It was a positive experience working at Doosan.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Doosan Heavy Industries full-time for more than a year

ProsFocus on Doosan Way, values sets this company apart from most, but especially East Asian companies. Current focus on truly becoming the first global Korean company, not just a Korean company with business around the globe. There is a difference. There are areas of technological excellence. People are helpful.

ConsStill finding it difficult to bring non-Koreans at the highest level of the company. Needs to improve its technology overall and take more risks to compete globally. Not the best people are being picked to lead the business. Slowing growth, so difficult to developmentally and career-wise progress. Korean tenure career advancement system.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire and grow people based on ability and performance not nationality.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
