    Why Samsung? There are many better companies out there in Bay area. If you get an offer only from Samsung with ML phd from Top 20 school, then something is not right.

      Working for Samsung is only meaningful when you work in Korea HQ and you are top exec.

      Look, that's exactly the problem. You don't know anyone (classmates alumni etc) working in that company, do you?

      Don’t go. If you aren’t Korean the ceiling is short.

    Run away from Samsung. Korean management has zero empathy and respect for engineers.
