    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.

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

    Pros

    First of all I must say that the Renesas Bourne End offices were equipped with no expense spared; it was a luxury environment with infinitely height-adjustable desks and a coffee machine that provided everything from a ristretto to a latte macchiato. A superb working environment that I will miss.

    Cons

    We were a originally a team of two.

    My colleage stopped working on our project once she knew she would be leaving.

    I then conducted our project entirely on my own, whilst my colleague billed Renesas for doing her university course work in company time.

    At the end of this time my agent called and told me that the boss, - based in Germany - decided that my efforts were 'not working" for him. He wanted me to be seen in the office more.

    At this point I resigned.

    Advice to Management

    Treet your contractors appropriately, they are not employees.

    I worked at Renesas Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Values family life.
    Got to know nice colleagues.

    Cons

    No career advancement.
    Company is not doing well.

    Advice to Management

    Should change the old management style. There is gap between the top management and the staff working at the ground level. Higher management should think how to motivate and keep staff.

    Use the education system of this company for several years after graduation, and transfer to the other company that has better business conditions.

    Former Employee - Senior Executive in Singapore (Singapore)
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Renesas Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly Co-colleagues. Generally less pressure environment minus the politics

    Cons

    Poor management with no vision and leadership. Most work are passed down to ground staff as there are more general managers and senior managers than engineers. High turnover. No career prospect. Low pay and poor remuneration. Poor benefits. Promotion increment does not commensurate with increase workload. Annual increment at less than 3%. Internal power struggle and politics among management as company go through numerous rounds of merger. Management does not work in corporate interest to improve business but rather overly engaged in ousting one another even if the conflicts resulted in business loss. High risk as company restructure once every six months. Poor leadership as the same business goals and plans have been reiterated years after years.

    Advice to Management

    Remove redundancy in higher management as there are far too many general and senior managers. Unite and work in common interest for the corporate. Improve leadership, do proper business planning, be transparent in promotion evaluation, eliminate favourism, improve engineering capabilities, commit more time to source for business rather than doing domestic coverup with presentations and reports.
