KT is a great place to develop transferrable leadership skills, but can be career limitiing over the long term.

Current Employee - Senior IT Manager in Milpitas, CA

Pros

Leading edge technology for engineers. Excellent benefits and stable job environment for such a cyclical industry. Very strong business processes that are valuable outside of KT.

Cons

Can be highly political which can limit career advancement. Operations is out sourcing outside US so opportunities are more limited now than 5-8 years ago. Engineering driven company, but less opportunities in other tracks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure you understand where the power lies. Understanding what the key executive management players care about is the key to long term success. Many of the Directors do not either understand or communicate this accurately to the management team.

    Pros

    Exposure to an amazing amount of science & engineering & other processes that are needed to make a new hardware product.

    Cons

    Well, this is a great place to be if you are in the right group. Maybe the downside is the lack of a swimming pool?

    Research requires a peaceful mind & sometimes too fast paced an environment can be counterproductive.

    Too much documentation may not be a good thing.
