Pros

If you work hard, you will be rewarded with great bonuses and salary increases.

Cons

Hanjin is structured by hierarchy. Don't be surprised if upper management doesn't listen to new ideas from lower level employees. You would need to bring it to your manager, and your manager would need to take it to their manager, and so forth in order to possibly implement a new idea.

    Pros

    Medical/Dental/Vision are the best I have ever seen. Good work/life balance. It is very dificult to get fired. Free lunch once a month.

    Cons

    The pay is low. If you have a college degree you will not be paid a competitive salary. No raises for the past three years, and until Hanjin starts making money again dont expect one.

    No unified strategy/vision for the company. I worked here for 6 months before I even heard the vision statement "become the global logistics leader". Though how they expect to achieve this must be reserved for the Korean circle because they never told us. There is no corporate culture, leadership or professional development to be found at Hanjin.This is a "punch the clock" job.

    Understand that this is a Korean company and that they do things differently. Promotion is based on age/time with the company, not performance. Though there are some good managers, you will see some incompetent people promoted to manager roles (at the local and HQ level). Performance targets are so unrealisitic, no one even attempts to achieve them. This may be the only company in the world that doesnt pay their sales people comission. Koreans are staffed in local offices that report straight to Seoul, rather than through North America HQ. This creates confusing multiple chains of command, and basically any American manager can be bypassed at any time, which gives the impression that the Americans cant be trusted and must be watched at all times.

    People generally stay here from 1-3 years and move on to a higher paying job. Turnover is very high, and morale is low. Management will not offer you a dime more if you get a job offer, regardless of your performance or the amount of money you have made/saved the company. No action has ever been taken to correct the turnover issue, and Hanjin is willing to dish out insane amounts of cash constantly hiring new people. There is no oportunity for career growth, and there is a cap in HQ for how far you can go unless you are Korean.

    Advice to Management

    Create a unified vision for the company, and get everyone onboard. Stop talent leaving Hanjin to go to the competition by raising salary to competitive levels. Create a corporate culture of excelence where good work is rewarded and lazy workers are fired. Define career paths and offer some type of training/professional development. Fix turnover, give people a reason to stay at this company!
