    Pros

    There is lots of challenging job opportunities and networking is easily accessible. As a machinery engineer, I have been learned lots of technical knowledge and utilized good networking.

    Cons

    Compensation raises and sometimes force to move to another team. Also, this company is specialized in detail engineering business, if you are willing to take FEED job, I don't recommend you this company.

    Advice to Management

    Most management that I have been working for is always willing to help me grow as an individual, whether it was looking outside my job role or increasing my current job role knowledge.

    This company is good to starters.

    Pros

    1. 5 day work ( ie when there is no work-load).
    2. The Indian office serves much as a back-office for the taxing repetitive work for its parent Korean office(like proposals & less critical parts of a whole plant). This implies that mistakes in work, if any, are not of critical nature and hence accommodated to a larger extent.
    3. Carrer starters can be promised to have more job exposure than most other Indian EPC companies. The whole point of GSI is for reduced cost operation and giving as much work to Juniors do allow them to get wide exposure.

    Cons

    1. Salary is lower than the market for most people.
    2. No site exposure.
    3. No vendor Exposure.
    4.Very less inter-departmental co-ordination and hence repeat work is immense.

    Advice to Management

    India is changing and the demographic advantage with which GSI has been running will be over soon. GSI has almost zero investment in its employees since they are after blatant cost reduction. This will have to change if this business model is to be sustainable

    Pros

    GS E&C is one of the largest engineering contractors in east asia, and located in the heart of Seoul, where is very diversified and cultural heritages are fluent. Benefit packages are competitive among the similar companies.

    Cons

    As being one of the sister companies of GS group, South Korea's big conglomerate, the inside culture of the company is not flexible at all. The top manangement pursues money, but doesn't care much about the welfare of the employees. Of course, they made the internal welfare system, but it's not the best among similar companies, simply below the average.

    Pros

    1. Still a growing company with opportunities to work overseas.
    2. Relatively open work culture.
    3. Good management support and communications.

    Cons

    1. Seniority promotion over merit-based promotion.
    2. Too many 'ceilings' to promotion. Need to move vertically and then up too often.

    Advice to Management

    1. Phase out seniority-based promotion and bring in merit-based promotion.
    2. Benchmark globally-competitive companies outside engineering industry to gain new ideas.
