    I worked at Renesas Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have brought in new Sr. Management that are focused on getting the company profitable. At all costs. 18,000 people reduction in Japan. Closing 6 factories and discontinuing the sale of non-profitable products. Sr. Management is now focusing on basic business practices to improve employee performance.

    Cons

    Sr. management will not leave some of the traditional Japanese ways. All employees paid at the same pay (roughly - minor deviation). Also, performance reviews are decided by a committee (in an effort to equalize, but instead you get people weighing in who have no clue about other employees). Early Retirement allows the company to reduce headcount, but it is usually the best people that go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Reduce your employment by removing the lowest performers.
    - Stop micro-managing purchases under 10,000 yen
    - Hire exceptional people to come in and lead across the company, not just at the top!

    Pros

    Values family life.
    Got to know nice colleagues.

    Cons

    No career advancement.
    Company is not doing well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should change the old management style. There is gap between the top management and the staff working at the ground level. Higher management should think how to motivate and keep staff.

    Pros

    It's quite interesting that engineers can suggest business/sales strategy based on strong skills of hardware and software with MCU, AP(analog and power), and SoC.

    Cons

    Too many managers, with no leaderships. It already passed few years from when the company was merged Hitachi, Mitsubishi, and NEC electronics, but, its business structure is not re-constructed yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    State your business strategy clearly, so that everyone can see better future of the company.

    Pros

    Slightly nice work environment with people willing to cooperate. There could be more a lot of challenging and interesting things to do for the younger employees as the downsizing continues.

    Cons

    Changes in management and company structures. You never know when the large layoffs and restructuring will finally come to an end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong marketing and leadership are necessary. They've got to understand no long-term benefit would come unless they take risks although it never means that they could do whatever they want.
