    Pros

    Great benefit package Huntsville is not the worst place to live

    Cons

    Glass ceiling for non-Koreans, especially women Corporate culture of micromanagement and mistrust of middle management (this is top-down driven) Endless reports (weekly, monthly, quarterly) where the formatting of reports is sometimes more important than how innovative the idea is. No work-life balance if you want to be considered a dedicated employee

    Advice to Management

    Trust the local management and actually use English as the company language

    Pros

    The benefits package was amazing compared to other local companies. They were willing to accommodate my class schedule while I finished my MBA.

    Cons

    The cultural differences between Korean management and American workers was extreme. Working less than 60 hours a week was frowned on. Management was severely lacking in leadership skills. Four people filed HR complaints against my supervisor in the past 6 months. There is very limited room for advancement, and only Koreans get to top management level. Priorities shifted almost monthly, so any efforts put towards a specific goal were wasted when management lost interest. My title was planning analyst, but 90% of my job was doing pivot tables and vlookups in excel. I never actually analyzed anything.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who work for you. Don't hire people with advanced skills to perform mundane tasks.
