Pros

buying consumer electronics at lower price? Awesome medical benefits.
The job offers opportunities to learn about the industry if one seeks out proactively.

Cons

low pay. very limited advancement opportunities.

Advice to Management

The management should be localized. Stop sending ex-pat from Korea. They don't understand the culture of this country.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The product speaks for itself. They have a great reputation because of what they put in the market. It also strikes me as the kind of place where providing that you are respected and uphold your responsibilities, you are pretty much guaranteed a job for as long as you wish to keep it.

    Cons

    The cultural barrier is awful for those who don't understand it. There is little to no communication about what is going on within the company between the higher-ups and lower level employees and even at times between the higher-ups themselves.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that they could easily boost the morale of employees by not consistently keeping them in the dark and treating them like kindergarteners. More than anything, upon hire I think that because of the heavy Korean influence on the company that American employees should be required to take a seminar on Korean culture as I think that Korean dispatchers should have the same requirement with taking a seminar on American culture. This would create much more of a tolerance and understanding between the two cultures rather than just a begrudging coexistence. There is no effort to co-mingle the two cultures. The segregation between the two is quite disheartening.

    Pros

    There is so much opportunity for improvement that if even a little bit occurs, Samsung could be a world-class employer.

    Cons

    Samsung tends to "bully" vendors and partners in markets where Samsung has dominance. While you can hope that people at these companies are able to separate the individual from the company, there is a chance that an employee's reputation in a particular industry will be affected by the actions fo the company, thus impacting their ability to move to another organization as feeely as they might otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Samsung should not formulate policies and procedures targeted at the "exceptions". While Samsung is a global company with varying degrees of risk depending on the country where they are doing business, not everyone is a North Korean spy or member of a Chinese gang out to defraud or ruin the company.
