    Pros

    Good salary, worldwide exposure. Numerous clients to learn from and be involved with. Global staff from many countries to work with. New CEO is a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    Numerous petty controls over time and work environment. Pressure to work uncompensated overtime, Last minute, behind schedule operations are a constant. Terrible leadership except for very few. Very top down management style. The best young employees are leaving for other companies and foreigners work one contract and then leave.

    Advice to Management

    HR has too much control over the business aspect of the company. They are driving away your best employees.

    Pros

    Benefits are the best. Houston company values are good, but leadership is lacking. The Koreans are nice, cordial people and if you like cultural diversity, this place has it. I found the cultural mix interesting.

    Cons

    Strong Korean influence: its a Korean company trying to be successful in the American market. Not an American office with a Korean influence. The Koreans seem to be afraid of the Western culture so they turn down a whole bunch of work.

    Advice to Management

    This is an American office and should be run by Americans. Instead, there are American officers, but they have little say. its the Korean way, or no way.

    Pros

    The team I worked with is amazing. Probably it is not the case for all teams, but the work environment is very friendly in general. It is a fast growing company, so there are many challenges and changes in a regular basis.

    Cons

    The path is not very well defined given to the fast pace of the growing and expansion of the company. At the high level management level they have a very asian work culture, it depends on your manager how that is translated to the rest of the team. The company is still figuring out how to get a more effective press communication in the western market. It is a huge company, thus, it depends what you do projects can progress at a faster or slower rate.
