    I worked at Samsung SDS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There really are none, in my opinion.

    Cons

    For me, the experience was horrific. Immature and incomplete products being created at HQ with little or no input from local territories. Lack of productive internal communication. Left the office daily feeling completely demotivated. Management lacked experience in western business practices.

    I worked at Samsung SDS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No reason to work here at all. Worst thing you will do to your career and to yourself. ***DON'T DO IT*** IT'S NOT WORTH IT.

    Cons

    Undeciplined, un-educated, ignorant, arrogant, bad products, bad management. Cunning, two faced. In-human. Don't value hard work. Everyone is disposable to them. Only know how to take. Don't know how to give. ***STAY CLEAR***

    I worked at Samsung SDS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Samsung brand name. Friendly colleagues who I feel sorry for. Nothing else, the place is a disaster. Avoid at all costs, going there was the biggest mistake I ever made.

    Cons

    Management has no integrity or morals and they will verbally and mentally abuse you daily. You will be treated as a second class citizen if you are not Korean. You will be blatantly lied to consistently. No established processes, clueless organisation. Full of desperate people who will do anything to survive. Mediocre products that are far behind the competion.
