Pros

With global footprints in Asia, North America and Europe, engineers have a chance to travel and implement their projects accross the company on a financially healthy periods and expose to different cultures.

Cons

1) During good times, senior managers and above travel at their own discretion usually 3-4 times in a quarter. Thus, the budget for hands on engineers are cut down.

2) Over the years, there is no positive earnings made on a fiscal year. You can see positive earnings on a certain quarters but at the end of the year, it's gonna be miracle if you see one.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be very cautious on travel budget.

    Pros

    Was able to learn a lot and have many opportunities for career movement. Pay in the Semiconductor industry is typically very good.

    Cons

    Semiconductor is rough industry. Company has a bit of a chew you up and spit you out attitude - don't really care about people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is getting more and more political. Gurard against this or you won't get the very best from people.
