People were friendly and supportive

Top Management were in-experience, many have VP titles and were not qualified.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The organization needs to be leaner. Salaries needs to be cut by 30% starting with the CEO to the directors levels and enhance the bonus.

    Former Employee - FAE

    I worked at Renesas Electronics America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology in focus products. Top market share in focus products. Low power technology, flash memory, CPU cores and bus architecture expertise. Core business in Japan is very strong and will help outlast downturns in global economy. Excellent responsiveness to disastrous earthquake that shut down fabs and supply chain.

    Cons

    Poor business sense in some cases. Continuous in-fighting due to previous mergers of Mitsubishi, Hitachi, NEC. Lack of balance in decision making among senior management. Lack of technical infrastructure that supports customers broadly. Continuous change of management style including strange edicts that seem authoritarian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change course. The water cooler talk doesn't seem to line up with the news headlines.
    Focus on revenue generating customers.

    Former Employee - Field Applications Engineer

    I worked at Renesas Electronics America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was above average, though I think that had a lot to do with the cons.

    Cons

    Senior management places no value on being pleasant, kind, helpful, or most other positive virtues as long as numbers are met. Consequently sociopaths congregate here since they won't get in trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retention problems suggest poor managers. This company doesn't have warning signs, it has flares and fireworks.
