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

    Pros

    Once Samsung overtook Nokia for #1 Globally and fully developed their line of Galaxy smart products (Galaxy S; Tab; Note) the new American CMO was allowed to spend serious marketing dollars on multiple media campaigns, in order to compete w/ Apple.

    Cons

    Samsung's culture is forced upon American workers through South Korean dispatchers (closed fraternity, with a military management style feel). Samsung always works hard, however, Samsung often doesn't work smart.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire very experienced American workers, but allow them to tell you what you need to know (without retaliation) vs. what you (Korea HQ) wants to hear.

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

    Pros

    Hands off approach,bosses do not micro manage you. You are given a task and it's up to you to finish it.Office is also very nicely designed

    Cons

    Hard to advance, general lack of procedures. They do not train you,you are kind of left on your own to figure out what you're doing, which isn't bad if you can learn fast by yourself.
