    I have been working at DENSO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is alright and lots of area discounts, other than that maybe some growth? Depends on your department. Free company gym. I am only here because I don't have a way to get to any other job,

    Cons

    Oh god... Where to start...
    Over time, on a good year expect 1000 a year, that's an extra 20 hours a week almost garuteed.
    Management. Never have I seen so many snakes, will lie to your face like its nothing.
    Many are actually insane. I have been yelled at for doing exactly what my manager told me to do.
    Don't expect any system to work. The idea system is supposed to give money to employees who save the company substancial money. I havebeen waiting 4 and 5 years.
    We hire legitimate mentally deficient people, the underachievers paradise. Our engineers do frequently like to mess up the machines, or take them away and give them back completely broken. Like its been almost a year since their last project began and we still can't turn the robot on.
    Overtime is forced doe, your throat. Pay take 6 years to top out. Expect to be harassed on a daily basis, ive seen stabing frequently and sensor acts like its nothing. Expect no training or help unless it on fire or causing scrap. All lower management are pansies, it took them 4 years to get rid of someone who fell asleep every day then would wake up and leave work for 2 hours and come back just to clock out.

    Advice to Management

    Stop everything you are doing and do a 180.
    Stick to your word, act like people matter.
    Promote off of merit not personal preference and legacy.
