Pros

it is a well-known company worldwide and have good products.

Cons

the manager dominate the whole group by using his very subjective power and opinions. no smile on group member's face. everybody just come here for work, no fun, routine job for living.

Advice to Management

act like a top-tier company from an open and democratic country. USA is not Korea.

    I have been working at Samsung Research America

    Pros

    you get to work with new technology development. you will meet other start-up companies pitching ideas to you, but Korea will tell you to court relationships and then not follow through. beware of your personal reputation as a samsung employee

    Cons

    all power lies in Korea where they have little understanding of consumers outside of korea. very little work life balance. they work you to death and it's generally considered "the way it is"

    Advice to Management

    place more value and trust into your employees

    Pros

    Very very few. If you want to work for a company where everyone does absolutely nothing, this is your dream job.

    Cons

    Management is completely incompetent. This is supposed to be a research center, but no group is focusing on getting papers published in good conferences. Mainly because management is unable and incapable of doing that.

    And this is a very very sad company. Do not expect any sort of happiness inside SISA, or even seeing a smile when walking through the building.

    Advice to Management

    It would be appreciated by your reports if you read recent publications once in a while. That might help reach your goals.
