    Better not work here if you are not a Korean. Most of the non-Korean employees have left the company.

    LG (UK) - OK if you are Korean, tough if you are not.

    Cannot Disclose (Current Employee) Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)

    ProsThe Korean management are trying to act more internationally, but have a long way to go. Their products are good, which gives the company a good product brand image.

    ConsThey have some very talented and dedicated local ( i.e. non-Korean) employees, but management decision making is very top-down. The Korean staff blindly obey, showing total compliance, but often the impact on the business at local level is counter-productive. This demotivates the local staff. Their mobiles products used to lead the market, but they have lost their way in recent years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDramatically reduce the proportion of Korean staff, or train the Koreans to be more assertive upwards.

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