    Pros

    Very many talented people at this office

    Cons

    HQ has too many back and forth non-essential requirement changes that end up in countless/pointless efforts.
    The fast expansion has left Samsung HQ with too many junior people managing projects/products/tasks that they don't really have qualified experiences/knowledge for.
    HQ is not giving this particular office enough room/freedom to really drive a product (lack of trust or fear of loss of control seem to be the key issue here)

    Advice to Management

    Competing with big players in the IT field is hard enough, lets really spend time working together with everyone across the entire company.
    Let people with relevent industry experiences take over the projects/products instead of being fixated on placing people for the sake of maintaining control over oversea operations.
    Lots of measures to save small money here and there while big dollars are spent not necessarily without risk of having no return at all. I'd say many of the small money saved are not worthwhile and they are causing more frictions on productivity.

    Pros

    Incredible technology. Very ambitious company. Will dominate for the foreseeable future. Lot of opportunity internally to advance. Treat employees and junior staff very well. Generous with social events and team building. Often provide gifts to all staff at times of key local holidays. Reasonably philanthropic.

    Cons

    Focus on reporting back to HQ as a priority versus dealing with key customer/partner or other local market focus and priorities. An over abundance of employees sent from HQ to regions to monitor staff performance. Rotational management from HQ sent to run subsidiaries do not always possess appropriate skills or the time to adjust to the local scenario.

    Advice to Management

    More attention should be paid to local clients, partners and customers and less attention on HQ's expectations.
