    Please don't assign tasks that should be for other departments on one specific department only. Hire engineers to replace resigned employees.

    Pros

    They got excellent products, nice working scope, and western management style! Good working environment between sales team and business unit.

    Cons

    salary is below average and the hiring process is slow. The entire response is way below the companies in states.

    Advice to Management

    The Salary structure should be adjusted and the team in specific area has to be reorganized because of non open minded culture

    Pros

    Allegro Microsystems Philippines Inc., or AMPI in short, has been around in the Philippines since the 1970s and has been the company's lone assembly and test site until the opening of AMTC or Allegro Thailand last May 2015. As for the pros: - provides the benefits that most semicon companies in the Philippines offers, like rice subsidy, yearly bonus, meal allowance, shuttle, hmo, paid leaves, retirement plan...,incremental yearly increase. also provides the govt mandated benefits like OT pay, night differential, 13th month pay - good working environment, nice people. not selfish in sharing knowledge and skills - good working and learning experience for fresh graduates - provides inhouse trainings and seminars - for shifting personnel, the work schedule is 5 working days and 2 leaves for 12 hours. Looking at a positive perspective, this is good for those who want to earn more. - recently, management has been very aggressive in raising the standards of the company through leaner manufacturing, fast paced product innovation, organizational restructuring and updating old and dated systems to be more competitive In summary, AMPI is a very good training and starting ground for technicians and engineers alike who would want to specialize in a multinational semiconductor industry. The compensation is more or less just right for those who have 3 years or less of working experience, plus the environment is good and not stress-filled.

    Cons

    As I have been with two other multinational semiconductor companies who can be considered as more or less a direct competitor to AMPI for a short time, I have noticed the ff: - benefits that are being offered in AMPI are far LESS than what they are offering in other top semiconductor companies in Philippines. In some cases, bonuses and subsidies are two times less here vs. others. Allowances and paid leaves of... other semicon companies are also better than AMPI. Yearly increase are also so small it is almost negligible - trainings, despite being good, leaves a lot to be desired - lunch hours are not paid. non shifting personnel are are required to be at the office for 52.5 hours a week or roughly 10.5 hours per day - for shifting personnel, the work schedule is 5 working days and 2 leaves for 12 hours. Looking at a negative perspective, this schedule can prove to be quite exhausting. Some companies follow a 4 working day, 3leave schedule with no personnel working for more than 60 hours per week - something that AMPI does not provide. - internal job opportunities is so limited that there is only a small room for professional growth here - despite the management efforts to transform the company into a competitive one, I believe that the road is still a long and winding one partly due to the Herculean task of tearing down the old ways of thinking that wass ingrained in the company for a long time. I doubt that it will ever become the best in its class here In summary, if you are a potential employee with 3 years or more of working experience in the semiconductor industry, you may find the compensation package and the opportunities for growth here to be a bit below what is expected, although you may want to consider this company if you are applying for an exempt position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in trying to raise the competitiveness of Allegro. You may want to review org structures for redundancy and improve compensation levels and pay grades to lessen turnover rates of your technical pros.
