    A smattering of talented junior/midlevel people trapped in a hellish prison of inept leadership and cultural impasse.

    Pros

    **This is specifically for Samsung UXCA/SDA in San Francisco**
    They pay you a lot of money.
    The hours are very much 9-5.
    They have great recruiting.

    Cons

    **This is specifically for Samsung UXCA/SDA in San Francisco**
    You will never release a product in the market. They do not– and probably never will– have any support from headquarters in Korea to actually make products. They are either a tax loophole or an ideas factory that has no say in actual shipping products.
    You will be asked to do redundant or nonsensical projects.
    Leadership will constantly tell you what a great and unique position the lab is in.
    Atmosphere is peculiar at best and toxic/poisonous at worst.
    Any additional bonuses or compensation will have 2+ year vesting clauses that trap you once you realize you must escape.

    Advice to Management

    **This is specifically for Samsung UXCA/SDA in San Francisco**
    Stop pretending everything is ok. 70% attrition is not normal.
    Stop pushing out the creative leaders who don't agree with you.
