    Pros

    PTO is relatively easy to get. If you stay on top of emails and communications it's a pretty easy job. You get out what you put in.

    Cons

    Anything can happen at any time and the expectations for delivery are pretty unforgiving.

    I have been working at Samsung Electronics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You have a job and get paid twice a month

    Cons

    You are micromanaged the entire time you are there. The new Brokerage management is very over bearing and likes to do everything themselves, must have 100% control at all times. There are no SOP's in place, just however they decide to do it and beat you over the head with it. By this I mean extreme micromanaging to the point they count how many times you have to use the restroom. Most extreme case of mistrust I have ever encountered in my career. Asians need only apply this is truly all they want working for them.

    Advice to Management

    When management fosters an attitude of 100% control what is the point in constantly hiring people, they will all find other jobs because this is not a good environment. Other companies have went in house with brokerage and failed, what makes you think you are so different? who ever applies here must be robotic drone that follows all commands or you are targeted for harassment.
