They offer an excellent medical/dental/vision coverage plan. Also offered are, quarterly and annual review bonus, onsite cafeteria, gym, nurse, and a good 401K program with company matching.
Excellent vacation and health benefits. The out of pocket costs have been increasing a little over time, but still seem very reasonable compared to many of my peers. 401k matching exists, but could be better.
I was an inten and I liked it
The best thing at SAS is the benefits package. They do have a 401k and many healthcare plans for families.
Free lunches! Gym on site that you can work out at during lunch or before or after work.
The health benefits are good, even if you go with the cheapest plan it covers quite a bit. The vacation time is good - better than most other companies in industry. 401k matching.
time off is above average
The benefits at Samsung are relatively good for Engineering positions in Austin and very good for local technician positions. Working for Samsung for 4 years, I've had as high as a 24% 12-month performance bonus, and as low as 4.5%. The best medical plan (PPO) is only $40 / month for an individual and covers dental, vision, and medical. Also, there are always a variety of deals to be had at hotels and car rentals by throwing around the Samsung name, but they're not "official" benefits. The biggest complaints are the lack of onsite or reimbursed child care (even for shift workers), and the 2/3 of a mile that you'll end up walking from your car to your desk and back, each day. While some of the items listed below are not completely covered by Samsung: • The tuition assistance is only covered for technicians looking to get their bachelor's degree in computer science or engineering. • That the gym membership is onsite... and bad... and your spouse can't really use it. • The charitable gift matching is only offered once a year for a two to three week period • Samsung does in fact offer an employee discount, but the items are drop shipped from Korea, taking two weeks to receive it, and you can usually get the item cheaper at Best Buy or Fry's on their sales. All in all, most of Samsung's benefits are very good: just keep in mind all of the reviews of the company's work-life balance and low salaries... the benefits are as high as they need to be to keep people from leaving in droves.
The company benefits were awesome. The premiums were cheap and four weeks of PTO. 401 k was fully vested from day one.
Benefits are the best thing that is going for Samsung Austin Semiconductor. Dental plan is A+ far better than average. Health Care plan was also better than average. I would have giving them a 5 star rating but most recently the best 100% Health Care plan was dropped so I reduced the rating by 1 star. That might be a result of Obama Care Law not sure but it still was worth mentioning.
