    Trust your junior management more.

    I worked at DENSO America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Pay is decent for area until you top out, then there are only nickel and dime increases. Work areas are expected to be kept clean and safety is a priority.

    Cons

    6-7 day work week-low morale because of this
    Management doesn't care you never see your family
    Pay stagnant once you top out-no raises regardless of how hard you work
    Limited advancement opportunities
    Have to use your "vacation" days to get weekends off

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees. Actually listen to them.
