    Advice to Management

    I worked as part of the Telecommunications Group as part of the Samsung/Best Buy partnership. The company had very aggressive goals (like, you were expected to sell more than what was in stock for a store on a day-to-day basis). Additionally, you were expected to be available to answer emails at pretty much any time they were sent, which could be in the middle of the night due to time difference. While I imagine working in other branches/departments might be better balanced, their retail program was a complete joke.

    Pros

    Pay was good as were benefits

    Cons

    Zero work life balance , too many meetings and busy work that seemed useless. Wake up to endless e mails or a conference call. Antiquated required training decks we were to push on retail partners for swag was a drain on relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Back off busy work. Take the daily time in traffic and travel into account.

    Pre-empt employees earlier with more details about the changes, as well as chances for raise/promotions.

    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.
