    Stable, flexible and research work environment.


    Senior management are unexperienced, arogant and incapable to mange the lab. Neoptism and favoritism are very popular during the company, especially if you are Koreans you are in their loop otherwise you are out of the loop Their demand is unclear with high expectations. There is no roadmap and direction in the lab. All the decisions are made under closed door, there is no presentation by the executive about their future plan. Everything is secret. You have to work with HQ but they are reluctant to collaborate. People work very hard and prepare quality work but are always criticized by executive and the executive never appreciate their work. The EVP is an autocrat and very hard to work with him.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some experienced people for your executive and directors. Run the lab like a US company with open culture not like a dictatorship. Take care of your employee and appreciate them
