I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- job security
-big name on your resume
-smart coworkers
-if you're interested in telecommunication, this is the place you can explore your interests
-salary and benefits are great even if you compare to the big companies in US

Cons

- if your manager is bad... because of job security, managers won't leave the company. So it's faster to leave the company and get a new job than to change the culture of Samsung..
- there are many smart people, but some teams are consist of contracts who were hired urgently to fill the replacement.. and some of them are really bad...unprofessional, unqualified. but with the job security, they stay there..
- no manager review
- a lack of diversity

Advice to Management

Samsung really need to consider to let some employee go.
There're too many unqualified employees including the managers.
It will save a lot of cost.

    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't find one pro when it comes to Samsung

    Cons

    This was the worst place i have worked in over 20 years. I was senior level management. i witnessed physical altercations, yelling in the office and horrible treatment to US based employees. The "Korean" management team has no respect for what underlings have to say. No input is acceptable. I was harassed daily and even though i documented it and brought it to HR several times nothing was done. I was told that I could not hire gay, Chinese, Middle Eastern, people past the age of 50. When reported this to HR, again, nothing was done. I also witnessed taping meetings without the customers consent- we are talking larger US based companies.

    Advice to Management

    Wipe out Korean Management and put in American based executives. The Korean managers only care what position they will get when they go back to Korea and have Zero knowledge of US business.
