    I worked at Renesas Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary is competitive. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    This is very challenging place to work. Very dysfunctional. All efforts are made overly-complicated and unproductive by being a Japan-owned company. You will try to make a difference within your first few months but quickly realize you need to assimilate into the desensitized, complacent work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Break away from the restrictions mandated overseas. Maintain a local management team, get CNN off the TVs and try to increase the miserable morale.
