Cons

    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are talented & perform at very high levels. The culture is dynamic & expectations are high. You are constantly challenged & always learning something new. The pay is good & the benefits are the greatest I've seen. Great products. My professional growth has grown tremendously due to the level of execution that is expected.

    Cons

    Constant, fast-paced, stressful environment. Often times, you are expected to work with urgency, but only for the sake of being urgent. Very long work hours, which causes burnout. Because many activities & objectives are always so new, positions are created out of necessity, but have no clear career growth/mapping. Although work-life balance is stressed verbally, it's certainly not the case when working.

    Advice to Management

    No need to always be urgent. At times, slow down & work through objectives in a moderate pace to ensure it's done correctly. Be cognizant of your staff's work-life balance & career goals.
