  1. So much potential. Management overhaul necessary. CEO clearly fed wrong information.

    I have been working at GS Engineering as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is always on time.
    Head Office enjoy free lunch and coffee.
    Relaxed working hours for foreigners compared to most other Korean companies.

    Cons

    Invested too much in high-risk power projects - strategy and leadership is awful.
    Korean working culture - there are very few managers with any of the skills required to manage foreign staff.
    Working hours - Please work between 8:30 and 17:30 to avoid overtime. Don't start panic-working at 5pm and expect me to stay late, knowing that piece of work has been sat there since early morning.
    Nobody talks to each other. Very little inter-departmental coordination for the purpose of limiting responsibility. Only a few key people are privy to the actual project situation which is often detrimental as work cannot be properly coordinated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lessons on how to manage the different needs of foreign staff would be a great idea. Please accept that we are not Korean, whilst we do understand that you are, and we have different needs. We actually quite like spending time with our families, therefore working in work time would be ideal to allow us to do so. Stating and re-stating that we want to be a global company is all well and good, but grow a pair and make those urgently needed changes that will take us there. Cowardly leadership has led to this loss-making situation.

    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.
