    I worked at Samsung Austin Semiconductor for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of intelligent and hard working employees. They had a positive atmosphere within my department. I felt cared for and was given a lot of responsibilities but not too much. They have a great cafeteria, two gyms, basketball courts, and a soccer field where you could meet more employees.

    Cons

    I saw that the higher position someone had, the more hours they usually worked. Things were always busy there and fast pace which could be good or bad.

    I worked at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Pay is above scale, only way to keep people on the golden handcuffs. Cafes are good.

    Cons

    Management is super PC, all that matters to your Manager is what is important to thier Manager. No trust. People treated like robots. HR is the worst, can't keep thier own staff.

    Advice to Management

    Flush the deadwood and start doing the hard work that matters - gaining people's trust.

      Former Employee - Procurement Specialist in Austin, TX

      I worked at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Full cafeteria/coffee bar on site, subsidized meals, 2 gyms and a running trail on site. Great healthcare benefits and generous PTO policy.

      Cons

      This is a very tactical purchasing role with limited opportunities for growth. All strategic and interesting type of work is done in Korea. The company culture is terrible, you are required to put tamper-proof stickers on your camera for security. No remote work, you have to stay at your desk from 8-5. Only one promotion per group and it takes 3 years minimum to get promoted. The culture is very backwards and there...
