Samsung Electronics has a culture problem that has shaken it to its core. Samsung is slipping on all aspects of technology development including the one area they have historically crushed all competitors, DRAM.
Samsung harbors deep-seated cultural atrocities that have gotten worse after the late Lee Kun Hee's fall. Jay Lee is anything but the leader at Samsung; he is being manipulated by HR veterans who are downright ignorant while obsessively controlling. Samsung's demise has been set in motion.
I have heard stories in Silicon Valley for years about Samsung's IP theft and brutal, anti-competitive tactics towards startups (strangling them and then buying them for pennies on the dollar). It's satisfying to see that ugly business practice/cultural issues eventually come back to bite them!
What is the source of the culture issue? The problems were articulated, but how did the fall from leadership position happen?
