Pros

Eine schnell wachsende und sich weiterentwickelnde Firma mit einer ehrgeizigen Marke, vielen neuen Markteinführungen, einem kleinen Marketingteam, einer schönen Arbeitsumgebung und kostenlosem Mittagessen in der Cafeteria des Unternehmens.

Rapidly growing and evolving company; ambitious brand; many new products coming to market; small marketing team; nice office space; free lunch in the staff cafeteria

Cons

Die Erwartungen wurden nicht immer deutlich kommuniziert. Es war manchmal schwierig, die Entscheidungsstrukturen im Unternehmen zu verstehen. Die meisten Entscheidungen ziehen sich sehr lange hin und es dauert eine Ewigkeit, bis man einen Vorschlag in die Tat umgesetzt hat, weil so viele Menschen im Unternehmen ihre Zustimmung signalisieren müssen.

Expectations were not always clearly communicated; difficult to identify decision making structures within the organization; decisions are very long in the making; turning a proposal into reality takes an eternity, because too many people have to give their approval

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Die Managementstrukturen müssen optimiert werden, damit Entscheidungen schneller getroffen werden können

Management structures need to be streamlined to facilitate quick decisions

    I worked at Kia Motors full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Kia pays 100% for medical benefits
    401k matching at 6 % (although fund options aren't that great)
    corporate events are fun (free lunch)
    Promotions exist, but they don't come easy.
    Ex) There was a guy that worked really hard (long hours everyday) at this company for 5 years. At the end of 5 years, the guy left for Toyota.

    Cons

    It is a Korean company. You will experience all the cons of Korean work culture especially If you speak Korean.

    You will get lower salary than you expected.
    You will be expected to stay later than your shift like.... everyday (This is so true if you are Korean).
    Don't ask questions (your questions will be shot down with criticism that they are stupid and not well thought out).
    No training is offered because the nature of work in finance is very monotonous.
    The quality of work is really sub standard (proposals/reports for review are surprisingly full of simple math errors and inconsistencies). No matter how many times you bring the issue to their attention, they don't listen. Correcting their errors and inconsistencies becomes the major part of your job. Finance dept is a dumping ground for other departments. They will dump all their work on finance because they know Koreans would correct all the careless mistakes.
    If you see the "emperor" of the company (CEO) ever in the company building, don't even dream of saying hello to him. You are a mere pawn and expect to kiss the floor. Don't directly look at his highness. You will know what I mean.

    Don't work for Korean companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be humble to your subordinates. Just because you are older and have higher positions at work, it does not give you special privileges to act like you own them.
