    Unfortunately, woori retains the extremely conservative DNA of its former namesake LG

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seoul (South Korea)

    ProsJob security. Iron rice bowl is still in effect at Woori.

    ConsToo much internal politicking and kowtowing. Analysts in research center are conflicted, trying to serve multiple masters. Result is extremely conservative, consensus-hugging, overworked analysts churning out mediocre work. Despite that, there are a few good guys scattered about doing decent work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your workers more flexibility and let them pursue their individual initiative. Stop trying to micromanage everything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
