    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Taipei (Taiwan)

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

    Pros

    - Best Compensation in Taiwan for a software engineer.
    - Smart teammates
    - Work-life balance is getting better

    Cons

    - Software design is constrained by 3GPP specification.
    - You work with your teammates day and night and put a lot of effort to reach a goal, such as data rate or call successful rate, that somebody else not only has already done it before but also put that requirement into specification.
    - Competitive cell phone market, lower profit.
    - Fewer players in the world now, so your career path may be limited to only a few companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be a top telecommunication SoC provider on UE sides, you had better to also be a good provider on BTS sides. A lot of software design and implementation are closely coupled between UE and BTS.
