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

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Schedule flexibility (work from home office) - Get to demo the latest mobile technology

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is virtually non-existent
    - Sales goals are extremely high and out of touch with reality which is demoralizing
    - Upper management has poor communication with field management
    - Job focus and objectives are constantly changing with little or no reason given which leads to confusion and poor execution
    - Field team is managed from afar with often unclear direction, but still held accountable for things out if their span of control
    - Upper management focuses on negative performance management with little recognition given for contributions to the program
    - Limited career development and promotional opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The turnover rate for the Samsung store in store program is very high and will only increase unless upper management takes a more positive approach, becomes more supportive and begins addressing pain points in the field.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Good pay, Co workers will feel like a family. But ofcourse that can be due to the same stress and abuse we are all receiving.

    Cons

    Management consistently will threaten your job to "motivate" you. Even though you are a hourly employee they will continue to give you work to do at home. Higher management is direct samsung employees all they focus is on sales and numbers when our actual job tittle doesn't say anything about it. Don't trust Mosaic HR they tell samsung everything, they much rather keep their contract with samsung then protect employees; so you are eventually targeted and just end up getting fired. They will make it impossible for you to request time off and will not pay your for sick days or personal days if you do not tell them every detail as to why you are sick. They pay is good but not worth the headache and stress. My warning to you don't do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just close it down, samsung is a great company but the employees (Area / district / market managers) from Samsung end is a disaster . Mosaic hired some great people but they won't stand up for their employees so what's the point.
