    good to work for your first job

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Leading semiconductor company with strong market share Good teamwork and communication at local level and international

    Cons

    Upper and middle management out of touch with onsite teams, concentrated too much on squeezing more dollars out of everything. Rely heavily on senior employees to do extra work and do more new employee training for all the new hires with no experience since post Covid still opening up more but not fully ready to go back to in person/hands on training.
