    I have been working at CJ Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a first job fresh out of college, it is a good place to learn. Workloads are manageable, and the management is laid back at most time.

    Cons

    There is no room for advancement. Getting promoted is almost impossible starting out as an entry. Work can get very mundane after couple months. And, salary is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give out better compensations, and opportunities to advance.

    Get management that believes in the shared values and goals.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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