    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.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    They are working on some really cutting edge technologies. The management is understanding and trying, but the work has to get done. Generally flexible in terms of daily schedule. You can work from home some days if needed.

    Cons

    Samsung Telecom America is the offshore for Samsung Korea and they get treated like that. The work has to get done. You will face some unrealistic deadline. You may face some lack of information sharing situations.

    Advice to Management

    They need to push back in terms of schedules and information shared.
