I worked at Lg Electronics Alabama full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Provide very good benefit package and multiple online learning program and training to the employees; the employee efforts on the work will reflect on the reward or incentives.

Cons

Employee, to be improved on the new product knowledge, has to be ready for the assignment or project when the business demands. To be educated through the training program is essential way plus the self-initiative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

At least one HR staff in the branch office that will be better for employee.

    Pros

    Great benefits, fantastic coworkers and friendly people

    Cons

    Company is hampered from very poor upper management. Company only looks at numbers on a spreadsheet and does not balance it with reality. Performance numbers are pushed very hard so there is a lot of "fudging" of the numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance the numbers on a spreadsheet with what is really happening. Question the information on a spreadsheet and look beyond what someone submits.

    I worked at Lg Electronics Alabama full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Huntsville is Quiet and Calm place to live. Good for family and kids but only limited place for good education (Madison and Hampton Cove area)
    LG is a national brand name.

    Cons

    This is service division and it is hard to get money from Sales (in New Jersey) and also keep having low quality from manufacturer (Factories in Korea). - it is why all other division moved to other state and area, except service division.
    LG has tried to catch up other top tires (Samsung, Maytag, Whirlpool) but it is not quite happened yet .
    It causes major quality issues and then a lot of recall product.
    You need to be prepared for every mess they have.
    In addition to that, management basically consists of two groups.
    one is Chief officers from Headquarter (Korea).
    They stay at least 4 years in the division assigned so they always only care about the business only during their stay.
    Also they do not want to have any problem only during their stay.
    All responsibility will go down to others and lots of people will be replaced when the performance is not matched with requirements from HQ.
    Another group is chronic dumb middle managements (from directors to AM).
    They spent more than 8 years to become a position they have (8 years for supervisor) then they know how to avoid responsibility and keep their position.
    Remember, to be promoted you have to commit your personal life for 8 years to this ugly and low efficent (time / money) service business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your benefit with your subordinates.
