    I worked at Dongbu HiTek full-time

    Pros

    If you can join as very senior management like from Samsung... would it be better?

    Cons

    Incompetent management. Engineering is weak and worse R&D investment is shrinking.
    The company is on sale but there is no determined suitor. The market reaction is the the company does not have cutting-edge technology.

    Advice to Management

    The company will continue to have hard time to hire top talents. Reputation is already so bad.

    Mid size company - part of a large group so gives you some stability.

    No clear strategy - always iin state of flux

    Focus on core biz (foundry) and stop wasting time and resources

    I worked at Dongbu HiTek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with colleagues and executive management. Technology is niche and I despite not being an employee currently, I wouldn't hesitate to go back, given the opportunity

    Cons

    Remote working was a challenge and chance of long term success was prohibitive due to market conditions. Challenging to meet objectives despite the desire for success.

    Advice to Management

    Looking at other niche technology development beyond BCD and expand the manufacturing output, either threw expansion of existing fabs or acquisition. Good luck for the future.

    I worked at Dongbu HiTek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working closely with Fab. It is big advantage for semiconductor business. Flexible working start time in the morning. Flexible business strategy.

    Cons

    Managing power is concentrated on only a few high level management. But, responsibility is yours. Big mouth is a winner even though it is wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Need to open their ears.
