    I have been working at Samsung Group

    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 an 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

    I have been working at Samsung Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hands off approach,bosses do not micro manage you. You are given a task and it's up to you to finish it.Office is also very nicely designed

    Cons

    Hard to advance, general lack of procedures. They do not train you,you are kind of left on your own to figure out what you're doing, which isn't bad if you can learn fast by yourself.
