    I worked at EPCOS as an intern

    Pros

    Great experience, I learned so much within very short period of time, somehow because the manager is giving me everything to me, which was his responsibility

    Cons

    1. The company has strong internal conflicts, there were different parties that will make things hard for you
    2. The location is somehow far away from major city, whole company was running on great cost, little expanding room

    The company is located in New Jersey which can be a bad point if you prefer living in New York City.

    Current Employee - Process Engineer in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at EPCOS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1, You can go home on time no matter what happens.
    2, Used to be a stable and relax place for retirement.

    Cons

    1, Management have serious influence peddling problem. They only use their own people they knew.
    2, No promotion is based on performance.
    3, Some managers and directors are doing extreme micro-management, while some managers are totally in charge of nothing and know nothing.
    4, Extreme bureaucracy
    5, No safety control, a lot of ESH issues happened, almost banned by MOM. Operators and technicians were sent to hospital quite often.
    6, the knowledge level of management is low, the quality control is almost for show only. Process engineers have no understanding of process, equipment engineers are only unable to call vendor, and few technicians are doing their job.
    7, If you are an experiential engineer from other fab, feel sorry to you. No one will listen to you, the only words they say is "we copy from Munich"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1, Please use someone who have semicon industry experience as your managers, engineers and technician. Semicon industry in Singapore is very mature, don’t make a fool of yourself
    2, Do not only care about your own pocket.
