    I worked at Samsung Group

    Pros

    Current Brand Image ; Location in a Metro and on the ring road ; Transportation ( Bus) and Lunch Provided

    Cons

    Do not value employees/people
    Poor work-life balance
    A lot of Office Politics
    Incompetent Management
    Lay Offs - Especially in Samsung Research India, Bangalore -- It is done in a very different way -- Your Appraisals / Ratings are spoilt and then forced to resign . Hire in Excess ; then do this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people ( Employees ) well. Koreans are Not the Superior Race --- That is a Pathetic thought --- There are people much better than you. Value your employees and you will grow well - Else Decline is certain.
