    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!!
