    Good job, good benefits, good pay but no time for family.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is good. Benefits are good. Bonuses are paid every so often which is good. Most of the people that work there are good.

    ConsNo time for family, last night of week on night shift gets taken advantage of all the time by being forced to work 9-10.5 hours. Rotating shifts is bad also.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more and stop trying to compete with other managers to be better than one another. Work together towards a common goal. If all four wheels are going different directions you will never go forward.

    "The Power To Surprise" indeed...

    Instructional Designer (Current Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsClose to home. Enjoyed the actual job itself. Plenty of responsibility in providing end users with web-based and instructor=led training deliverables.

    ConsHigh CEO / upper management turnover rate. Constantly changing priorities- Korean leadership would receive directives from mother country prior to start of daily business. Previous progress would subsequently be changed or scrapped. Incompetant mid-level management. Have no concept of life-work balance- would expect to arrive early, work late, take no breaks or lunch, and place family values beneath company goals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind out what is really going on inside Kia University, and why so many good employees have left, or have been ousted under the guise of being "laid-off".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
