    I have been working at Samsung Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hands off approach,bosses do not micro manage you. You are given a task and it's up to you to finish it.Office is also very nicely designed

    Cons

    Hard to advance, general lack of procedures. They do not train you,you are kind of left on your own to figure out what you're doing, which isn't bad if you can learn fast by yourself.

    Long hours, random work and sometimes rework, but technically cutting edge.

    Pros

    They are working on some really cutting edge technologies. The management is understanding and trying, but the work has to get done. Generally flexible in terms of daily schedule. You can work from home some days if needed.

    Cons

    Samsung Telecom America is the offshore for Samsung Korea and they get treated like that. The work has to get done. You will face some unrealistic deadline. You may face some lack of information sharing situations.

    Advice to Management

    They need to push back in terms of schedules and information shared.

    Pros

    good benefits, decent cafeteria food

    Cons

    this place is driven by politics, data doesn't drive decisions... it's flat, they outsource everything and don't promote from within. if you're female good lucking moving up here. this company will use you, so if you want to come here it's good to have samsung on your resume, that's about all you will get from here. overall this is the worst company i've ever worked for hands down.

    Advice to Management

    get with 2009, offer flex hours, opp for advancement... you don't have to be chained to your desk to get work done. allow employees to do their job and make an impact. the politics are absurd and you will attract people because of the company name, but as of now, you'll never retain really good employees for more than a few years... this is springboard employer....

    Pros

    The people are the best reason by Far to work for Samsung.

    Cons

    Probably 85% of employees are outsourced - only upper management are permanent employees. Samsung also has VERY high turnover - people drop like flies there. Samsung is a Korean company - but the Koreans micromanage EVERY aspect of business-to the point it's counter-productive. Everything has to have approval from Koreans prior to coming to fruition - and Koreans will ask a million questions about why you are requesting whatever it is you want. Way too many hands in the pot. Also-Koreans don't like anyone who is not Korean or at the very least Asian. All upper-management is Korean.

    Advice to Management

    See above. Stop being so racist towards non-Koreans and pretending like you don't understand English when someone pushes back on you for questioning them. It's very frustrating.
