Very much dependent on your manager and department you work for but mostly very demanding with high expectation

    Pros

    -Has worked well with reserve obligations and deployments, was well taken care of during 9 month activation to Afghanistan. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    -Management does more talking than doing, promotions are are very rare. Management style is confrontational, seems to only understand punishment with no use of incentives.

    I worked at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things about this company which many people have said this before is the Health benefits.
    They do have a decent pay for a recent engineer grad.

    Cons

    This place is terrible to work at. Morale is at an all time low. They are in a cost saving mode right now so the mentality is how can we save money. This means poor bonuses and low raises.
    The work life balance is non existent. If you want to work holidays and late nights then this is the place for you.
    I remember one time it snowed in Austin and every business was closed but Samsung. The company knew the weather was going to be bad but they sent out an email saying that everyone had to be there the next day or take PTO. They had no care for their employees safety.
    The micro management here is ridiculous. It takes weeks to get anything accomplished with all the hoops you have to jump through. Everyone wants a report or the documents formatted their way, then the next week the report requirements will change and a new format will now be needed. The departments also reorganize every couple of months so you have no stability.
    The company hires some of the dumbest people i have ever worked with. I have no idea how some of these people get degrees. They also hire and over pay experienced engineers that do the same work as an entry level engineer would.
    Management doesnt promote based off of the quality or amount of work you do but its based on need for the department and politics. If the department has no Engineer 2's in it then they will promote the needed amount to make the company look stronger. Even if the people they promote surf the internet all day and have no idea how to do their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of them need to be fired and new people who know how to manage employees need to come in.
