    Communication gap between HQ and america, management expectation is all over the place and seems very unorganized, only thing that matters is to get the work done, in any which way possible leading to a lot of disorganized/inefficient and sub par work quality.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Samsung Semiconductor Inc (US) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The HR department bends over backwards to bring stress reducer activities to its employees. Monetary compensation package is good, benefits are on par with most companies in the Valley. The company truly does care about a work/life balance and for many of the departments they seem to be achieving it. However, if you are in a group that is always overworked obviously these attempts fall short.

    Cons

    Entire site is an open air environment to foster collaboration. This just doesn't work if you are coding or designing as there are too many distractions.

    Advice to Management

    Fight harder for permanent head count. Contractors are great for filling holes but having to retrain a new contractor every time a contract expires is not productive.
