    I have been working at LG Mobile Phones full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Unfortunately separated from this company before know any Pros.

    Cons

    The multi-national company does global business however they doesn't have appropriate mind and system.

    Work environment ; Lack of respect , better to say insulting each others , full of gossip and mischief, Unfair treatment and evaluation

    Professionalism ; Lack of process and logic,
    Miscommunication and Disconnection between management and staff, subsidiaries and HQ, and Koreans and non-Korean employees

    Management;
    Unbalanced allocation of resource
    No leadership

    I DO agree on the someone else's earlier comment 'wrong people in wrong jobs' at this page

     Their process was such a chaos in my entire experience with this company
    Hopefully would be better in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do study on your industry and benchmark others . Don't fear new idea , don't get threaten by new system and different perception. Don't compete internally and compete with your real rival out of the same organization.

    I have been working at LG Mobile Phones

    Pros

    If you are a full time regular employee the benefits are pretty decent: Health, Dental, Gym, Phone reimbursement. They do provide free breakfast every Friday.

    Cons

    Everyone is overworked and stressed. They do not hire enough people to handle the workload. LG tends to hire temps for about a year at a time and use them until they either quit, or their term is up. This results in employees that don't know what they're doing, and dissatisfied employees at that.

    I work in a department where half the employees are temps, and we know full well we will not be hired on. The workload is huge, exhausting, and management fails miserably at rewarding us for our hard work. Instead, we are micromanaged. My supervisor makes me outline daily what I've done, and how long each task took. Everything we do is logged, to the point that we spend 60% of our time logging what we did instead of actually doing our jobs.

    I used to stay late daily, but stopped because it wasn't worth it. I've had two panic attacks and several migraines since starting at LG, and gained ten pounds from stress eating/drinking. My supervisor has caused me and my coworker both to break down crying in meetings. My coworker has been known to stay til 9pm and work on weekends, and doesn't even always put it on her timecard because management makes her feel guilty for not getting her work done in eight hours. This coworker will also be discarded once her one year term is up.

    Another coworker, also a temp, was invited for an interview to become permanent in the company. HR then called him the day before the interview and cancelled it, saying he was no longer qualified because they decided he needed a degree, which he didn't have, to do the job he was already doing.

    Based on what I've heard around the office, the only people that are happy here are the Koreans, because it is a Korea based company. The rest of us are forced to be excluded from conversations during company meals because they are speaking in Korean, and can't read half the emails sent.

    I also have a supervisor who has repeatedly asked who I am dating the entire six months that I have been with the company. Not quite harassment, but uncomfortable nonetheless.

    Overall, I'm very unhappy at LG and have requested that my temp agency move me... unfortunately by the time I get home after work I'm too exhausted and stressed to even think about trying to find a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees and examine your managers--exactly how useful are they?

    Pros

    Build good products, diversified company, brand has potential.

    Cons

    Horrible culture to work in, no trust of local staff and leadership. Process overwhelms any possibilities of creativity.
