It's a great place to work... as long as you leave your hopes and dreams out the door.

Software Engineer (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsFree breakfast on every Friday. Need to be an early bird, though. Employee discount on a lot of LG products, such as TVs and refrigerators, although you might find a better deal at Amazon if you consider tax and shipping. Occasional outdoor BBQ and picnics. Depending on what you do, you get to play with many "not yet released" LG phones.

ConsNo cubicle walls (for engineers only). There used to be, but someone upstairs thought getting rid of cubicle walls would allow easier communication among engineers. Zero privacy. A lot of important issues are discussed in the smoking area outside the building while smoking and drinking coffee, so if you don't smoke nor drink coffee, you can forget about being *in* the circle. Also if you don't play golf (the management takes golf dead seriously), kindly kiss all your career advancement goodbye. They ask you to show up at 8AM (it used to be 9), but that doesn't mean you can go home at 5PM. Even if you spend all your hours at your desk, no jeans except on Fridays. If you don't speak Korean, make sure you are white; they'll worship you even if you do a lousy job. This place forces you to come up with ideas that can be used in phones, but quantity matters a lot more than quality of the ideas. People brought from Korea are treated exceptionally well (the company pays for their houses, cars, maid services, and does taxes for them), but local recruits are bottom of the food chain. All the projects are done in Korea, so you'll always be an extra that nobody recognizes.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring interesting projects. Reward fairly. Don't penalize non-smokers, non-coffee-drinkers, and non-golfers. Bring back cubicle walls or, better yet, bring everyone in the rooms to the same playing ground.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
