    Pros

    The strategic decision is made very speedy and it can follow up the other competitors very aggressively.

    Cons

    It has not allowed any failure even though it tells it will....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It should be more creative by allowing some failure.

    Former Employee - Intern in Austin, TX

    I worked at Samsung Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Samsung has a very talented group of capable engineers with a lot of resources behind it. The Austin CPU group was relaxed and easy-going, though I heard that the memory/fab center was much more rigid and strict. You could tell that the company was investing a lot in terms of personnel and resources.

    Cons

    Samsung was hiring people from all the major companies, so there were some culture clashes between ex-AMD/Intel/IBM employees. Some 'clique-ness' existed when it came to presenting ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve the culture and flow of ideas.
