    Pros

    Decent Compensation and good benefits

    Cons

    Management that mico manages
    Count on re-org's one a year. Omron can't seem create a strategy and then execute it.
    High turn over
    Desires employees who march in lock step

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to do their jobs
    Don't set unobtainable goals.
    Loose the micro-management mentality
    Bring in an outside consultant to get the company on track with some sense of direction.
    Follow company policy, not just when it's convenient.

    Pros

    a lot of overtime, sometimes we got maximum 20 hours per week, which gives significant boost to our income.

    Cons

    mismanagement, some favouritism among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    manage it properly, for example 5 million dollar machine was bought only to be used for 4 months, while the revenue not even reach 2 million dollar. How are you going to make money.

    the company has been losing money since 2004.
    It still afloat because of Japanese keep sending additional money every year.

  9.  

    Quite positive. One of the few Japanese companies that really takes care of their employees.

    Pros

    Above average worker benefits in Japan
    It is a company with quite a good reputation. I actually get contacted by recruiters from other companies since I started working here.
    Lots of highly competent and very intelligent coworkers.

    Cons

    It is still old-fashioned in hiring and will only hire recently graduated students from Japanese universities as life-time employees. They do take foreigners if they also graduated from a Japanese university. Not surprisingly most non-Japanese employees here are Chinese.
    The rest are outsourced from other companies. Probably 60% of the total employees are outsourced from other companies.
    Only in rare cases they do hire people in mid-career. The only one I know of is a coworker who was working in a joint research project between Omron and his university. His research led to being hired here after he finished that project and got a PhD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management has done the right decisions so far. This was one of the few Japanese companies that posted profits in 2011.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. Some people are good co-workers. Overall it offers a decent work-life balance. Hours are not out of line.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Seem very out of touch and only focus on 1 or two business areas while neglecting resources to the remaining company. Inconsistent to poor employee communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to improve communication. Believe in the goals that you set and dedicate resources to them. Do not just set goals to have something written on paper that may sound good.
