    I have been working at Samsung Semiconductor Inc (US) full-time

    Pros

    The gym, cafe, and chill zone arcade are nice.

    Cons

    Culture is opressive. Little autonomy. A lot of micromanagement. New senior leadership is dispatched from Korea every two years and rarely attempts to understand the locals as things must be done the Korean way. The CEO visits the site once or twice per year. The local VPs are not allowed to make any significant decisions or improvements. Tenure is valued over competence or productivity. A very challenging place to work.
