    I worked at TSMC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at TSMC were very motivated and hardworking. The culture of the company is very united and everyone that works there is very passionate about what TSMC does. Facebook, gmail, and other "distracting" websites are blocked to promote efficiency.

    Cons

    There are very strict rules regarding usage of phones/computers etc. The work environment seems very stressful and the hours are very long.

    I have been working at TSMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Big company, with high diversity. To meet different people is interesting. One can grow very fast by learning other colleague's advantage. - Form action plan for issue and assign due date for sponsor, very effective management culture.

    Cons

    - Environment was too complex (too much things to know) where managers often had no time/patience to listen details. First thing they do ask is how much "benefit" ? - managers are always right. - Growing from a big company to even bigger company. Promotion is not easy. - Delay 1/2 bonus delivery until mid next year ( new employee: 1st 3 months in company are considered as probation, no bonus ).

    Advice to Management

    Consider employee's idea, and spend time to listen to them. They can bring up great ideas.
