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

    Pros

    Great place to work for. Starting with 20 days off per year!. Pay is great too, and the company takes good care of employees

    Cons

    nothing I can think of, really. I love my job, and would believe that every other company will require the same from engineers. Out of the 5 engineering jobs I had, this is the best one.

    I have been working at DENSO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to gain experience
    Friendly staff, some extremely talented people work here
    High job security
    Recent work-life balance initiatives show that the company has its heart in the right place

    Cons

    Culture and Job Security allow for some employees to out-stay their usefulness.
    Many decisions made based on "concensus" when common sense and expert opinion could deliver much faster action.
    Promotion system is a mystery to even some managers.
    Extreme workloads due to outdated systems, red-tape, lean staffing, and time zones.
    Easy to put more into the company that the company will return to you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop tolerating associates who can't or won't deliver. Address performance and attitude issues. Promote those that are actually doing the work instead of pushing them out by overloading them.
