    LGE should be more faster and aggresive. Fast follower strategy is no more working.

    Pros

    As a big conglomerate, the company is stable & well structured. Not a bad place if you want to experience Korean/APAC culture and work life in conglomerate/Korean Chaebol.

    Cons

    Extreme work-life unbalance, very high politics, no vision from management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire & promote those who can speak bitter words in front of you, not those who play loyalty game & politics. Delegate to professionals/experts, not thise only loyal to you. Or stop trying to make every decision fooled by false belief you're always right.

    Pros

    Hmm.. LG is the 2nd largest electronics company in Korea. LG is big Konzern. So employees get many welfare.

    Cons

    - Terrible decision-making process in ?? R&D division . ?? is the product name. I don't want to open. . Nobody say 'No' in front of the boss of ?? R&D division . Only one man, the boss ordered everything . In leaders meeting, the boss was suddenly finding any engineer whether he/she was invited or not - When you made a bug... . If you made a bug, you wrote many emails and reports. . You joined the leader meeting and you stood the center of meeting room, you explained the bug and the plan to resolve. . And you fixed until midnight. You did not fix it daytime, because you must stayed the meeting. . If you did not solve the issue, you must repeat previous processes. - Extreme working time . I worked 100 hours for a week. I worked weekends and I slept in the office building. . My colleague worked 120 hours in a week. It is real. . Over working is demanded from the team leader or the boss . You can not control your time yourself

    Advice to Management

    Engineer is not typing machine. They are human and they are expert more and more than you.
