I have been working at Polar Semiconductor

Pros

Even from the start I was able to do as much as I was comfortable with doing, no one tried to hold me back.

Cons

Not well managed overall. Management is overly concerned with saving a buck sometimes rather than doing what is necesary to run a great company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Step back, look at the system as a whole and make the changes needed dispite the cost and the company would flourish.

    Pros

    The benefits for full time employees is great, the only thing that kept here. In addition, the location is very accessible.

    Cons

    Most of the managers have no or little formal education and communication limitations as to dealing with people. They show little or no respect for their subordinates apart from wanting the work to be done. The work hours is 12hrs a day, which kind of make it stressful by itself. There also is a great deal of favoritism in employment, promotion and advancement of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the managers on how to deal with employees, and encourage career advancement based on merit, not just because you know that person. In addition, there should be fairness in hiring people to avoid dominance be certain ethnic groups in some shifts or family relationships.
