    Koreans shout at Indians
    good workers cannot hold on for much long

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

    Pros

    All technical teams are very supportive.
    Most of the team leads are very much supportive.
    You can learn a lot if you are willing to learn.

    Cons

    Don't trust HR people they are cheaters.
    They cheats all IITies in term of salary.
    All IIties are getting different salaries and new IIties are getting nothing as compared to old iities.
    They treat new iities and ISM dhanbad as tier 2 colleges.
    Even tier 1 that means old Iities are getting different packages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR Peoples If you continue in the same fashion one day you will bring SRI-N to ground.
    HR guys listen to your technical heads they are more educated and more intelligent than you

    #HR : instead of posting long essay-status on Facebook, taking useless snap shot. Kindly pay attention to exit inteviews.

    Your are hiring more than 450 engineers very year and almost half of them leaves you in less than one year. Instead you hire half and treat them kindly and equally.

    Kindly treat at Iitians equally.

    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Very challenging and interesting problems to solve. 25% discount on Samsung products that too on dealer's price. Will get a lot to learn.

    Cons

    Technically illiterate team leads/managers. They force you to work like donkeys. You can't provide your inputs. You are not allowed to talk to Korean managers. Most of the team leads and managers are dumb and stubborn. They try to hide their technical ignorance from Korean managers using your talent and knowledge. If you get good boss then it is fine. Otherwise you will fail yourself both on personal ground and professional commitment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove current leads and managers and bring some good brains.
