    Pros

    You can learn lots of things from SHI, communication skills, drinking skills(?), and voluntary service activities etc,.
    because there are a wide range of different department, such as hull structure design team and piping design team and so on.

    Cons

    Normally, you have to hardwork min.10hours per day, sometimes from 4hours to 8hours during weekends (on sat,sun each) and you must go to your working place until at 8000 am but the majority of employees arrive by at 0740 am.

    Pros

    Good salary, great benefits, nice people to work with. Working at the shipyard in Geoje was especially rewarding because the entire area feels like a little Samsung Town and the culture was very positive. Many employees throughout the company were "Samsung men" who had spent all or substantially all of their careers at Samsung and fully intended to retire from the same company. I don't see much of that level of dedication elsewhere.

    Cons

    Some limitations on career advancement for foreign (i.e. non-Korean) employees, or at least for those employees who were not fluent enough to conduct business in the Korean language.

    Too much control by Group Head

    Advice to Management

    Should consider future of Company but not your future only.

    Pros

    1. For people with higher position and better understanding in corporate politics, it is where their dream can be realized. i.e. overwhelming power over your people.

    2. Dental care $1,000 a year, which is quite nice. Additional health care, not bad canteen and other benefits like company cottage (quality is not as good as european or american standard) are given.

    3. For local employee, they stress on education programs. For people who want to attend more conference, exhibition and others, here will be the best among all the other shipbuilding / marine structure building yard

    4. Company dorm
     - This can be a bit controversial. It's only for singles. Shared room. And has bad privacy.
        But still free. (More exactly, less than USD 10 per month, including all electricity)
        No other people who is not resident are allowed to come in. Some invited their boyfriend or girlfriend and kicked out. You won't want to live here, if you're a person of freedom.

    5. Competitive salary, compared to other local employers in the industry. Not very high in absolute scale.

    Cons

    1. Work and life balance is severely bad. Working hours can be more than 11 hours a day, easily, excluding your lunch and dinner time, which is 1 hour for each.

    2. Non-work related activity is quite active, and you will have peer pressure for it. Social contribution and dinner gathering is usually the most of them. And cleaning the office, decorating the office are included as well. Some of those activities will happen during your working hour, ordered by your supervisor, whether you're extremely busy or not doesn't matter.

    3. According to my experience, around half of your colleagues won't have basic engineering knowledge which you can learn in uni, during 2nd and 3rd grade.

    4. If anything goes wrong, two of the work process will start. One is finding solution and the other is finding who is responsible for it. The latter is simply a war. Beware. You can't expect people say "we did our best, still something went wrong. We need to learn from this failure". They won't stop until dooming someone.

    5. They restructure company governance every year. You may feel confused for two years.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees have more time of themselves. Employer can't expect anything like "FUN MANAGEMENT" (it's what Samsung Heavy Ind. is aiming) if its employees go back to their place at 9 p.m. in the evening.
