    Pros

    Area of work is quite unusual. Decent pay. Good for job-seekers who want to work in their core areas.

    Cons

    Extremely unfair interview process. It seemed that either the interviewer is not competent enough or has already decided to go for a particular candidate and the interview is just a sham.

    Advice to Management

    You must have a fairer and transparent interview process to keep accomplished candidates interested in your company. At least try be frank with the candidate regarding why he/she cannot be hired.

    Pros

    Above average compensation in Singapore.
    Standardized engineering methods.
    Plenty of moral boosting activities.
    Production ATE (non-degree holder) can earn satisfying income.
    Core business can be profitable for another 5 years, safe for mid term income consideration.

    Cons

    Operational based mindset in Singapore, talents are not valued.
    Operational-only functionality in Singapore leading to political culture and little chance for personal development.
    Engineer salary is pitiful.
    Low end management is not qualified, and it is selected based on the controlling point of view from higher management rather than capability.

    Advice to Management

    Different mindset in MFG and ENG, politics, and discontinuity in communications will gradually erode the product development cycle. MFG and install are an important feedback source for R&D and ENG, need to be valued.
