    Not innovative company

    Network Engineer (Current Employee)
    Seoul (South Korea)

    ProsWorkloads vary by person's role, usually not hard.
    Free mobile line for fulltime employees (excluding international calls, of course)

    ConsLow salary compared to other big South Korean companies (SKT, LGT etc)
    Innovation from bottom-up cannot be done (rigid, old-thinking staff members)

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire more staff members and employees to make company younger.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Dysfunctional organization, politics rule, not abilities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHas huge infrastructure in South Korea.

    ConsIncompetent bosses, huge salary gap between executives and employees, lots of politics internally, disregard for employees as person and sees employees as always replaceable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire incompetent bosses and hire competent and experienced professionals

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Never join this company

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Seoul (South Korea)

    ProsIf you want to play and get the wage, the old system of KT makes it possible for the employees.

    ConsThere is no vision in this company, declining revenue with no vision. Moreover if you are a manager actual salary does not get raised.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not focus on the short term strategy only. Moreover managers are just leaving the company because of the lackless of vision.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bureaucratic, very political company

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Seoul (South Korea)

    Pros- If you can withstand the pressures from the upper management, you are free to do most of the stuffs.
    - Extra benefits such as medical insurance and welfare points are great

    Cons- Compensation is below industry-average
    - Bureaucratic (you can't do this or that because other department won't like it, this is a great biz but we can't do this because it will cannibalize our revenue. We need to find the optimal timing)
    - Very rigid organization: saying "no" or "this is not worth doing" to managements' decision is not allowed. don't know why
    - Smart working culture is now being wiped out with new chairman in place.

    Advice to Senior Management- Please please please make sure that you think about the reality and the world before you make your decisions/orders

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
