I have been working at Samsung Mobile full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great health benefits and the ability to use new technology before anyone else. Working from home can be another perk that comes with the job.

Cons

Limited growth, small territory, micro managed with GPS and time tagging, very long hours, stress due to chaotic changes that often make no logical sense. No travel and no fun. This used to be a great place to work. It's very disappointing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Blanket approaches to big issues don't work.
Promote from within.
Push back on unreasonable requests from HQ in Korea and explain WHY.
There are cultural differences that need to be understood by both sides.
Stop manipulating numbers, if you play long enough, anything can be made to look good or bad.
Don't hire so quickly!
If you need merchandising, hire a third party, not seasoned professionals.

Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Samsung Mobile full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Relatively easy interview, Benefits, Flexible time-off policies.

    Cons

    This is Korea based company, meaning all important decisions come from HQ Korea. Plus if you speak Korean, their expectation on work load increases. Ready to be HQ Korea's puppet. Typical Asian style work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR/Management need to watch out who's being discriminated.

    I have been working at Samsung Mobile full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can improve management skills with many projects. Plus, you can be exposed to many high tech. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    With high workload, it is very hard to have extra time to learn. Also, it is very hard for employee to follow the acquisition since many decisions made at last minute.
