Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Samsung Electronics America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Compensation was competitive, bonus was pretty good, they are making profits. But no stocks, it's not traded in US exchanges.

Cons

Complete chaos, nobody knows what is happening, why it is happening. Probably manufacturing in Korea knows what they are doing, but have no clue on mobile software. People are expected to follow orders without asking any questions. No respect for people, you will get calls at 3:00 am in the night and would be casually asked to do something useless without even acknowledging this is an awkward hour and the request could be done two weeks later with no impact to anything.

Advice to Management

Come to Silicon Valley and see how companies are run
