    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good (not great) compensation. Great benefits. My work life balance has always been exceptionally good, although I’ve heard of Sales-related teams and our Korean staff having awful hours. The people, for the most part, are really nice. The Chelsea offices are convenient and beautiful—slightly less fun to commute to NJ, but Samsung has let me work from home most days even before COVID.

    Cons

    Wide variance in experiences. I’ve heard some people who work 12+ hour days, some people who slack and get away with it. Everything is silo’ed. Very little cross-departmental work. Compensation is good, but not compared to other tech companies (Samsung comp. is probably more in line with IBM vs Apple). SEA also takes marching orders from Korea, so sometimes little autonomy in making the right business decisions vs what you’re told to do. Lots of young people, and then tons of dinosaurs—again, huge variance. Lots of people who work at Samsung and then jump to Spotify, etc., but then tons of older staff from RadioShack, PC Richards, etc., which is not ideal.

    If you can't adapt to things changing on a minute by minute basis you will never make it at Samsung Electronics America. It is a lot of work but if you make it at Samsung you can make it in any company.
