    I worked at Samsung SDS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good medical and 401k match Nice coworkers(even management), subsidized cafeteria lunch, fun activities (Halloween party, ping pong & other Korean game tournaments, volunteer days) Christmas gift ($400 Samsung gift card or choose from preselected Samsung products) It’s a pleasure to work with the IT teams on the second floor.

    Cons

    B2B projects are all very unprofitable and mostly a waste of time. They mostly resell low margin Samsung devices. Too dependent on business from Samsung Electronics and that business continues to decline. Management has the best intentions but is unable to build the right products with the right features the market needs.

    Pros

    Very good health insurance. Some very nice co-workers

    Cons

    Racial and gender discrimination is so widespread all around the company. If you are Caucasian, or Korean male who can speak Korean, this is the place for you. Korean is the only language for a lot of the communication. Sweatshop, never work smart, using a lot of outdated technologies. Totally controlled by HQ.
