    I have been working at GS Engineering full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at GS Engineering as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about teaching and training (if you can get hired).
    Coworkers are top-notch and probably the best teachers in Korea.
    Pay increase every year
    Given gifts on Korean holidays by the company

    Cons

    Management structure in HR is confusing - high turnover.
    Former FT supervisor was dictatorial and largely incompetent (which led to his dismissal)
    Few (if any) opportunities to go into admin or management
    Required to work overtime without pay several times per year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Foreign Employees updated on management changes and restructuring.

    The Indian office is good only for Carrer starters or Retired Engineers

    Current Employee - Piping Stress Engineer in Haryāna (India)
    Current Employee - Piping Stress Engineer in Haryāna (India)

    I have been working at GS Engineering full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
