    Small organization, easy to make an impact and get noticed. Friendly co-workers, pretty relaxed environment.

    Pros

    It's fun, you get to make a big difference in impacting a multinational conglomerate from the Silicon Valley. Laid-back, nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes you might not see progress being made. Also the organizational structure is difficult to understand at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes there is not enough communication between colleagues and different departments. Morale can also be low at times if there is not a lot of progress or approvals being made.

    Oil and Water - Silicon Valley and Korean businesses practices are equally compatible

    Pros

    SK Telecom Americas has tremendously bright and hard working people at the working level. The capacity and capital for driving success are quite evident. If you are a market research or pseudo-strategic planning professional then this is the place for you. The healthcare benefits are the best I've seen.

    Cons

    SK Telecom Americas has a very inexperienced senior management team. They lack either the courage or the conviction to take an opportunity from ideation through execution. Moreover, the link to the home office is also weak and that's where the decisions are really made. Check the Linkedin profiles of the executive team to make an informed decision prior to making a career move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a vision, communicate it, empower your employees, adopt some of the local business culture you are working in (Silicon Valley), and make decisions
