    I worked at ASM Pacific Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Do not retrench staff in downturns
    Give you many chances to pull up your socks
    Clocking hours is as important as work output
    Place high value on length of service

    Cons

    Not a good place to build on your professional skill set and observe best practices found in management text books (but it must be noted the latter are often written by Westerners)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They know.

    Current Employee - Engineer  in  Singapore (Singapore)
    Current Employee - Engineer in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at ASM Pacific Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) Seniors are very helpful and willing to guide young engineers.
    2) Very friendly colleagues.
    3) Good salary increment if work performance is good.

    Cons

    1) Very un-systematic management, with each department team pushing responsibility to one another.
    2) Long working hours.
    3) Projects are always under tight schedule, always need to work over the weekends. (suitable place for workaholics)
    4) Canteen food barely edible.
    5) Not a good place to work when starting a family. Most of the time need to forsake family due to project's tight schedule and pressure by management.
    6) Remuneration is so-so, whereby other companies are offering better.
    7) Very high turn-over rate.
    8) When reach Senior level, there is no more bonus and benefits. Most engineers resigned when reach this level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Provide more external trainings.
    2) Treat subordinates better so that they will stay. Too many talented engineers left the company due to mistreated and unappreciated.
    3) Management needs to be more systematic in delegating tasks, projects and responsibility.
    4) Be more open to ideas and creativities rather than being conservative.
    5) Be a motivator and encourage subordinates positively.
    6) Managers need to undergo management training.
