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

    Pros

    Great Pay, Great Benefits and Products

    Cons

    Hierarchical, which would be fine if leadership were stronger. Nepotism is rampant with a healthy dose of extremely, unethical and unprofessional behavior from Sr. Leadership on down. There is a sickness within Samsung, that has been compounded, from previous Sr. Directors to the newest leadership and offices.

    Advice to Management

    Do your due diligence, audit the last few years of new offices, teams and divisions. Work on collaboration, transparency and hire qualified people. Respect all of your employees and clean up the corruption. Hopefully then you can keep talent as opposed to losing it. Samsung has so much potential, but there needs to be some major cultural and professional changes to right the ship.
