Former Employee - Engineering Technician II in Austin, TX (US)

I worked at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time (less than an year)

Pros

This is a good company to work for. Quarterly bonuses are nice. Reward for having to work holidays if you're on one of the 12 hour shifts make up for having to work those days, and having an excelerated work week is NICE! Who can complain about having a guarranteed 3 day weekend every week, then a 4 day weekend every other week. That was my favorite schedule that I've ever worked. The stipend for the onsite cafeterias that were offered while I was there were nice too.

Cons

If you're a salaried employee (not hourly) you will be expected to work far beyond the typical 40 hour work week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't take employees for granted and perhaps to a better job as to the over achievers who truely to go beyond the call of duty.

    Do as I Say mentality when it comes to new procedures. Bickering and arguments between shift that managers seem to not recognize.

    I have been working at Samsung Austin Semiconductor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, great benefits, quarterly bonuses, good pay, constantly changing (which can be good and bad!), senior management is working to change the previously abusive culture

    Cons

    constantly changing, Korea always seems to use the Christmas season to roll out new fabs/technology, work/life balance for most engineering positions is nonexsistant, TR position is impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing for the culture changes! Most of us come to work to support our families but when we are expected to be 24x7 call those same families puch for us to find another place to work.
