Pros

Interesting topics (if you look for them), but opportunity to "shine" is limited due to the management philosophy. Samsung name will open doors when working with partners. Broad spectrum of technologies and markets to potentially work on.

Cons

Near zero empowerment - only goal is to please HQ no matter what "Dispatch" managers from HQ run the place just like it was Korea Poor communication w/ Korea HQ makes it difficult to make progress Local office is managed in Korean style - can be shocking/harsh to US workers

    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.

    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
