    I have been working at Samsung Group

    Pros

    well organized, engineers are goal oriented and well prepared to discuss the agenda. For project follow up, engineers are assigned to check on the schedule and progress.

    Cons

    things are just too tight and sometimes samsung engineers seem to lose patience which can be useful for things to move forward. laid back culture can be adopted to improve the general tight atmosphere.

    I have been working at Samsung Group part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, good pay.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management, always mirco managing, your working although your off the clock or home: meaning if your coworker sends you a email you must confirm it right away. You'll end up doing more than your job title.As a samsung rep you cant sell the actual product but only bug a best buy team member to sell it to the customer. Job actually deserves 1star im being generous with 2 becuase of the coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just shut the store down.

    Pros

    Excellent co-operation, team spirit, good feedback by collaborators, open to new ideas, good life-work balance.

    Cons

    Not many, one thing to say is that the company is so big and so many projects run in the same time that it is difficult to keep track of everything that is going on.

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

    Pros

    Many proffesionals to learn from.
    Good salary.
    Comfortable hours (at least in israel)

    Cons

    Korean management is hard to work with. Work is project based and if a department does not manage to "sell" new projects to hq they are being closed (which happened to my security department at Israel)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to get every center in the world to adjust to the Korean culture try to adjust hq to the western culture
