    Pros

    Compared to other Korean conglomerates, LG provides a good work environment and you're able to have a work life balance.
    Supportive colleagues and in general a healthy organization

    Cons

    Salaries are not high if you're not a Korean national; opportunities of growth are skim and on a yearly basis they provide a R&R review to decide whether you deserve a "small" raise or not

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should provide better growth opportunities and more frequent trainings and not only on products.

    Pros

    LG USA has favorable benefits, including no out-of-pocket insurance, 401k matching with immediate vesting, and annual discounts on LG products.

    Cons

    Lack of long-term career opportunity for non-Koreans; language barriers for any internal work that occurs before going to US regional marketing.

    Add a corporate policy that trains/encourages senior and middle management to build up individual abilities and careers of all their team members.
