Featured Review

Current Intern - Junior Security Analyst

I have been working at IBM

Pros

Culture and environment, support, innovation.

Cons

Resources, pressure/demands of a large, global company

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)
