    I worked at OMRON Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Omron software team is easily the most put together department within the organization. The software management team has grown organically through the company. This means they know the highs and lows of being software engineer and willing to make the improvements where needed. Also shows that you can grow within the department. When starting, they will take the time to train and onboard you within their process,... as well as provide to a resource to oversee your transition. Omron provides the tools for each individual to perform the tasks, so there is no worrying about wasting time with setups. The software team has a mature process to help manage projects and easily transition between projects. Omron allows there engineers to be involved in all aspects of the design life cycle so you are boxed into perform one task for the rest of your career. They are a growing company that is always winning new advanced technology business. Usually there involves travel when required to handle customer interactions. The work/life balance is great! The culture is positive and coworkers are willing to go out after work.

    Cons

    1) Benefits - No bonuses. There is "profit sharing" but rarely occurs. 2) Other departments are less process oriented so documentation can be weak at times 3) Senior management team seems disconnected for rest of company 4) Company view itself as a manufacturer instead of design and development

    Advice to Management

    More transparency

    I have been working at OMRON Corporation

    Pros

    Large stable company. Decent benefits. OK work / life balance (gets very busy at times but not constantly asked to work 60+ hours) People are generally positive.

    Cons

    Benefits are not allocated equally (depends who you're connected with) These types of activities are written into the policy i.e. at management discretion. Some managers get offices others don't. Doing a good job is not enough at Omron, you must constantly be marketing yourself and being political. Very political atmosphere and culture.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at OMRON Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good place to develop skills. Colleagues are quite pleasant. Company, in general, is supportive of employee's work-life balance and emergencies so long as you are not on critical path. Very stable employment for many positions. Good insurance packages.

    Cons

    Oppressive upper management. Almost 100% turnover of software group in two years (engineers, not management). Excessive and meaningless process overhead that does not improve the safety, reliability, or efficacy of Omron products. Many employees have not had a raise in more than ten years. Salaries are low, about 75% of market rates in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your lower-level R&D people with more respect. If you don't, now that the job market has improved, you may find yourself without an R&D department at all.

    I worked at OMRON Corporation for less than a year

    Pros

    Great learning experience, good work culture and work-life balance. Co-workers great to get along with.

    Cons

    Unpaid internship, low pay + security moving into a contract role. Makes sense since it's largely a sales office.

    Advice to Management

    Re-think strategy with contract/intern engineers - offering more security to young talent would make the investment into their training more worthwhile.

    I worked at OMRON Corporation

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable team. Good work-life balance, good range of products, workshop for testing and a lot to learn. Suitable for someone who loves to learn something new everyday.

    Cons

    Lacks career opportunities, maybe because the team is not very big. It would be helpful if continuous training is provided for career growth. Overall an excellent company to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good and remains in constant touch with the employees via promotional emails and emails about current events held at Omron.
