    Pros

    Work is very interesting in CPU and GPU development. Very strategic to Samsung's growth to Number 1 position in Semiconductors worldwide. People are technically outstanding as SARC has done an excellent job of recruiting the best and brightest. No ego's policy is adhered to. Leadership at the Group Manager, Director and VP level is awesome!

    Cons

    Need to hire more people. Only limitation is the location of the facility but SARC is moving to a new location in July and that should help.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing!

    Pros

    A great collaborative engineering environment focused on advanced high performance and low power CPU/GPU design. A perfect blend of senior design engineering talent and junior engineering energy. There is no better place for new grads to be exposed to industry leading designs and work closely with accomplished architects and engineers. There is high morale and a shared sense of accomplishment which is not easy to find.

    Cons

    Really none. SARC is three years old and continues to experience rapid growth and success. I think the design roadmap is challenging and exciting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going. SARC is a unique environment with a bright future. I've spent over 20 years in the semiconductor industry with various companies and this is as good as it gets in my opinion.

    Pros

    This is an RnD office of the South Korea headquarters. Projects here are for System LSI part of Samsung Electronics so it's not to be mistaken with the FAB on the other side of town. Pay is competitive with industry. Hours are reasonable. Culture is very friendly, open and team oriented. The employees don't play political games here.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure is antiquated and not what I expected from an electronics leader.

    Advice to Management

    Fix IT. It gets in way of productivity. Keep everything else the same.
