    I have been working at TSMC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

    The 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
