    I worked at LG International full-time

    Pros

    Supervisors are open their minds to change current strategies and processes. Salary is better than other big Korean companies for the similar positions. There are many opportunities to work abroad as it has more than 50 foreign branch offices.

    Cons

    There is still traditionally negative Korean culture such as working overtime and having lots of a bit mandatory unnecessary dining out with coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Giving more clear directions will lead to the company's overall success

    I have been working at LG International full-time

    Pros

    1. Good Place to Learn and Experience above the level of Staffs from other companies 2. Wage is decent enough 3. Lot more chances to live/travel abroad(albeit not always in well-developed countries)

    Cons

    1. 'Macho' style culture(lot of scolding/abusive verbal attacks/limitation on hairstyles etc.) 2. Absolute lack of respect for personal life(It could be hard to become a good dad, but then again, lot of Korean companies are still like this) 3. Lack of real intent and ambition from the current management 4. Lack of experience in mining industry leading to lack of structure/process(although it is one of better companies in Korea)

    Advice to Management

    Be Ambitious(but realistic)

    I worked at LG International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good relationship/bonding with fellow employees - High brand recognition (LG name) - The company operates in diverse industries and pocess a variety of business models, therefore you are able to learn and experience different businesses in a short period of time

    - Low salary and benefits relative to competitors - Frequent overtime (leaving work 10PM~ midnight) and working on weekends and drinking sessions (teambuilding purposes), thus there are very little personal time, especially on a working day

    The management is too autocratic, leading to a rigid corporate culture with little to none room for innovation
