    Would not recommend to work here, you have to stay in the FAB for more then 8 hrs regardless if your task is completed in a shorter time management treat you like a slave

    I have been working at Systems on Silicon Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Teamwork OK and pay slightly higher

    Cons

    Too many duplicated procedure and complex database system which need multiple approval from different parties if need to do changes. Time consuming and hard to be completed within normal working hours. Tight commitment date for projects and issues. Worse manpower arrangement and OT restriction causing team being suffered with unwanted workload but still need to ensure quality assured.

    Advice to Management

    Employee is company asset. Consider more on employee benefit instead of only treating us as slave and causing us to work just as sake of work, no work satisfaction at all.

    I worked at Systems on Silicon Manufacturing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None. Not applicable in this company. Can’t think of any pros of this company. Highly not recommended. Think 10times more if you want to come.

    Cons

    No rest at all. Boss expected you work 7days 24hrs per week. You only get to rest when u taking annual leave and overseas. Micro managing on employees. Expect you to know everything immediately and solve problem immediately. Want things fast but have to ensure quality also. Expect you to work like robot. Cannot make any single mistakes. Threaten you with punishment and bonus forfeit. No matter how hard you do, your works...

    Advice to Management

    I don’t hold any hope from management team more.

    Pros

    Not anymore. Do not expect any

    Cons

    Being expected to work late, work night, work weekend but end up what you get is one sentence of “why you never follow up”. No more OT accepted but expected to work prolong time as free labor. No more attractive bonus and soon probably no more. No more attractive quarter bonus and soon also probably no more. Just one sentence from top, all fellow from bottom just work like dog to meet boss’s request just for the sake...

    Advice to Management

    Please stop expecting bottom to work like dog and don’t allow thinking. Please stop micromanaging or judging employee performance by looking at daily how much time you tap in tap out and forcing everybody to follow for the sake of following.
