    I have been working at POSCO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice employees, good company reputation. Working conditions are overall good, working environment depends greatly on your team/group/department. Free full medical check annually

    Cons

    Extreme vertical hierarchy. A lot of reports to seniors and bosses. Korean is a must. Conservative and not creative.

    Pros

    The company offers a vast range of Steel products to deal with. No matter which country you may be working in, the HQ supports and understands the needs of its customers well. They also come up with best researches in the field of steel making. Great company to work in the steel industry.

    The only motivation for overseas employees is the company's profile. The HR policies of overseas offices and locations should be structured to fit in the local needs.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be flexible.
