    I have been working at Advantest full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very interesting mix of hard and software tasks. Coworkers are very nice, in Europe very open and friendly to each other. People managers are good, managers above are mostly non visible to engineers.

    Cons

    Very disappointing salaries, below industry average. Only manager salaries are above average. High demands but low bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the salaries can't be improved, one should consider to review other possible benefits, like better working environment conditions etc.
