I have been working at Samsung Semiconductor full-time (more than a year)

Pros

If you're looking for a stable environment, this is the place.
They offer good benefits and starting 20 days of vacation a year
Many older employees who stick around until retirement.

Cons

Being an Asian company, they are very culturally conservative so be prepared.
Not much room for personal growth as all upper management tends to be Korean.
High turnover rate for young employees since many are temps or contractors and little room for growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase headcount, hire more young creative employees, reduce conservative culture, focus less on numbers and more on actual content of work.

    Pros

    Good health benefits and salary

    Cons

    Many..

    working for this company means you are visitor to Korea and will leave after sometime. Everything is controlled from Korea HQ.. you will not have freedom to come up with good soln you need to depend on korea for everything and hey wait if you are coming to this company then make sure you learn korean otherwise life will be difficult. In meeting people start talking in korean and you will look stupid and most of the documentation you get is also either poorly translated in English or they simply ignore your request to share document..

    Ah i was thinking that this company will never do layoff and just found out that they did layoff of another team located in Milpitas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stand with your employee and make korea management understand that engineers working in america office are not idiots.
