    Pros

    Not many, only Package, cab facility and Product coupons

    Cons

    Management level bad. Some worst managers are there ........they dont know technical value...for them everything is simple....i am very sure they does not know any thing technically.....for protecting themselves they can do any thing....under working some managers it is hell and your job will not be secure....many people affected because of one manager.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advicing to management does not work. Because higher management and HR dont have any etiquittes in judging the employee.

    I worked at Samsung Group full-time

    Pros

    - Very advance in technology
    - Very secure job ... they dont fire anyone in any case
    - Better pay structure, decent benefits
    - Brand

    Cons

    - Full of morons, particularly at the middle management layer
    - Work culture is dictated by no of hrs worked, not by quality.
    - Dynamically changing requirements, not a company to make long term carrier with
    - Great on site policy is now screwed up ... No benefits there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - If you want great people to stay longer, make sure you give such an atmosphere.
    - Working on weekends never ever a good sign, it just shows poor planning
    - There is a difference between running a mill and maintain a R&D firm

    I have been working at Samsung Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Onsite Chances , especially to South Korea.
    2. Can get nice Salary , if you are a workaholic.
    3. Big Brand gives lot of benefits in further job switches.

    Cons

    1. Average hike , if you are an average worker while average means 10-12 hrs of work @ project releases and 9 hrs daily .
    2. works mainly on Cpp and very less automation.
    3. New Management changing policies in a very bad way, not at all beneficial to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Feasibility study and proper resource Planning before Product Releases.
    2. Employees should be given with Task Ownership.
    3. Salary Structure and facilities were better before new management came into action.
