    Pros

    Health benefits are good though not 100% paid like other tech and start up companies

    Cons

    Does not foster collaboration
    Competitive (though people are nice)
    Lacks clarity from everyday to long term
    Very top and bottom line driven
    Does not value people - employees to consumers
    Culture
    Very Korean dominant, backwards compared to Western tech companies
    Glass ceiling if you aren't Korean, woman/mother that doesn't come in at a senior level
    Secretive even when you are on the inside
    Long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visibility, cultural integration, clarity
    Relocate - nothing by the office except Korean community. Hard to access unless you have a car.
