I have been working at Samsung Research America as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Subsidized meals: there was a cafeteria where all meals, which were pretty decent, were 50% off
-Perks: discounts on devices and in my case, a free intern gift!
-Salary: definitely competitive; I had a prior offer and they just asked how much the salary was there and increased it

Cons

-Management: In my experience, some of (though definitely not all) the management has been especially abrasive and arrogant. There was a manager who I worked near but not under and I could constantly hear her loudly expressing her frustrations with those working for and around her

Advice to Management

Choose some of your directors a little more wisely. From my time here, there was one in particular (thankfully not mine) who continually belittled and insulted those around her
