    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth if you get in the right department.

    Cons

    The top executives rotate in from Korea every 3 to 4 years, so there is never long term goals for the company. They are only interested in their own success. Sometimes important meeting will start out in English and then convert the Korean. Very unproductive for non-Korean speaking employees. At one time they said they were going to conduct all meeting in english but they never followed though.

    Advice to Management

    In order to be truly successful you must seek market information from local individuals/resources. You have created a gap between your Korean - non-Korean employees which will limit your future success. You treat your top executive better than you treat your customers and they notice it.

    All the pieces are in place to be terrific, but culture based on "punishment" will keep them from being on top

    Pros

    Good People work here and most mean well. Excellent benefits package.

    Cons

    LG management is forever trying to figure out ways not to pay bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest with your local region employees and stop pretending that you genuinely care about their careers or their welfare. It's obviously lip service and we're not as dumb as you think we are. By withholding bonuses you are changing our compensation after the fact and are encouraging us to use LG to gain experience we can use elsewhere.

    I have been working at LG Mobile Phones full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The team of people I worked with were great, making going to work each day fun and exciting. I was able to learn many new skills, become an expert in many areas that I am able to use throughout my career.

    Cons

    The biggest obstacle (s) are culture based if you do not speak the Korean language. Communication is key in our line of work, so you are at a disadvantage if you do not speak the language regardless of how experience or good you are at doing your job.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to relay clear direction for the team so that everyone can focus on the same end goal. Communicating this at an early stage can help build a solid foundation with the team.
