    I worked at Samsung Group

    Pros

    The company offers full of new opportunities to meet new people and work on new projects. Also it has good insurance and benefits along with extra bonus time to time. You will never get bored.

    Cons

    As a return you are asked to work many many hours along with dedication. Sometimes the dedication can go too far.

    I have been working at Samsung Group

    Pros

    Good pay, but hard work. Exceptional performance is expected in all aspects. If you perform well, then you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Pay is good, but very tight on expenses and other items. Pretty rigid in methodology. Not big on caring about you as an individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a little less rigid with the work rules and give people more freedom to perform.
