What's it like working at Samsung? Heard a few horror stories but not sure if they're all true.

    One of the shittiest companies ever. Nobody has any idea of what to do, everybody running behind to get a patent and earn the bonus.
    Also, Korean culture is shitty. They work like donkeys and expect you also to be like that.

    @OP depends whether its SRA, SEA, or Semiconductor.
    SRA is shit as it's a cost center, totally dependent on HQ to fund them.
    SEA is marginally better as they are a profit center.

    if you are looking at SRA, I wouldn't go unless you are really desperate

      No clue. But I know at Samsung it's a top down culture, and Semiconductors is even more HQ driven.

    One of the worst companies as far as engineering practices go. Just does ad hocs shit.

    You cant question a Korean vp, irrespective of the dumbest input he will have for the product. Nobody thinks about the overall product, they are all trying to keep their basket empty.... this is called NR 0 in Samsung
