We moved to a new building with a large, bright break room. Several places to eat and shop are within walking distance, including a L.A. Fitness facility. Office isn't crowded. The company has good benefits, a competitive salary. It's a Japanese culture but I don't see that over-emphasized.
The only negative comment I have is the length of commute, but that is a personal thing. No other negatives to mention about the company at this particular time.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Murata Electronics North America (Irvine, CA) in November 2008.
Very formal, very Japenese culture. Tend to ask personal questions on the interview which is unusual
