No opinion of CEO

Pros

Team work, challenging projects, lot of exciting things going on. Experiencing what's happening at the front of semiconductor technology and etc.

Cons

Again, challenging environment lead to high pressure at the work place. Lack of resources and need to face multiple customer un-reasonable requests all the time.

Advice to Management

Take care of the employees, who are the most worthy assets in the company. Focus and excel on the core products and do not invest in low tech and easy to enter sectors by what Wallstreet is talking about.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    global company, good pay, great technology

    Cons

    There is a very real bias against employees advancing into the senior management roles. It does not matter what you do unless you come from outside the company forget it. I see no career path for myself after over a decade here.

    Advice to Management

    Preference internal promotion over external hires.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I found the position, people to be most rewarding. The compenstion was adequate as well as organized structure to include benefits, training, and business exposure.

    Cons

    The value of adequate engineering resources within the KPU, and field operations is a clear detractor. RIFs and the up and down customer market make it nerve wracking to know if one is going to be employed at any point in time.
