How’s Samsung Austin in terms of wlb and tc ? I’ve heard about massive layoffs recently and people suggesting not to go there. Wanted to here from people there especially cpu/gpu teams ?

    Samsung Austin has some wonderful people and it’s a great place to learn and grow. Work life balance should be decent as they have a proven IP that needs some incremental work over time. The CPU and GPU teams are intact — some streamlining was in order due to change in strategy, but there is a solid multi year roadmap that involves both these IPs.

      lol you gotta be kidding me, work life balance is decent because nobody does work there is way too much nepotism and leadership just tries to keep money to themselves. Also if you go read articles or see it yourself they have stopped competing with qualcomm now too because they couldn’t keep up, now they need to survive against other IP designers

    Why would you go to Samsung. Stay away, unless you're korean and want to work in that type of culture.

    I guess it depends on which team you work for . Atleast the team I work for (CPU) , you will come across some of the smartest and hard-working people . I do agree that documentation is scarce but otherwise I feel like have learnt a lot over the years here. As far as promotions is concerned , atleast in junior levels ( ~5 YOE) , I have only seen merit be recognized and rewarded. There are weeks I have worked more but otherwise , my manager cares about my weekends.

    It ain’t bad and the CPU team hasn’t been affected by the layoffs. What job profile are you interviewing for?

    At this stage, I would suggest you to stick to intel if you want to work on GPU. Also I don’t Samsung GPU is hiring anybody. For CPU, it’s business as usual though.
