We work long hours and run very lean

Advice to Management

Listen to the ideas and expertise of the professionals that you hire, even if you are unfamiliar with the concepts (Korean vs. American culture)

    I have been working at Hyundai Capital full-time

    Pros

    Overall benefits are some of the best I've ever had. Good amount of company paid holidays. Lots of growth opportunities and the company is really growing. Lots of great people to work with and most of the management is great to work for.

    Cons

    Culture is very different than a standard American company. Lots of influence and management direction from the Korean parent company. Heavy work loads for exempt employees making it difficult to use PTO.

    I worked at Hyundai Capital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company lease program, location is nice. HR really tries to keep morale up and hosts several events (potlucks, catered lunches, etc.) "Hyundai" looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Slow and indecisive. Projects move at glacial speeds. Projects that could be done in 10 days take 90 because nobody actually does anything. Everything is outsourced and every project has a mountain of paperwork, approvals, etc. from people and departments that have little, if anything, to do with the project. You'll spend most of your time in meetings, re-hashing the same information you've gone over 2-3 times already. In most companies their size, the project would have been done and results analyzed by the time HCA gets around to actually having their contractors or sister companies start the project.

    They are willing to pay 4-5 times the cost of the actual project in consultants and outsourced business analysts, but, they are woefully behind the curve on salary. There is so little progress that employees could work one day/week and stay on track. Expect to make 10-15% less at HCA than you would anywhere else. If you're just looking to sit back and collect a paycheck - this is the place. Promotions, pay increases are done on the calendar, not on the effort you put forth. HCA seems to use the negative reinforcement method. If you don't make waves, don't change anything, stay below the radar, you will likely get some sort of bonus, COL adjustment based on your date of hire. If you bust your rear, keep everything on track, work hard, you'll get exactly the same as the person who did nothing. If positions above you come open - you'll not be eligible for promotion until your hire date... Even if you're the only candidate for the job.

    The organization's disjointed, incestuous nature creates a culture of apathy, procrastination and finger pointing. Even in managerial positions, you'll have lots of responsibility, but no authority. You're not empowered to actually get anything done.

    Technology is at least 10 years behind in most business areas. Their hot new initiative "Next Generation Business Systems" is being built on 10 year old technologies and methodologies. By the time it's finished and functional, the technologies in use will be end-of-life.

    Advice to Management

    Break away from the "big company" mentality- Hyundai is big, Hyundai Capital America is not.

    As Jack Welch said - Hire great people and then leave them alone. Let those of us who can, do. Reward results, not just longevity. Retain great talent - cut the rest.

    Create more functional business units with cross functional members, then empower them to get projects done within company standards, rather than spending 5 hours of every day running between offices, doing the same presentation, just to get everybody's blessing.
