I worked at First International Computer
Pros – As a small company, you will have the chance to put your hands on virtually everything that this lab is working on. So you are guaranteed to learn lots of things. The projects can be covering financial/banking software development, embedded systems, system integration, factory supportive software development, technical support scheduling software development, phone operating system development, etc. You name it, the lab is always full of projects from different sources.
Cons – But as you gets older, you can only see your salary growing slowly if luckily, no hope to be promoted to any practically senior position, because the organizational structure is really flat! Don't know if this is good or bad, since people may leave the company before they realize this point. Only those who want to be stable at work without jumping from company to company will find it painful because you want to go up somehow.
Advice to Senior Management – Since it's a subsidy of the bigger company, the power of the manager of this lab is really limited, this is an understandable but sad situation for the employees.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at First International Computer
Pros – If you are enjoy Taiwanese culture, then this is the place for you. Otherwise, it is a real shocker. Major brown nosing with the right person is the key to success. Hail the upper management like gods to earn promotions and raises. Scream loud and being rude to your co-workers to establish yourself as a leader.
I have to give credits to some of the nice and polite people that I had worked with.
Cons – Production line was running during major construction (violation of safety rule).
Only Chinese was spoken during staff meetings.
Body search when exiting the building to ensure nothing is stolen from the company.
Advice to Senior Management – Learn western management style and practice it.
Treat the employees with some respects, non everyone live by the Taiwanese standards.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
