    I worked at STATS ChipPAC full-time

    Pros

    Quite a good compensation. Annual wage salary and yearly bonus are always given to the employees even when the company facing financial difficulty.

    Cons

    Your career may not go up even after working for 10 years. You will learn how to survive from office politics. Pressures and accusations often come from other divisions' head who think that they are always right..

    Advice to Management

    Help your pupil to grow.

    Pros

    Depending on which department you go, some of the bosses are really supportive and hands-on. They walk the talk, and will help you. But be prepared to work hard. Hard work will be recognized if you are talented and vocal.

    Cons

    No Benefits and no work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Need to revamp process to make it less manual

    Pros

    The company has strong "can do" and "die die must do"attitude. Highly customer oriented.

    Cons

    POOR MANAGEMENT. No EQ towards human relations. Culture is rigid. Not so friendly. High-stress due to lack of manpower. Constantly receiving notifications in WHATSAPP GROUP even after working hours. Expected to respond to calls/ messages after working hours. No work/ life balance. No dental and bonus benefits. Hierarchy system messed up: an engineer reports to another engineer instead of a higher-up.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention and effort to employees' welfare. We love our job but not the culture and environment. Stuffy/ crowded office and no pantry.

    I have been working at STATS ChipPAC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Best pay scale for all employees.
    2. Best opportunities to grow up the career graph. If established with your abilities, you will be a high flyer in the company.
    3. Management appreciates employees contributions regardless of race or nationality. (This is one of the best working culture i have ever seen)
    4. Latest technologies for 12" and 13" wafer processing and good learning opportunities.
    5. Positive business outlook in the upcoming years.
    6. Flexible working hours
    7. Company allows paid time off on every quarter for employees to spend time with families.
    8. Approachable management.

    Cons

    1. The outgoing company transport for office employees can be improved. Currently only one bus running between company and Yishun for office hour staff. Some times need to wait long time in queues to get the bus.
    2. Too many last minute paperwork or audit preparations. (This is a norm for all backend companies)

    Advice to Management

    Nothing much. The management is taking care of employees fairly and equally. Please keep it up
