I worked at Samsung Research America as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

This was a great opportunity to get to know overall market and technology trend that are going on currently. Also, experienced senior colleagues were helpful in helping me out to learn skills.

Cons

I worked as a contractor so I did not receive any compensation packages, healthcare benefits, or paid vacation.

    I worked at Samsung Research America

    Pros

    Interesting topics (if you look for them), but opportunity to "shine" is limited due to the management philosophy.
    Samsung name will open doors when working with partners.
    Broad spectrum of technologies and markets to potentially work on.

    Cons

    Near zero empowerment - only goal is to please HQ no matter what
    "Dispatch" managers from HQ run the place just like it was Korea
    Poor communication w/ Korea HQ makes it difficult to make progress
    Local office is managed in Korean style - can be shocking/harsh to US workers

    Pros

    it is a well-known company worldwide and have good products.

    Cons

    the manager dominate the whole group by using his very subjective power and opinions. no smile on group member's face. everybody just come here for work, no fun, routine job for living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    act like a top-tier company from an open and democratic country. USA is not Korea.
