The offered package is reasonably good but most importantly, you may need to think and research a bit more.
- Is the role only restricted to Semiconductor industry? In case, semiconductor js moving out of singapore, locally, there are jobs for you or else you will need to work elsewhere or you need step backward on yiur progression if this really happen.
- What are the potential upgrades in 1-2yrs, 5yrs, 10 yrs roadmap?

First and foremost, is this your true interest? If not, you will be wasting a lot of time on the first job doing a job not beneficial for your career.

Thanks for the advice provided! I agree that knowing whether role is restricted to semi-conductor industry is very important, actually, I was hoping any ex-micron or current micron employees could share their opinions on this.

From the job scope, it seems like the skills sets from this role are quite transferable as a lot of it revolves around working with different process engineers to integrate individual processes in a project, along with data mining and analysis of results.

For progression wise, I was told by my friend at micron(from a different role) that the process integration engineer usually has a faster progression and most decent ones get promoted to managerial level within 5-6 years (engineer 1 to 3 to manager).

Anyway, this is the first job offer that I received and since this is still early on, I spoke to the HR nicely and asked if it is possible for me to accept the position but reject it if a better one comes to me along the way. She said it is fine as long as it is not too late and I do not need to serve the notice period if I have not started my first day there.

Whatís sad about someone who is hardworking with the results to prove it wanting to be in a managerial position after 5 years? His academical results clearly puts him in the top 20% of the entire cohort and he is showing careful consideration of whether take the job (considering whether itís a sustainable decision). Who is to say someone wanting to be in a managerial position within 5 years cannot contribute more effectively than a boomer with 20 years of ineffectiveness?

Would it make you happier if engineers only want to be managers after grinding 20 years like you?

From my micron experience many years back, ppl with FCH or a officer role during NS will have a stable pathway to managerial role. I had colleagues whom became managers within 3 years.

Semicon is definitely not on par with TECH roles in terms of pay. If you are still fresh, would suggest you start with a TECH role than a process/equipment engineer role (spend some time to study in a bootcamp, etc). In due time semicon might shift out as our cost is high here. China, Vietnam will be a much feasible location for produxtion.

You guys must be deluded if you think all it takes to be a manager is merely being good at your job. Learn how to stroke a cock and gulp it down if you want to get there.
