    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.

    Good things 70% and bad things 30%. Best memory in samsung is the friendship with nice people. Worst thing is to listen to the promotion of worst people.
