For automakers, everything is in flux.
Four big disruptions— automated cars, connected vehicles, electric vehicles, and shared-vehicle technology — create new mobility solutions for drivers and various industries. At the same time, this new innovation comes with a host of financial and technical issues. Additionally, the impact of Uber and Tesla pedestrian fatalities has led government agencies and engineers to rethink safety and security measures.
For years, semiconductor innovation has heated up the competition between big chip players like Nvidia and Intel, as well as tech giants like Facebook and Amazon. Now, chip companies face a new competitive challenge: making chips for specific purposes as opposed to competing on performance edge or price.
Every industry has its own stressful work environments, but working as a semiconductor professional comes with a unique set of stressors and challenges. While it can be tempting to work with an iron willpower despite the pressure, this can lead to burnout and low productivity. It's critical to stay cool during your day-to-day operations.
