    Pros

    Budgets are available if you have an appropriate cause. Excellent benefits, especially health coverage. Good support for travel.

    Cons

    Money/Profit obsessed company (but that makes them successful) Lots of politics, meetings, and endless reports & reports of reports. Korean business culture and hierarchy, even in the USA. After hours drinking expected. Demands of managers or their bosses trump any customer request. Expect to drop everything when upper management from Korea visits. If you are not Korean, you will not make much progress. Use this company as a stepping stone. Management changes every year in December, so there is yearly turmoil and disorganization until the new boss settles in.

    Advice to Management

    Need more humility.

    Pros

    The technology that I work on directly impacts millions of people. Good exposure in related technologies. Start-up like work environment, fast and agile.

    Cons

    Engineering is strongly driven by market and product requirement. Research is sometimes sometimes hampered due to lack of time.
