    I have been working at Renesas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    All about technology - the product is king

    Cons

    Japanese bureaucracy can be stifling. Ignore it!

    Advice to Management

    Connect products with customers! You do it in Japan, you can do it in the rest of the world.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    Large organization, great people and management, strong internal support, good products and road maps, competitive pricing, Employee is perceived as a key element of the company

    Large size organization is slow to make decisions. Most decisions are made in Japan so it is difficult to push new ideas

    Be carefull in the integration process of NEC electronics to not detroy the team spirit already existing within NEC's team

    Pros

    Good Compensation and Retirement Package.
    Can immediately make a mark, most people working there are below average.

    Cons

    Upper Management is very dirty and can stoop to any level.
    As typical of any firm that is not publicly traded here in the USA, your performance, talent and skills count less compared to how well you can play in the office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Try to lead by example. Treat employees with respect, integrity and allow them to express their opinions freely. Change the overall incentives and work culture so that people actually work and not get away with doing the bare minimum
