    Pros

    As a sales manager in headquarter located in Korea, I worked with so many various IT companies such as Amazon, Apple, Sony etc. Everyone knows Samsung that has been leading many industries(Mobile, TV, Display, Semiconductor etc). So, that is more than just a privilege. If you want, you have many career opportunities and compensation is overall better than any other competitors. Work & Life balance is getting better. What you've probably heard about it is rumors that applied long time ago. Working culture is getting global as well.

    Cons

    hardly found as long as you are willing to live and work in Korea.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward to global culture standard so that the company becomes global company.
