    I worked at POSCO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They provide good job security since their business model is quite stable. But the industry is getting under severe competition as Chinese companies are rushing.

    Cons

    Their culture is pretty much old style. If you are not used to it, it would be really difficult to suit yourself in the corporate culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The company offers a vast range of Steel products to deal with. No matter which country you may be working in, the HQ supports and understands the needs of its customers well.
    They also come up with best researches in the field of steel making.
    Great company to work in the steel industry.

    Cons

    The only motivation for overseas employees is the company's profile. The HR policies of overseas offices and locations should be structured to fit in the local needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be flexible.
