    Pros

    Biggest semiconductor foundry in the world.
    Pride to belong and worked for such a successful company
    "The story of a better pay check" than the average companies
    Lots of money = lots of respect?

    Cons

    Military style management.
    Competitve environment leading to selfishness.
    Severe hierarchy differentiation
    Hard (for me at least) to make loyal or trustworthy friends
    Attitude problems: money runs company's culture
    Double personality: money runs people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hide anymore. Expose the real side of work and money balance.
    Running upfront is awesome but at the cost of sacrifice in real life.

    I have been working at TSMC

    Pros

    The engineers' quality and sense of semiconductor area are very strong and most engineers are proactive and willing to learn new things. It is very comfortable to be a manager or technical leader to lead the project.

    Cons

    The job loading and stress are very high for a manager level to handle a project. The endless job assignments are always coming to your desk, no matter day or night. There is very few time to consider other things, such as family, friends and social relationship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire manager who worked for foreign country for a long time and don't understand the culture of Taiwan and TSMC.
