    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time

    Pros

    I got invited onboard for a great team, and have no doubt that I will build a good career here as long as things make sense.

    Cons

    It seems HR can be pretty inflexible at the company. Originally hired through the NJ office, I accepted the offer with little knowledge in the cost of living in the Bay Area. When I brought up with my need to get support with the cost, my HR rep said "If you didn't think the offer was good, you shouldn't have accepted it!" without further discussion on how I might be able to get help. Not sure if that's something an HR person should say to anybody, especially when an issue most people can relate to was being discussed.

    Advice to Management

    For the candidates and new hires, HR is the face of the company. Train the reps to maintain an appropriate attitude throughout the course of interactions.

    I worked at Samsung Electronics America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working independently but followed often

    Cons

    Having to stand in stores that do not have enough personnel to communicate with.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time trusting that your employees are doing what is best for the company and for their territory. Do not MICRO MANAGE. Samsung has a lot of great things about it and going for it. Management has ruined many great careers and reputations due to poor business relationship approaches.

    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    401k, benefits, exposure to great products, discounts are awesome

    Cons

    poor work life balance -
    • even if HR institutes work from home or early release policies, management doesn't let you take them.
     • PTO is also scrutinized, and managers expect you to still be available during PTO
    • lots of office politics
    • all about "perception" of hard working ethics , more time in the office = good employee
    • uncomfortable working environment

    Advice to Management

    more mandatory policies for work from home, PTO rather than "suggestions"
    more diversity of middle and upper management
    more motivation for employees
