    2) Shift work might affect health.
    3) Last but not least, Hsin-chu is a boring city.

    Great company and good pay with fair work load

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Hsin-chu (Taiwan)

    ProsThe following are the good part I feel about the company.
    For the spend rate in TW, 100k USD is a lot here.

    No lay off
    Good pay
    Advance technology
    Diverse Works

    ConsThe work load is very heavy and also very tough, and of course, it is exciting as well.
    However, you won't have personal life here. That is the problem.

    In the upper management part, here is very politic. Upper managers changed all the time.

    Heavy work load
    very politic
