    Better work elsewhere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsValues family life.
    Got to know nice colleagues.

    ConsNo career advancement.
    Company is not doing well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nice to start, but enough in few years

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Kokubunji (Japan)

    ProsIt'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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Logic Design Engineer

    Logic Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsSlightly 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrong 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
