    Pros

    This was my first time as backend Sr. SDE role. I felt I was able to contribute towards back end improvements and to automation engineering. Great team and learning experience!

    Cons

    I felt seriously undermined as I had previously had very little LAMP experience but quickly overcame these shortcomings. Focused on areas which were my strong points and guided the team.

    I have been working at Samsung full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is easy. The people are laid back. Managers don't get on your case about much. Anyone can adapt to this place.

    Cons

    Management will never give you a clear cut answer. They beat around the bush. It's very segregated here. It's either your one of us or you're not. Many people quit because they are operating this like how they would work in Korea. They want you to get everything done, but don't want you to work over time.

    Advice to Management

    Be more direct like the old Korea. Don't be afraid. Be firm but affirmative. Be strict but fair. Reward the people who work hard, not reward the people who do no good for the company.
