Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Apple full-time

Pros

really supportive team and very nice managers

Cons

not really many cons keep up the great work.

Former Contractor - Digital Strategist

I worked at Samsung Electronics for more than 8 years

Pros

Worked with more than 100 companies, all with pros and cons, but Samsung is by far the most dynamic one, in a "crazy", fearless but still highly positive way

Cons

It burns out some people who are not in the similar calibre.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! (and dramatically increase the level of your internal education, especially regarding digital)
