    An intern in process integration team

    Product Investigator (Former Employee) Hsinchu (Taiwan)

    ProsIf you have higher degree from US, you might get better chance for salary and promotion.

    ConsIt's a military, so there is no much space for a research to explore.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey only have on job training. By their definition, you would be rotate to another team for three months or longer, and then came back to the original team. I don't see any benefit from this system because you still don't catch up the whole operation unless you stay longer than 1.5 years. Wok-life balance strongly depends on team. If you were in manufacturing team, then you'd better have passion to stay with it...
