    Pros

    travel and korean girls :)
    i really feel the opportunities to see the world as a samsung sales exec are exceptional.

    Cons

    very hierarchical, no going up if you're not korean. i found the top level jobs stacked with nationals, and got the feeling i didn't speak their language and never could.

    Advice to Management

    respect europeans and americans. especially their ability to innovate process as well as product!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The only reason I can think of is the security in a steady (and somewhat decent...) paycheck in tough times. Base salary is the only compensation you can be confident in. Shady accounting and a constantly moving target make any incentives based on Management Objective basically unatainable.

    Cons

    Samsung is lacking; in professional courtesy, work to life balance, Management competence and overall employee morale. Postivie reinforcement on a job well done is never given. This is a company that believes it's a waste of time to celebrate the milestones achieved.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to Korea, press for more local control of business, end the micro-management from across the ocean.
