          Disapproves of CEO

          I have been working at MediaTek full-time for more than 3 years

          Pros

          401k, HSA, sometimes bonus can be huge, rarely though.

          Cons

          Technology can be up to two years behind competitors Lots politics, managers constantly back stabbing each others and other team members. Lots overtime. Base pay low. USA site is remote site so extremely difficult to learn the core tech from TW HQ. And CEO is not MK Tsai, it's Rick Tsai.

          Advice to Management

          Focus on finishing your own team's KPI rather than promoting yourself by back stabbing others or stealing other teams' credit.
