    Pros

    Chunghwa Telecom is the largest ISP in Taiwan, it implies that you can learn and design service in the relatively bigger (but much smaller than AT&T) scope of network. The co-workers here are usually friendly. The work time is generally regular.

    Cons

    The salary is extremely low and the policies of company is redundant and complicated.

    Pros

    Good salary if you're freshman here. Good opportunity to work with some smart people here. Nice working environment and work-life balanced.

    Cons

    Salary grows slowly. Too many meetings for management to make decisions. The average employee's age is more than 40-year-old. Sometimes we have communication generation gap.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward!

    Good for people with family, won't get you rich, but you can live with normal and peace life.

    More and more pressure in the rent year, company EPS is getting lower because of government policy, worry about company future.

    Pros

    1.The largest ISP company in Taiwan, so there are some large-scale programming projects, and you can gain different working experiences compared with other companies.

    2.Non-Exempt Employee in most situations:
    This is the rarely "benefit" for labors in Taiwan.
    If you work overtime accidentally, you have the right to claim overtime wages, but it is impossible to do it in most of the companies in Taiwan.

    Cons

    Like most large companies, bureaucracy and unsuitable regulation or would be the big burdens of this company.
    1.When you are working, you have to make a choice between pursuing greatness or obeying the standard operation procedure of some criteria e.g. ISO

    2.Some of people here just do their jog with lazy attitude, because they are too old to pursue greatness.

    3.It takes a lot of time to do routines e.g. you are asked to be a visitor at a meeting, although maybe it does not concern you a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Reasonable key performance index is the basic requirement of our grass-root level workers.


  11. Most people working here usually have a good work/life balance. But some people have heavy loading.
