    I worked at MStar Semiconductor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    While I am working here, I learned basic software engineer stuff here such as linux command line, tracing code and some OS knowledge. I also earned part of my tuition for studying abroad.

    Cons

    The working time is very long as I worked from 10AM to 11PM everyday. It is not work-life balance. Moreover, the computer provided by the company is not very stable which is a nightmare for a software engineer.

    Advice to Management

    The long working time doesn't mean better performance
