    I worked at Samsung Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Once Samsung overtook Nokia for #1 Globally and fully developed their line of Galaxy smart products (Galaxy S; Tab; Note) the new American CMO was allowed to spend serious marketing dollars on multiple media campaigns, in order to compete w/ Apple.

    Cons

    Samsung's culture is forced upon American workers through South Korean dispatchers (closed fraternity, with a military management style feel). Samsung always works hard, however, Samsung often doesn't work smart.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire very experienced American workers, but allow them to tell you what you need to know (without retaliation) vs. what you (Korea HQ) wants to hear.

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

    Pros

    Team meetings are short and very productive, (no boring endless meetings) People are friendly, no matter what nationality are they

    Cons

    Some managers are really pain in the... Some managers goes that far that they want micromanagement on daily report. It takes sometimes over 1 hour to write the report to the manager... silly

    Advice to Management

    Change the company culture and let the people idea to flow! Don't be on every employee neck and once you start with an idea, just go with it, make the path as straigh as possible not with back and forth left and right move...
