I have been working at Samsung Research America full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The benefits and perks are great. There is a subsidized cafeteria. and the medical/health benefits are terrific. Top Management is trying to change things and recognize the flaws it may have.

Cons

Very strong korean culture. Its a young, innovative group of talented people, but the talent is not recognized enough. Directions are always changing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep going in the direction you are going, and it will get better.

    I worked at Samsung Research America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Ample opportunity to contribute if the MSCA management gets time off power struggle and if the management decides to do anything.

    Cons

    Confused management, no direction and no vision, plays favorites, top down, no communication. It is difficult to know who is doing what. Execs are tied up in power struggle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and define a vision, stop playing favorites, and execute. At least empower those who are delivering.

    A Very Korean Company

    I have been working at Samsung Research America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good medical benefits unless you want Kaiser, which they removed. Lunch is subsidized but pretty poor quality.

    Cons

    Decisions are all made in Korea

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point in making false promises about "changes" since no change is possible unless HQ approves. And that won't happen since changes are a threat to HQ management.
