    I have been working at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    I just started a month ago. The Benicia are great and the work is fun! I've read a lot of other negative reviews before starting. But seeing it first hand I think some people don't like to work hard.

    Cons

    My commute is a bit long.

    Pros

    Great experience. CEO is outstanding. Strongly supports us military personal. Salaries are good. Healthcare is amazing. Hope to retire from here.

    Cons

    Culture is hard on young Americans. Middle management is not as positive. Glassdoor is not reflecting Samsung Austin but reflects American reaction to discipline. This is why military background employees are happier.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up good work.

    I have been working at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked as an engineer, supervisor and manager for 2 American based, 1 European based and 1 Korean based semiconductor manufacturing companies over a 35+ year career. Samsung Austin Semiconductor (SAS) is, by far, the best company in almost every comparable category. The long-term vision for growth at the Austin site makes me wish I were closer to the beginning of my career. Culturally speaking, SAS has the most diversified staff of people at every level and position with which I have ever worked. The opportunities to move up and around are very available. Salaries are very competitive. SAS, more than any company with which I have yet worked, strives to create the best work/life balance. Continuing educational opportunities are provided. The benefits package is very good and well-priced. SAS, more than any other company I have experienced gives back to the community in hundreds of ways and with thousands of dollars. I have worked at SAS for 7 years. I have filled several very enjoyable roles and worked on many very interesting and challenging projects with some of the best people from all over the planet. I came to the Austin area 20 years ago. My wife and I raised 7 children, putting them through the school system here. The culture, diversity and the values in this area make it one of the best places in the world to raise a family.

    Cons

    Seriously, I have sat staring at this box for 10 minutes racking my brain for anything that I would consider a real "Con" to working at SAS, but I have failed. Does that fact that the batteries in the auto paper towel dispensers drain to quickly count? I don't drink coffee so I can't give you a rating there, other than its free, along with tea and hot cocoa....

    Advice to Management

    You level of support combined with the level of allowed autonomy is very well balanced. Thank you.
