    Less mandates and more incentives to perform better.

    Pros

    Backed by a $100 billion parent company in South Korea. Aggressive and dynamic. Plans for significant growth in the near term. The "Total Solutions Provider" strategy has great potential.

    Cons

    Still some minor growing pains in the US, but most are being resolved. As the companry matures, most of the initial problems have been mitigated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being aggressive; keep growing!

    Pros

    Work environment most especially once your immediate superior have known you, work environment will be better.

    Cons

    Mostly older Manager have bad manners on shouting some global staff even in the front of the subcontractor supervisor or worker, which in the long process losses the respect to that global staff.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employing those very good and talented global staff for any future job.

    Pros

    Some really senior people like Mr H.C Jain who can be a perfect mentor in the shaping of a project and an engineer's career.

    Cons

    Excessive department politics in certain departments.
    Lack of job knowledge of senior engineers who lead the projects.
    Lack of professionalism among people.

    Advice to Management

    Choose right leaders in order to develop right company.
    The President My Casey Choi is a visionary and his vision is not being realised down the ladder.
    Lack of communication with the Head Office with the department working engineers and dependence on wrong people for information sharing.

    Pros

    Pleasant people (except as noted below), reasonable hours, great projects. Late career expats treated well for the most part.

    Cons

    No career path for "Global Talent" as all in that category are brought in at the lowest rank of G1/sawon and remain there. This is significant in a hierarchical society such as Korea. Global Talents are rarely invited to meetings with clients or even the project team as a whole. They often never interact with their managers directly. It's very difficult to be an effective member of the team as one must struggle to get adequate information. Korean co-workers and managers matter-of-factly make negative comments about colleagues and clients of other races. (It's worth knowing a little more Korean than you let on.) There are two CEOs and HR answers to a different one than the project teams. Little to no effective project-related training provided in English. If you are just in Korea to save some money and put a project name or two on your CV, then maybe it's OK. But it can be a less-than-collegial environment for non-Koreans.

    Advice to Management

    Decide if the company is going to be yet another Korean company profiting internationally, or a global company. If it's meant to become global, hold all meetings on international projects in English and diversify your workforce. Stop hiring so many people with so little knowledge of the world outside of hagwons and highrises.

    Pros

    The pay was and benefits were good

    Cons

    They will tell you anything to get you if they need you regardless of what the truth is.

    Advice to Management

    Expand your horizons and recognize that your international employees have skills you could use. I was hired purely to make an impression on the client but then never utilized. I could have passed on a great deal of knowledge to younger employees but sat like a fire extinguisher only to be paraded when a show was needed.
