Poor direction from top-level leadership

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Samsung Information Systems America full-time for more than a year

Proscushy environment. good place to work if you are looking for something cushy

ConsHQ management does it's best to disempower its talent. There is little ability to empower or make changes. There are "dispatchers" from korea that are really just spies to make sure HQ influence and rules are adhered to. Because of the size and distance there is not much of a chance to shine in the company. Was unable to get raise to bring me up to market rate.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your employees and pay them for good work

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Worst experience of my career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Samsung Information Systems America full-time for less than a year

ProsGood salary and benefits.
Smart people and good work/life balance

ConsTerrible on developing a marketing strategy and objectives. After being hired I found out there was very limited budget and ability to drive any effective programs.
No leadership and goals. Spent all my time developing recommendations and ideas that were never implemented.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a plan in place before you hire employees and before you decide to engage in a very competitive space like services and applications.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
