    Pros

    Good benefits, health insurance, etc. If you're lazy you probably won't be fired. Flexible with vacation and comp time, which you will earn plenty of.

    Cons

    In Athens, management is incredibly short sighted. Everything is first priority so nothing takes priority and it all has to be done right now. Always rushed to finish anything and move on to the next so most are left half done. Incredibly stressful and most specialists I have talked to are looking for a way out. I've heard things in Maryville are different but I can't say for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on long term performance, not short term targets that are easily manipulated. Treat people the way you would expect to be treated and understand that people are your most valuable resource. You don't get the best results out of people, or machines for that matter, by running them 100% capacity 100% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Denso should give more vacation hours and more emergency sick days. Denso overworks their employees with long hours and lots of required overtime,tocompensate Denso should telltheir employees thank you by giveing more than 3 Emergency days per year or sick days.Show that Denso understands and cares or you will lose great emplyees to othercompanies that will

    Pros

    Denso has great benefits and room to grow in the chain of command. The jobs vary and so do the shifts so there are many different areas to work. Denso likes to promote from within.

    Cons

    Biggest con would be that the employees act like they are still in high school. There is a lot of back stabbing and gossip. Also, it seems to be that rules can be bent or broken for some but not others.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate team leaders more often and thouroughly.

  10. My experience with the company has been a roller coaster ride.

    Pros

    The best reason for me working there is the insurance benefits. I have work with the company long enough to earn four weeks of paid vacation.

    Cons

    My biggest challenge is not having the help I need to do my job properly. When the economy was so bad the company let most of our temporary associates go and cut back on hourly associates' hours. The salary associates had to take up the slack. Since then the company has been running with a leaner roster.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to consider how to help team members (esp. Section Leaders and above) work together. Most Section Leaders and above I know fight against other people's ideas. Mostly for spite because they don't like the other person. They should realize that we would all benefit by working together in the same direction instead of pulling against one another. After all, we are on the same team.
