Best IC design house in Taiwan, but you also need to work very hard.

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Hsin-chu (Taiwan)
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Hsin-chu (Taiwan)

I have been working at MediaTek full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The payment is relatively better than other Taiwan IC design houses'. But it is not as good as what is expected from the job market.

Cons

Very long working time. And you need to take care a lot of stuffs which should not be owned by your position.

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

    Pros

    Here you can co-work with the best people in Taiwan. Every task in MTK is always the best solution at that time, and the future improvement plan follows right after each product reaches MP. Everyone here works very hard. Very high pay, even better than US engineer offer.

    Cons

    Working hours are very long. Sometimes you can hardly find your free time everyday. Working from 9AM to 11PM could be ordinary before MP of critical products. Everyone here should be willing to sacrifice life quality for the achievement of Mediatek or money...
    Due to heavy work load, it could be hard to find chances of job rotations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work load should be carefully balanced, not only among a team but also between teams. Job rotation request of engineers should be accepted if the manpower permits.

    Pros

    Hard-working engineers and with good execution.

    Cons

    1. Focus on short term objectives mostly.
    2. No good understanding of system view.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Giving the company scale, it is better off to have dedicated & proper teams set sights on longer term development.
