    Pros

    The technology that I work on directly impacts millions of people. Good exposure in related technologies. Start-up like work environment, fast and agile.

    Cons

    Engineering is strongly driven by market and product requirement. Research is sometimes sometimes hampered due to lack of time.

    Pros

    Team meetings are short and very productive, (no boring endless meetings)
    People are friendly, no matter what nationality are they

    Cons

    Some managers are really pain in the... Some managers goes that far that they want micromanagement on daily report. It takes sometimes over 1 hour to write the report to the manager... silly

    Advice to Management

    Change the company culture and let the people idea to flow! Don't be on every employee neck and once you start with an idea, just go with it, make the path as straigh as possible not with back and forth left and right move...

    I worked at Samsung Group as an intern

    Pros

    Their 1 to 1 mentor program helped a lot. Mentors were very kind and helpful. You can learn a lot during the two months internship program in summer or winter.

    Cons

    For development positions, you might need to work extra hours. I had to work for extra hours since I did not have previous experience with the language I used.
