    I worked at Samsung Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No doubt they are a huge company with money to throw around. The benefits are great.

    Cons

    Expect to be thrown a million things all at once on a salary job and you will have 80 hour weeks sometimes. Basically a south korean company whom disregards labor laws. So your 45k-55k a year job really is half that because you work twice the hours for that pay. The work life balance despite all the time off doesn't work because then when your back from vacation you have 3x more work to catchup with time lost. Your doing work reports all night and manager calls you after normal business hours asking for information. They entrap their employees as well and i will be seeking legal action for the overtime not paid and abuse of labor laws in Florida.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage. It never helps the company and helps to get good people fired. Experience is valuable and in this economy quality employees are hard to come by. Focus on helping your team not making them feel spied on, or constantly in fear.

    I have been working at Samsung Group full-time

    Pros

    Budgets are available if you have an appropriate cause. Excellent benefits, especially health coverage. Good support for travel.

    Cons

    Money/Profit obsessed company (but that makes them successful) Lots of politics, meetings, and endless reports & reports of reports. Korean business culture and hierarchy, even in the USA. After hours drinking expected. Demands of managers or their bosses trump any customer request. Expect to drop everything when upper management from Korea visits. If you are not Korean, you will not make much progress. Use this company as a stepping stone. Management changes every year in December, so there is yearly turmoil and disorganization until the new boss settles in.

    Advice to Management

    Need more humility.

    I worked at Samsung Group full-time

    Pros

    Compensation was good. It is certainly good to have in resume as big name, branding.

    Cons

    Always pushed by HQ to release something, so always had to work till late, including weekends. It seemed that people were always tense, not much team work.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say - the company is too big, my organization is too small.
