In order to house their more than 250,000 employees, the electronics giant has built its own city just outside Seoul. Today we’re learning about the city that Samsung built.
The Samsung Group, which includes Samsung Electronics and Samsung Life Insurance among others, has an annual revenue of 208 billion dollars, accounting for 17% of South Korea’s total GDP. Though it has been plagued by controversy in recent years, it is by far one of the largest corporations on Earth.
