    I worked at Samsung Electronics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for a part time sales position. Schedule is updated weekly and flexible but you must be available to work on weekends. A good environment to work in except you have to be on your feet all day.

    Cons

    There is a lot of things to learn every week about their programs and the company. Sometimes these information are not utilized during work due to the lack of customers traffic. People slack off and there is not much room for growth.

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

    Pros

    Salary. Very saturated salaries. (that could be a good thing and a bad thing) in the end that could work against you.

    Cons

    Koreans run the place. You answer to them whether you do or not. If you are not Korean they don't care for you. They run that company plain and simple. They can come in as a subordinate and still be above you in rank, even the lowest ranking Korean is above a higher ranking American upper manager.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly. Time to let go of galvanized upper management who are only sitting there taking up space, not really contributing to making Samsung a better brand. Way too many people 10+ years just sitting around playing politics that need to be gone. More smoke breaks than actual work being done!!
