Micromanagement and Lack of Freedom

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
At one point, I used to enjoy waking up and coming to work, but now I sit and watch the clock and thats not the type of person I am. The benefits such as incentives have been taken away, the boss believes the best way to sucess is through micromanagement, staff need to fill in their hourly activities on a sheet. Boss constantly expects more, recognition isn't given.

Pros

The staff

Cons

Everything

Great company to learn

Enjoyable in learning new technologies, Work life.balance can be a challenge. Remuneration above industry standards. Long hours required at times and must handle stress.

Rigid management but fun brand to worl for

Only there for a year. Long hours and lots of admin work - fun events and training. Needs someone with thick skin and one that doesn't mind long hours and working on weekends and public holidays

I would go back tomorrow

I loved every aspect of working for Samsung, but would not recommend it for lazy, non team players. You must be able to take pressure and work 247, die to the International space in which we worked

Pros

Salary, fun, high energy, intellectually challenging

Cons

Lack of family life, can wear you out

Very productive and engaging environment

It was one of the best working environments I've ever worked in. There is always room for growth. The management team is very hands on and always willing to teach fellow staff members. Fun environment and great team members

Tipical cooperate environmemt with no balance to work and life.

Super stressfull environment and your family will take the back seat. Managers dont take responsibility you get drilled for hard and managers walk away with the paycheck. No loyalty to you as a worker It's all about being loyal to the company. It's a real rat race environment.

Great place to work

In samsung you very quickly learn to handle different staff members and how to motivate them to sell more and the limitations put on a staff member by the channel they report to

Samsung is the right company to join and be a team member

There is always a good reason to be a Samsung team member. In my experience there we were like one family. It was good to interact and articulate the different tasks where the level of technology remains a beacon of success.

Hierachial and outdated

For a leading electronics company who push for efficiency and performance, most systems are cumbersome and take very long to navigate. The culture is very fast paced and performance based. If you're good at doing what you're told, then you will be great here, if you're a free thinker and innovator, then maybe consider another place to work.
