    I have been working at Samsung Semiconductor Inc (US)

    Pros

    The Company offers a great and competitive benefits package. Benefits not only include Medical/Dental/Vision but a 50% subsidized cafeteria, free lunches (at times), a full Gym (memberships if not a local employee). The Company is stable and has been around a long time. Samsung is very diverisified and will be able to recover quicker from the economic conditions. The company tries to emphasize GWP (Great Work... Place) by having employees become part of teams to show community involvement. The company has a flexible work schedule. The company allows telecommuting for some positions and other positions are allowed part time telecommuting.

    Cons

    The company is Highly cultural - Koreans do not respect Americans. Internal Communication is very limited - Koreans always find out what is happening first. Sometimes the Americans and other cultures are made aware of issues before they happen. It makes for very difficult working conditions always trying to put out fires instead of being proactive. The company expects employees to be available 24/7 - regardless... of whether the individual is salaried or hourly. They don't want to pay for the overtime of the Salaried individuals yet expect them to work until a project is completed. A lot of processes are unethical yet they continue because it is easier and they believe in it.
