    Keep telling you there's room to,advance. When positions are available then management outsources for the new positions that open up. Poor communication. management expects a lot and does very little training.

    Pros

    Great people in the US office! A fun opportunity to learn about the Korean culture. Good healthcare and insurance package.

    Cons

    It can become very frustrating when orders come from the Korean headquarters. The culture clash is obvious and can sometimes make business situations difficult.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - company is doing well so the name value on the resume is high
    - pay is decent compared to other tech companies in Korea
    - company is trying to adopt more flexible culture i.e. flex-hour

    Cons

    - decision making is rigidly top-down ; top-management mandate rules the business decisions even though they're not the most optimal ones
    - samsung can do better in terms of diversity (gender, race, etc)
    - there're lots of ethical questions around the huge influence of the chairman family
