    I worked at Samsung Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits (medical, dental, vision, cafeteria)
    Comp is comparable or generally higher than outside (due to lack of RSU's and options)

    Cons

    * Don't kid yourself, there is no life if you join this company. I thought people were exaggerating when they said to me "be prepared to work hard". I was wrong. Be prepared to die working.
    * No incentives to work hard either, absolutely no recognition for good work, promotions are hard to come by, cash incentives are reserved for those who make cartloads of money already.
    * Poor management styles across the board. People leave managers, not companies (in this case, you would leave because of both)
    * TOO MANY KOREAN EXPATS in leadership roles. These people would not even qualify to be a normal worker in other companies, but they are in senior roles here!
    * KOREAN style of thinking and doing business, along with a propensity to break the rules and go against ethics a lot.
    * No power to make any local decisions, Korea runs the show.

    Bottomline: IF YOU ARE THINKING OF JOINING HERE, STAY AWAY!
