Engineer III (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsCompetitive pay. If you work hard and put in long hours management will promote you quickly. Else if you just stay in the same department long enough people will quit and you'll be moved up the ladder. Good benefits. Opportunity to travel to Korea and to Japan as a part of your job.

ConsKorean managers and engineers constantly remind everyone about the “superior” Korean work ethic whey they actually just spend most of the day doing power points and reading Korean web pages. Anonymous company surveys are rarely anonymous and your responses are tracked and reflected in your yearly evaluation. Self-evaluations are a joke as your ranking and promotions are decided before they are read.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to fix your company’s morale, start with the HR department. Hire new managers who will protect employees from management retaliation and will encourage open dialog on how to improve the productivity and the yield of the company. Great ideas can come from the top and the bottom of the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
