@ resistion, yeah right, in china ppl work for intel's backend, sales, system dept. no yield issue will ever happen. btw, you will at least get overtime pay. some chinese firms call it sacrifice, ie free, i know a place will provide free apple at 9:00pm.

When there is a process yield issue, the affected groups within Intel, TSMC, Samsung, etc., would go 24 hr.

How is that any different from Silicon Valley, apart from the age discrimination being flipped?

uh... many/most chinese companies don't understand work/life balance, they work on 6/12 pattern, which is just hard to swallow for most 'normal' ppl. and many state owned company might have lower compensation and favors older folks.

I work closely with Chinese profs and students and this survey result is not surprising. The students today want secruity and status. Money is not even great in China as a new grad. I know for a fact that professors who want to start a business with their grad students mostly have a hard time convincing their students to stay. You really need to speak Chinese to these guys to know what they think.

I was also intrigued by the survey results by country. My thoughts were much like yours, Junko, with respect to what industries the young engineering grads can actually relate to. As Chinese industries develop more of their own products, I'll bet the Chinese grads will gravitate to them as well. But I'm even more intrigued by the input EE Times gets from the Chinese readers. Very different basic attitudes, or so it would seem, between East and West. One wonders how long that will last, in the age of globalization.

I don't see the relationship with communism. It's simply the compensation and career growth, isn't it?

I guess Communism is not popular, regardless how they tone it down and repackage it. The Chinese ain't as easily fooled. So they vote with their feet.
