    Pros

    Good salary
     onsite opportunity
    Food coupons
    Transport facility etc

    Cons

    worst work culture.
    No trust on employees
    Here you will be asked to work on any technology and there is no attention on domain building .
    Management is worst be it resource management or project management.
    Here key to your success is not you excellence or dedication but your personal relationship with manager counts.
    Koreans treat Indian employees as labours and your dedication is judged by the hours you stay in the office. Work life balance is no concern here.
    If you stay here for 2 years you will mess up ur skills and become jack of all trades.
    Hard outtimes so you have to stay at least 9 hours within office.
    Now a days another policy has started ie tests.. subjective questions with 100 % negative marking so no job security also .
    If you have compulsion to stay in the NCR and can compromise with all this .. then its your dream place .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management should understand that Indians are also humans . And samsung is neither a construction company and we are not wage workers. Every country has a different working and social culture . So if you will figure it out soon then its ok else god knows if its too late..

    Pros

    Good salary, decent perks. Samsung discount coupons every year. The MD is a good guy with some good ideas.

    Cons

    Upper management is the worst possible I have experienced in my career. The MD admits that the managers are useless but doesn't fire them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire 80% of HR and managers and get some decent people.
