rewarding, ambitious, work long hours.

Engineer II (Current Employee) Austin, TX (US)

ProsSamsung is one of the top electronics companies in the world. There's constantly new technology devices, so you get to be a part of the next big thing to hit the news in several months. The pay is very reasonable and the bonuses are pretty amazing nowadays! Top health benefits and unmatched 401K matching.

ConsThe expectations are very high! You work long hours. Work-Life balance needs improvement though it depends which department you work in and recently it has gotten a lot better than 5 years ago. Being a manufacturing facility, the mindset is different as if you were part of the actual device development or R&D department. Also, it takes time to move up in the company. It's more determined how long you've been there rather than your credentials and work performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key. Acknowledge your peers and positive attitude will be maintained.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
