I worked at Southpole

Pros

- decent to competitive compensation in the industry
- decent benefits
- free lunch
- good location (by fort lee main st.) close to many highways, and local businesses
- will form a camaraderie among peers (mostly due to the cons listed below)

Cons

- expect to be overworked. overtime pay does not exist. management expects you to stay late and work overtime. (i.e. korean corporate lifestyle)
- your personal life becomes work life. not a job good for a family man
- senior staff is more detrimental than helpful
- work is not rewarding or encouraging

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop hiring management through nepotism. get out of your own way.
