Pros

Compensation was competitive, bonus was pretty good, they are making profits. But no stocks, it's not traded in US exchanges.

Cons

Complete chaos, nobody knows what is happening, why it is happening. Probably manufacturing in Korea knows what they are doing, but have no clue on mobile software. People are expected to follow orders without asking any questions. No respect for people, you will get calls at 3:00 am in the night and would be casually asked to do something useless without even acknowledging this is an awkward hour and the request could be done two weeks later with no impact to anything.

Advice to Management

Come to Silicon Valley and see how companies are run

    Pros

    industry leading products. It's okay company for someone who are second income in their household, meaning good benefit such as health insurance, meal subsidy.

    Cons

    lying culture in the entire organization (top management, HR, Seoul Head Quarter) No rule for compensation (no fairness) often discrimination (race, sex, and so on) getting more and more top heavy (non-smart people are getting rid of smart people)

    Pros

    Great people, benefits, product; work on cool projects; get to build a lot of processes from scratch, company empowers you to come in and do what you think needs to be done

    Cons

    Pressure from HQ in Korea can be negative; less Western management practices; can be very difficult to get funding for projects; internal home-grown systems are challenging to use

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible and open-minded to different approaches
