    Pros

    Profitable company.
    Competitive salary compared with the other company in Taiwan
    Lot Benefits for employees

    Cons

    Working hour is long, but it depends on what department you are working for.
    The company is too large so sometimes you can not get the whole picture of one project.
    The security policy is quite annoying for some of the work

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

    Pros

    good salary comparing to most company in Taiwan, benefits also outstanding. Boss always ask you to have vacation as much as possible....

    Cons

    too much work, work-life balance isn't easy, routine job, not creative at all. Training at the beginning isn't enough, always saying like this: Learn when you are doing your job. The profession that you learn from company isn't easily allied to job in other company, unless you go to another semiconductor company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not take your employee as a non-stop machine and no need to take a rest. Work-life balance is not only a slogan, for people on the top, it's easy, but not for the bottom. As a former small engineer, I would say too much work and too less people in tsmc. I wish it could be different, after all, it's still the 1st rank company in Taiwan.

    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Tainan (Taiwan)

    I worked at TSMC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    TSMC RD has very good organization function design to develop many different tecnnology nodes in parallel. 10 years there are only two platforms in RD organization to develop two generations technology nodes in paraellel, In the last 5 years , TSMC RD organization was redesign by module process function , not by tecnhology node. So new RD organization is well designed to develop 4 different tecnhology nodes in parallel .

    Cons

    To delivery mature technology to market on schedule or even ahead schedule, the job loading and stress is quite big for their engineers & managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To build one comfortable work environment without over emphasize personal performance.
