Approves of CEO

Pros

They are working on some really cutting edge technologies. The management is understanding and trying, but the work has to get done. Generally flexible in terms of daily schedule. You can work from home some days if needed.

Cons

Samsung Telecom America is the offshore for Samsung Korea and they get treated like that. The work has to get done. You will face some unrealistic deadline. You may face some lack of information sharing situations.

Advice to Management

They need to push back in terms of schedules and information shared.

    Pros

    Amazing Product Development team
    World Class Supply Chain organization
    Massive Internal Information systems

    Cons

    No hiring excellence criteria
    Lack of trust on the human resource
    Manufacturing Plant management style
    Zero Marketing Capabilities, the marketing plan consist on reducing the price.
    Overall disrespect from Koreans to locals.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up is the 21st century, high employee rotation will eventually hurt the growth. Be a real global organization. The talent market knows how tough is to work at Samsung, it is hard to find real talent willing to put up with the management culture and style.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The Standards Research Lab has a very strong research team and a dynamic environment. The living expense in Texas is low.

    Cons

    The team is relatively small compare to the Samsung's research arm in Korea. But the group has been growing very fast in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I would like to say is to make the internship program bigger and bigger. I am happy to see this is happening.
