    I have been working at Tower Semiconductor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can change a career path within the company, nice cafeteria, good at pushing for quick and creative solutions

    Cons

    Atmosphere is intense, lack of positive feedback, work-life is not balanced well with long work hours, occasional weekend tasks. Usually understaffed in many places causing a lot of pressure on existing work force and lack of responsiveness.

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to work force, invest more in the people and focus on motivation, map workforce, find gaps and fill them in to allow better focus on the important activities without neglecting 2nd and 3rd priority work..

    good internal education system & library
    dynamic atmosphere

    Cons

    high pressure, demanding job
    sometimes erratic and aggressive management decisions
    management roles difficult to attain, even more difficult to maintain due to stress, endless hours and heavy responsibility
    some departments and employees are very aggressive and unfriendly, non-service-oriented and therefore very difficult to work with
