    Pros

    Being a small company there are many opportunities to engage with senior management. Found that personnel in operations, accounting, IT and engineering were extremely helpful and did not have a protectionist mentality.

    Cons

    Publicly traded company but most of the stock is owned by a single family who controls the direction of the company. It's a small company so there are lots of opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should instill a culture where their managers are also focused of the development of their employees not just their own careers.

    I worked at Amkor (More than a year)

    Pros

    To some degree you got to help call the shots within parts of the environment.

    Cons

    Review processes were pretty unstructured. Not sure what the point of it when everyone has an annual review at the same time w/o post direction. Since its in the semiconductor when the smartphone/technology industry suffers. the employees suffer. Work-life balance was terrible and the worst I've ever had to endure in all my years of on-call. the IT department was incredibly lean for the amount of employees which were serviced which caused the work-life balance issues.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise on more thorough review processes not just top down but from down up. You should have periodic surveys to gauge employee feelings.

    I worked at Amkor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people and technology. Large package portfolio and diverse manufacturing foot print. The majority of the employees work hard and are supportive.

    Cons

    CEO has no vision, communication or leadership skills and a total disregards for the employees and customers. His actions have alienated the employees and customers. Many long time customers have redirected all or large portions of their business. The CEO has attempted to restructure the company as a product company bringing in management teams that have no or very little manufacturing or packaging experience.

    Advice to Management

    The Kim family and the board need to make a CEO change to a leader who can restore the values the company was built on before it is too late.
