    I worked at Samsung Group as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    -- Transport
    -- Average pay
    -- Food
    -- Bad work culture

    Cons

    -Came to know a policy has started in SRI Delhi (SISC. Samsung) Noida, of taking test in project language, a person is working. If you are php professional, but end up doing C++ project. Then you have to give C++ test. If there are less marks then you will be shown doors. no job security now on wards. These test are suppose to be held now onwards regularly.
    -So no job security, no domain building, you will end up messing working in various language and can be fired any time on basis on test(in the name of performance inprovement program)
    - Employees are terrified about their job security
    -Unprofessional management
    -Korean management does not trust indian management
    -- Do not join Samsung SRI noida

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -- Treat employees as human

    Pros

    You realize that you have made a big mistake and now you are more careful.

    Cons

    Here Indians are seen as cheap labour and nothing else.
    Company has no creativity, no morals and most important is the unhumanly way you are treated. You lose self respect because you know that your life had a higher purpose than this pathetic job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some respect for the people.
