    Pros

    the compensation is decent, both financial and time off. The bonus program is based on performance and there are bonuses twice a year.

    Cons

    Independent work is impossible. All project decisions are driven from their head quarter in Taiwan. Accomplishing anything requires a significant amount of time spent in late night conference calls and travel to Taiwan.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for local projects and decouple these projects from headquarters

    Pros

    Huge bonuses. Focused company. The Taiwanese (HQ) management is excellent. Number one in every market they play in. Aggressive and successful.

    Cons

    Commitment to US sites is questionable. Many engineers in HQ are not interested in working with us. No opportunity for career advancement as all new hires are supposed to be industry veterans (~25 years of experience). Local issues with morale, attrition, staleness of ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Need a vision that shows value to company.
