different types of manufacturing to offer, and they do promote you to specialize in a specific area.

    Cons

    Many people at DENSO get frustrated under stressful conditions to fairly unproductive levels. Newer projects always have to go through a lot of scrutiny and pessimism. However, the older employees do not seem to stress as much during difficult times because they have been through many tough cycles and know that they will bounce back.

    I have been working at DENSO

    Pros

    Good people in skilled trades.......Used to be more before they were ran out.

    Cons

    The previous person is out of touch. They do not value their employees. There are many opportunities but only if you are willing to suck your way there. People are overworked because management abuses them until they finally quit and that leaves less people to do the job. I have been involved in making improvements but got in trouble for doing so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How's the new Hyundai business working out for us? Perfect example of MISMANAGEMENT!!!!
    Instead of missing trucks we are missing planes!!!!
    Way to start out new business with a new customer. Try to get our foot in the door for new business and mismanagement blows the foot off!!!!
    Management has nobody to blame but themselves.
    For advice. How about we focus on getting a new product around before it goes mass instead of after the fact!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Lots of Work, Company provided tools. Company provided Uniform.

    Cons

    Company Managment doesn't understand Maintenance (Skilled Trades) needs. Compare pay with only Automotive Companies. Maintenance(Skilled Trades) is not tied to Automotive ONLY. Maintenance(Skilled Trades) is only tied to a machine. A Tier 1 company should base pay off of surrounding area. Top Pay should be reached within a short time. Denso has a "Qualification Card". All Skilled Trades are already Qualified!! We don't need Denso Management to tell us that!! We already went thru our Apprenticeship. Denso Management is spreading rumors of a 12 hour shifts to get rid of overtime. Management can't manage their people. So instaed of dealing with the individual, they punish everyone. Send mass email to all, instead of dealing with that individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Qual Card!! Base pay on Surrounding Companies. Make top pay with in a year. Communicate. Stop spreading rumors (Management). Deal with their issues and stop punishing everyone.

    Pros

    Ummmm......whenever I think of one I will add a second review

    Cons

    Condescending managers that create a hostile work environment, whenever a complaint is made to HR, nothing is done about it. Not to mention the sexual harassment and nepotism. The company file on the "troublemakers" is ridiculous but, no action is taken. Whenever an issue occurs you will get a different answer 125% of the time! There is so much drama and there is an apparent lack of resources to do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop enabling the problem(s) and eliminate them!

    I have been working at DENSO full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They employed me full time.

    Cons

    Redneck management (including females). Management that has been there too long should and that is dead weight should be retired. Treat hourly employees poorly. Technical knowledge is poor. Culture is one of 1972. Managers and section leaders talk about other managers and their chain of command poorly. This is NOT a progressive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire if you a dead weight. Don't bad mouth your chain of command (your boss) to your direct reports.

    Pros

    The people at Denso are great to work with. There are plenty of management positions to grow into, and transferring departments is common and easy.

    Cons

    Upper management is distant and relatively unfriendly. Room to grow is capped low due to Japanese executives being brought in.
