Energetic, well-funded engineering group

Intern (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Samsung Group as an intern for less than a year

ProsSamsung has a very talented group of capable engineers with a lot of resources behind it. The Austin CPU group was relaxed and easy-going, though I heard that the memory/fab center was much more rigid and strict. You could tell that the company was investing a lot in terms of personnel and resources.

ConsSamsung was hiring people from all the major companies, so there were some culture clashes between ex-AMD/Intel/IBM employees. Some 'clique-ness' existed when it came to presenting ideas.

Advice to Senior Managementimprove the culture and flow of ideas.

Start up excitement with deep corporate support and design engineering talent at Samsung Austin R&D Center

Technical Recruiter (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Samsung Group full-time for more than a year

ProsA great collaborative engineering environment focused on advanced high performance and low power CPU/GPU design. A perfect blend of senior design engineering talent and junior engineering energy. There is no better place for new grads to be exposed to industry leading designs and work closely with accomplished architects and engineers. There is high morale and a shared sense of accomplishment which is not easy to find.

ConsReally none. SARC is three years old and continues to experience rapid growth and success. I think the design roadmap is challenging and exciting.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it going. SARC is a unique environment with a bright future. I've spent over 20 years in the semiconductor industry with various companies and this is as good as it gets in my opinion.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
