    I have been working at DENSO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Denso has a great work environment everyone is super friendly.

    Cons

    When it comes to making changes that will benefit the company they take a long time to implement. There is also a lot of pressure to use Japanese companies when their American or German counterparts may be cheaper and more reliable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to fresh Ideas. New insight can have a dramatic effect on productivity.


  2. "Team leader"

    Pros

    Benefits are good especially on site clinics. Gym and cafeteria available. Can move around easily between divisions. Major growth. Clean & temperature controlled.

    Cons

    Top heavy. 80 hours per week. Culture is backwards. Nepotism is the name of the game. Safety is laughable. Revolving door because pay is below standard. Managers will lie to face. Extremely unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Check managers ethics

    I have been working at DENSO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hard working team based environment. Plenty of over time available most of the year.

    Cons

    Just like with any full time job, not a lot of time left for family. Full time positions for 1st shift are only available after 5 years of work. So I'm stuck in a dead end position.

    Advice to Management

    Stay humble and down to Earth. Don't let the fact you're junior management go to your head.

    Both the pay and stability are good here. You also tend to have very good management in your immediate team.

    Pros

    Denso provides great benefits ,great pay and advancement for men.

    Cons

    Some of Denso team leaders at the Battle Creek plant show poor leadership skills ,favoritism and mostly don't care about the quality of the parts . My personal experience at Denso is a living hell day in day out no matter how many times you go to upper management nothing is done to take care of problem for long term. As a female at Denso I'm over looked and treated less, my qualifications are higher then anyone on my team and still nothing .

    Advice to Management

    Start taking complaints more serious and start meeting with employees to get feedback on how things are going on there teams. Inforce company policy's
