    CJ's four main businesses are interesting

    Marketing Analyst (Former Employee)
    Seoul (South Korea)

    Pros- best part of working in CJ is that you get a 35% employee discount on every business CJ is operating (i.e restaurants, movie theaters, drug stores, resorts etc..) and welfare program of female workers is good.

    Cons- typical korean style working evironment (overtime work, inefficient & ineffective organization etc.)

    Advice to Senior Managementhire more talented employees and compensate them fully and change work environmnet

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible

    Product Development (Current Employee)
    Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    Pros- Yearly Bonus
    - encourages strong teamwork
    - free gifts or tickets

    Cons- Extremely Political
    - Workers' are constantly driven to work like a mad-men yet rewarded extremely little.
    - Mostly criticism not compliments.
    - Management jokes go too far
    - Everybody is working integrated jobs, no specific roles.
    - Too much gossiping
    - Everything gets piled up on desk but no development since everybody works by politics.
    - Workers are learned to push work to other people, not manage them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange management to more globalized or more cultured people who understand global culture or, hire actual genuinely hard-working people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
