    I have been working at Samsung Group

    Pros

    well organized, engineers are goal oriented and well prepared to discuss the agenda. For project follow up, engineers are assigned to check on the schedule and progress.

    Cons

    things are just too tight and sometimes samsung engineers seem to lose patience which can be useful for things to move forward. laid back culture can be adopted to improve the general tight atmosphere.

    Pros

    Excellent co-operation, team spirit, good feedback by collaborators, open to new ideas, good life-work balance.

    Cons

    Not many, one thing to say is that the company is so big and so many projects run in the same time that it is difficult to keep track of everything that is going on.
