    I worked at Renesas as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A few really nice people

    Cons

    Pay is basically minimum wage for the area. If you want to be micromanaged, scrutinised and watched every minute of the day with zero flexibility this is the place for you. My advice - look elsewhere

    Advice to Management

    Stop hanging out with Kim il sung

    Pros

    Interesting technology
    Global company that is relatively stable
    Mid-level management/workers work like crazy

    Cons

    All decisions made in Japan (very incompetent)
    Fewer and fewer workers asked to do more and more work
    Company has no strategy for success
    Glass ceiling for workers who are not native Japanese

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and make changes quickly at every level. It may already be too late for recovery. You may not go bankrupt, but the alternative is a foundering disaster.
