Approves of CEO

I have been working at Samsung Research America full-time for more than a year

Pros

They are genuinely seeking to improve the experience of employees. Salary and benefits are generous (like many companies in Silicon Valley). They've bred a great culture in my team, as I get along

Cons

Some business decisions can be opaque and IT systems convoluted due to HQ being in Korea.
