    I have been working at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    • Lots of energy in this place.
    • This is a FAST working environment. The day goes by quickly. I am never bored.
    • There's an on-site gym, basketball half court, hike and bike trails
    • The out of pocket costs with our health insurance plans saves me $10K per year over past employer plans.
    • The company is investing in this site. It shows that the business in Austin has a long-term future. That stability is refreshing!
    • Accountability and responsibility can be given to anyone who shows a willingness to learn and grow

    Cons

    • Basic systems like Email, Calendar, Approvals, requests, etc., are very cranky and slow. Email especially is very frustrating. A big time-waster.
    • Internal communications were not very "polished" when I first arrived, but have improved significantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    • The new leadership at SAS is working with HR to continuously improve the culture and environment.
    • Communication is really improving with the SAS intranet Communications site and improved Herald.
    • Our leaders seem to have a good exchange of ideas – not always agreeing, but always getting consensus.
    • Company is headed in the right direction with advanced technology development. Let’s drive this market! Keep encouraging innovation!
