    So many other companies that not only pay a lot more than Samsung but also work like 3 hours a day max.

      It's always been like that. Was there more than 10 years, and most I ever did was 30 hours a week.

      But it's also upto you. As my manager always told me. Wlb at Microsoft is entirely upto you, so that is one area I never want to hear complaints about.

    I didn’t get this either. I left Amazon earlier this year for a smaller company and it’s been great. No one call, 8 hours a day

    Maybe it’s you. You should work on your wlb skills. Push back

      Yeah my wife interviewed there was so terrible and she’s in benefits. Said they have to be on call and on weekends. 24/7. All the Glassdoor reviews we reviewed from engineers to marketers were horrible for wlb

      I mean can they force somebody to work every day? Is that even legal? If I could not really manage to set expectations right I would leave and accept TC cuts who cares about money if you are not having a life?

      I would avoid any Asian company or team. Live to work culture.

    Good for you but isn’t Samsung a pretty shitty work env in general? There’s a lot of companies with solid work life balance

      I don't trust that. Probably paid marketing.
