    I worked at TSMC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very discipline and hard working employees. The company has great welfare system that you could enjoy free fruit as afternoon tea. It's a good experience to work there for two months.

    Cons

    Most of the people work late. They really devoted themselves to work. The company restaurants were not good enough for those hard-working people.

    Advice to Management

    I would say it's a little bit too intense that employee should take more rest. Other than that, It's a wonderful company! It's getting better and better.

    Pros

    good to know lots of knowledge from semiconductor. My mentor and buddy always give me lots of help. A very nice company.

    I took to many times in learning some basic knowledge. If we can prepare it before going to TSMC, we can have more time to finish our project.

    Advice to Management

    no any suggestion. they provide a good environment for internship student. We are very appreciate to have the opportunity to being an internship student there.

    I worked at TSMC (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have one of the highest pays in Taiwan for the semiconductor industry. It is also an internationally known company, so workers can lean a lot about the newest technology trends.

    Cons

    With high pay, the workload is not light. It might be necessary to work overtime to get things finished. However, this is how life is in Asia, and generally this has a high CP value in terms of worker benefits.

    Intensive and comprehensive training program
    TSMC is the most valuable semi-conductor company in the world, therefore it has biggest platform for employees to bring their talent in play.

    the defensive strategy of TSMC is to prevent the business secret to spread out to its competitors, therefore electronic device regulation is very strict.
