Pros

Chances to stay and manage offshore staff
If you enjoy the administrative side of IT with lots of unwritten policies and procedures then there are opportunities to do that

Cons

Chances are high that you will be working alongside IT people who are disaffected and who suffer from low morale and lack the inclination to get things done
Poorly thought out policies and procedures which slow down customer engagement and kill motivation and innovation
Many managers protect their own turf, play political games with roles and responsibilities and constantly exaggerate and do the bare minimum. But they are protected so they never leave and the situation just gets worse for everyone else
Unfortunately has changed dramatically for the worst in the last few years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    KT is a market leader in business and technology and has strong executive leadership.

    Cons

    KT's culture is stated and execute management attempts to filter it through the organization, but it is not consistent across the organization. Compensation at KT is below market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the culture

    Pros

    When things are slow, there is a lot of paid free time. Professional environment. Employees communicate well and respect others moral standards. Willing to help the employee when they get into a bind. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Unpredictable environment as with any technology based company. When times are tough, benefits are the first to go. Big company mentality where the stock holders take precedence over the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you reward your employees for going above and beyond their expected duties. Not just a pat on the back, give them some soft of incentive to keep them motivated.

    No opinion of CEO
