    I worked at Samsung Semiconductor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You don't have to deal with a lot of internal politics as that is all kept within the Korean management.

    Cons

    No fairness in how HR matters are dealt with, borderline and sometimes blatantly illegal activities. No trust of non-Korean employees and a lot of talented peoples skills are wasted because of that. Management decisions are made for political and personal advancement rather that what is best for the business of the company. One set of rules for Korean employees and another for non-Koreans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace HR department with some people with integrity and trust the talented employees you have.

    Pros

    Great peers and great benefits.

    Cons

    Company and upper management doesn't care about the employees. Management just wants to please SEC. People are so busy and inundated with too much work. No work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees
