    Pros

    Good people around to work with. Nice exposure to different technology and package designs. Many employee events and happenings sponsored by management.

    Cons

    Management is forced to lay off people at critical times, as per instructed by the Board. Which is troublesome for employees as job stability is always questionable. Forced leave every year is a bad idea too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep lower level engineers rather than keep admin bosses.

    I worked at Utac full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Team i was join is very good and no politics, willing to help each other
    * If you are not manager level and belong to USG1, you will get your bonus quarterly (if company doing well)

    Cons

    * No Project Management implements in UTAC.
    * Can't trust Top level management words. they never do what they talk. If there are 3 meetings to discuss 1 projects, don't surprise you will get 3 different decisions and even at the end, top level has different expectation with the last decisions.
    * It would be often to hear, "please put this new project as you highest priorty but don't delay the other schedule"
    * Top level management like to over promise to users, especially high level user and/or customer without checking with team workload whether we can make it or not.
    * Fake Skip level meeting. Don't like to listen feedback, so skip level meeting only a formality meeting (to perform their KPI?)
    * User don't know the detail of their jobs and they like to raise new request (to fulfil their KPI?) without knowing the detail requirement and/or impact for other team.
    * Need to standby 24 x 7 and able to take action immediately even when you are sleep, you are on sick leave, or even when you are overseas.
    * 1 Project handle by 1 person --> 1 person handle multiple projects but no one able to assists when you are on leave or busy with other projects

    Advice to Management

    * Take feedback during skip level meeting seriously. don't make it as a formality meeting as per HR request. Inform staff what has you done with the feedback, whether you think is not correct feedback, or what plan you have done or even action you take.
    * Do proper project management. if top priority project change, meaning the current project need to re-schedule instead of just saying please make sure the current project not delay.
    *
