    "Extremely corrupted environment."

    1.0
     

    I worked at Samsung Electronics America

    Pros

    Only offers visibility. Having this company on your résumé can be beneficial to your career, but the company in itself is extremely corrupted. Hiring process to evaluation to salary increase, you must be part of a network of very questionable minds to be paid decently and not feel threatened to lose your job.

    Cons

    They don’t like promoting people dedicated to their jobs. Lots of internal battles for power, privileges. Only hires people they know or close relatives. Experienced people are not welcome there. Incompetency is a trademark.
