    Most enjoyable job I ever had.

    Office (Former Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsGood pay, benefits, hours and work environment. I was only there for 14 months because I moved away from AZ but I looked forward to going to work each day. The people were great and my job interesting. Of course this was when Mr. Kim was CEO. I do not know how it is there now. I just wanted to give my 2 cents about how I enjoyed the company.

    ConsOnly "challenge I ever encountered was getting my direct supervisor to understand that if my car broke down on the 101, I COULD NOT MAKE IT IN TO WORK! Too far to walk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are people too and not everyone can afford to drive a Lexis - so be somewhat flexible.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Well balanced employer with good benefits and talented workforce

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsI really appreciate the strong management support, benefits package, and the flexibility to work from home if needed. There are a lot of highly educated and diverse people who work here. Ethics are really important at this company.

    ConsIt would be good to have the opportunity to train on more diverse topics such as excel spreadsheet manipulation or detailed review of some of the manufacturing services provided by Amkor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGetting a global workforce on board with corporate initiatives can sometimes be difficult but it always starts at the top and rolls through factory management and so on. Critical to get the entire organization on same page through clear communication at regular intervals. Even detail what certain teams must do to raise the level of performance as a company, accountability is important.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTremendous energy with high value learning opportunity available to those with ambition. Exposure to every major customer and foundry in the world. Opportunity to accelerate your career through interaction with various organizations, business units and factories.

    ConsInternational environment can create a complex multi-national working relationship. It takes desire to engage and openness to allow those you work with engage back.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStructure the enthusiasm to harness and direct best possible outcomes.

    Just a Bigger Mess with New Management

    Director (Current Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsNice Building and Parking Lot.

    ConsNew Management all IDM thinkers (and backgrounds) and don't have basic understanding of OSAT business model. Many VPs with zero to a few reports and one in particular with High School Degree. Everyone has a Director of VP title, but only to keep them around, since no one else would recognize. The good old boys are still in charge of the organization and not the new management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure your pockets are well lined because the real puppet masters in Korea will eventually replace you with more viable minions. The culture is a mess, no focus on change only nice PowerPoint presentation that do not encourage the troops.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The work was good, but management failed to inspire confidence

    Test Engineer (Current Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsWorked on variety of projects and had many opportunities to learn
    Good pay
    Nice building, offices, computers, etc
    Management was flexible regarding work hours and vacation

    ConsThere was lots of turnover in the group because it seemed that executive management didn't seem to value the group. This made it hard for people to feel like their jobs were safe for the long term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo more to show that you appreciate your employees.

    Too much drama. Too many Indians, not enough chiefs!

    SAP Basis Administrator (Former Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsAlways on top of technology

    ConsRefusal to listen to those who know. Too much micro-management

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart listening to your people and their input! Offer incentives in order to give your employees and management team, the willingness to stay with the company. Too many turn-overs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
