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

    Pros

    -Benefits are very good: cost and coverage is best in class.
    -Pay is fair.
    -There is no time to be bored
    -Great brand recognition
    -Produces good technology/product

    Cons

    -It is a Korean company: poor communication from management; employees are treated poorly, especially if you are not Korean; complete disregard for US business practices; you will often be told that Americans are dumb and lazy; excessively long hours; mangement makes busy work (insane reporting of excrutiating detail); everything is a last minute fire drill and half-baked, there is no planning; manage by instilling fear in employees
    -Most of US management is young and never really had any true leadership experience. So, there is no leadership anywhere, just lots of micromanagement. The lack of leadership depth produces a rude, disrespectful environment. But they all look "pretty".
    -The systems and tools employees have to do their jobs is unacceptable for a Global company as big as Samsung.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement world-class systems and treat all employees with respect. Let local employees run the company.
