    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Its not hard to list the benefits of working in a multi-billion dollar,world market leading,iPhone killing,global organization.The high salary,the innovation,the coolness is all part of the experience.When the world makes a new technological advancement,we are already a step ahead.Add playing with funky cool gadgets and future tech.A place of opportunities for entrepreneurs,technology fans and geeks. P.S: And you get to play with all the new GALAXIES.

    Cons

    However Samsung only accepts the very best.Working is the only way to move forward here.The time-off policies could have been better,as well as their treatment of junior workers.Salary is only high for those who personally know or have contacts with the CEO (He needs to go). Samsung also has racial problems with Asian,and non-Korean workers.This needs to change.To the public,Samsung seems a far less friendly company than Apple.

    I have been working at Samsung Electronics America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company cares about their employees, even through this challenging times. Growth path may be limited if you can relocate, but they give you all the tools and opportunities to move up if you work at it. Decent work life balance, but prepared to work. This isn't a kick back job. Flexibility in being able to schedule as you see fit, flex times as well. Fantastic benefits, some of the best I've had in 20 years in Wireless. Good perks and chances to travel. Love the people I work with, and even at the highest level, they care about their people. Communication is open and honest, and they accept feed forward as well. Training and coaching really can set you up for growth. I love working at Samsung.

    Cons

    Again, opportunities to move up could be limiting based on where you live, and what area you are in. Sometimes the work can pull you away from work life balance, but it typically happens during naturally heavier times like launches and holidays. Lastly, could benefit from a few extra perks other wireless manufacturers have in terms of deeper discounts for employees, and carrier partnerships on monthly billing, but that's just being picky.
