    Pros

    The company offers pretty nice benefits. Growth is very slow and hard to advance unless you excel above and beyond.

    Cons

    The company while strives for globalization of workforce, it tends to heavily rely on Korean Americans in the office. The works tends to be put a lot more on Korean speaking workforce than others by far. The company has recently gone through so much changes including budget cut and workforce downsizing and it has started to strain those remaining and cause stress and exhaustion of working lots of overtime.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Samsung C&T America (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Interview took about 30 minutes. The worst experience I have never had. At first I thought they were challenging my EQ and said that all things about my background did not match for the job description. I did all I could to convince them that how my skill set were transferable as usual. To the point that it was a very hostile situation and crossed the line. I felt I was humiliated by the MANAGER disgracing my GPA, my University and my working experience. They had no reason to disgrace my ability in the interview. If they do not trust what I did or said, they will eventually found out by running a background check on me. I am very proud of what I did before. The only reason that I am interviewing in this company is because I recently immigrated and need to start everything again even from the entry level. I could not believe they are so narrow minded.
