    I worked at Doosan Heavy Industries full-time

    Pros

    International company with a broad product range and a strong home market. Incredible infrastructure and industrious organization.

    Cons

    Lacks its own technology base. Has little ability to differentiate versus it competitors. Stuck in its very bureaucratic structure which stifles creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Need to develop real differentiators and improve program / project management. The decision making process in effect blocks and does not empower good decision making. Delegate authority to levels where the issues are understood more completely.

    Pros

    A growing company with an international presence. Major, complex project works and scopes of supply. A stated intent to become a global company, not just a Korean company doing business globally. Great potential.

    Cons

    Culture that limits growth for non-Koreans. Senior staff appointments to positions where they are just learning as they are going, without any credentials or experience qualifying them for their positions. Different standards of employment and service. Non-Koreans are put in subservient roles to Koreans, with apparent lack of full trust. Most major business is conducted in Korean, not English (the world lingua franca) or the lingua franca of the country where work is being performed. Unrealistic deadlines for sometimes very complex matters.

    Advice to Management

    Become a truly international company, utilizing the best personnel for each position no matter what their nationality is. Enforce uniform standards of employment for all nationalities. Conduct business in the applicable lingua franca, with backup documents in Korean and other necessary language.

    I have been working at Doosan Heavy Industries full-time

    Pros

    You can learn a lot of thing woeking at Doosan. They have a great policy of familiarization with the workflow from South Korea and they are organizing benchmarks and trainings.

    Cons

    Sometimes a person can stay to much on the same position or working on the same thing everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on promoting more young managers that have a background working in Doosan.

    I worked at Doosan Heavy Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Focus on Doosan Way, values sets this company apart from most, but especially East Asian companies. Current focus on truly becoming the first global Korean company, not just a Korean company with business around the globe. There is a difference. There are areas of technological excellence. People are helpful.

    Cons

    Still finding it difficult to bring non-Koreans at the highest level of the company. Needs to improve its technology overall and take more risks to compete globally. Not the best people are being picked to lead the business. Slowing growth, so difficult to developmentally and career-wise progress. Korean tenure career advancement system.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and grow people based on ability and performance not nationality.
