    Some Tech managers are not at all understanding and their IQ is very low, They are in Samsung for long period and its time that Samsung should say these tech manager bye bye .

    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.
