    Pros

    Really great technology. Seriously interesting. There is some amazing technology and equipment and I P. I would love to work there again.

    Cons

    Most of manufacturing is non-USA based. If your job can be off shored it will. Very high turnover in a downturn. Could be a stressful job if you need need the cash.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be calm. If possible.

    I worked at Kulicke and Soffa full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits & starting salary. Pockets of excellence exists. Good people exists within the organization.

    Cons

    Undergoing change and thus can be disorganized. Good people who keep the company going are not recognized, bad people who tears the organization internally gets all the promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify & keep the truly passionate employees who can help bring the company to the next level. Understand what's going on on the ground. People matters.

  6.  

    Good pay, Good people, but bad hiring practice due to cyclical nature of its business.

    I have been working at Kulicke and Soffa as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    When production is high, there is a lot of work and OT hours and pay is good. 3rd Shift is especially good, with plenty of allowance, friendly staff and relaxed working environment. Recommended to work for OT and some fast income within 6 months.

    Cons

    Day shift earns considerably lesser. If you are not a permanent staff, the cyclical nature of this company will render you jobless by the 4th quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe there can be some improvements to be made about the hiring practice. I'm sure workers do not mind lower wages when there is low production rate.
