    I have been working at Samsung Research America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Being that Samsung has its hands in a lot of pots, you get some nice employee discounts, though not as many as I would have hoped. My management chain has been nothing but awesome, they made sure I have everything I wanted to be able to get my job done. The teams get together regularly and have mixers as well as other team events. The best part is our game room that has everything you could want to blow off some steam, or just to waste time. Medical benefits are top notch. Aeron chairs for everyone!

    Cons

    It is a satellite branch of a larger company, so there isn't any escaping the dynamics of HQ vs the other guys. I have heard horror stories, but I see things changing everyday. Teams are budgeting for team snacks, as well as other goodies, but corporate should be providing these, not just individual teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on the tech lock down, and make the facilities look and feel more fun. The culture is shifting, but not as fast as employees would like to see. It would be nice if we could get discounts on everything Samsung makes instead of a few products from each family of products. Having a physical corporate store would help with company pride.
