I worked at Samsung Research America as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Hands-on experience guaranteed. You are not treated as an intern baby

Cons

fast-paced, it doesn't really feel like silicon-valley company. More like a big Korean company

    I have been working at Samsung Research America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pays pretty well and there are people who care

    Cons

    This place is Korean driven and the most segregated company I have seen. I don't mean to sound bitter but it's the truth and that's how it'll be. HQ/Korea wants to make every decision all the way down to what office supplies. Those who are Korean are wired to become devoted lifers and willing to shift around in any role possible. I must warn anyone that being non Korean it is very toxic. Trust me!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so stubborn and timid. Allow those in the Silicon Valley and people you bring in to do what they're good at. You can't just sit around and wait for competitors to invent something and copy it. That luck will run out soon

    Advice to Management
