    I worked at Advanced Semiconductor Engineering full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers in US and factories. All work hard and do their best to support common goal to bring in revenue when possible. -loved the work and customers, personally challenging great opportunity to improve and learn new skills to improve sales performance. - Great multicultural experience, but really need to understand and respect the work culture and management style. -COO Tien Wu is wise and inspiring leader with vision for the company and knowledge of semiconductor business and future trends.

    Cons

    Senior management requires so much data analysis without providing the analytic tools Annual plan process is three month grueling process and end result often not realistic. Work life balance almost non existent, work long hours and feel it's never enough. Management could learn more effective ways to communicate and motivate employees.

    Pros

    In a consolidating industry, ASE is doing well. It has some natural advantages because its top management understands real estate and has strong government connection in Taiwan and China. Top management is capable. Job is stable.

    Cons

    (1) Pay is low. Long hours. Add these two together, pay is even lower. (2) Much of the company's direction is driven by the sales organization. The sales teams are driven by short-term performance. A lot of sucking-up to customers. A lot of finger-pointing if quota is missed. (3) Middle management is weak. They have two modes of operation: ignoring you (if customers don't complain) and micromanaging the poop out of you (if customers complain). (4) Limited career advancement. If you don't speak some kind of Asian languages, especially Taiwanese and Mandarin, don't expect to advance much. Since most people you deal with speak English poorly, communicating in English is actually a disadvantage. (5) Lack of IT infrastructure. There is a ton of paper work, think sales forecast, sales report, travel expense, product spec, etc. They make you do them manually. The management refuses to improve your productivity by spending on IT, so you are stuck performing low-skill, long-hour tasks.
