    Former Employee - Office  in  Chandler, AZ
    Former Employee - Office in Chandler, AZ

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Only "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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    Getting 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.

    Pros

    Tremendous 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.

    Cons

    International 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 ManagementAdvice

    Structure the enthusiasm to harness and direct best possible outcomes.

    Just a Bigger Mess with New Management

    Current Employee - Director  in  Chandler, AZ
    Current Employee - Director in Chandler, AZ

    Pros

    Nice Building and Parking Lot.

    Cons

    New 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 ManagementAdvice

    Ensure 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.

    Pros

    Always on top of technology

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start 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.

    Current Employee - Test Engineer  in  Chandler, AZ
    Current Employee - Test Engineer in Chandler, AZ

    Pros

    Worked 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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Do more to show that you appreciate your employees.
