Pros

Pays well, insurance benefits are good, works well with people in the military, and a small tuition assistance program for potential students.

Cons

The majority of management is promoted through being friends with higher management. Huge culture clash between Koreans and Americans. Sometimes it seems Koreans see Americans as trained pets that are only alive to work. 10 hour work shifts Monday through Friday and sometimes Saturdays. 10 hours being, actually working. 45 min. lunch and and 3 10 min. breaks, so you're usually away from home more than 12 hours a day on average. A low level management Korean can outweigh some of the biggest American management. The state bends over backwards for this company and show absolutely no gratitude. Communication between upper management and production floor is terrible. A cost of living raise is supposed to be given every 6 months. This would usually be an average of .22 cents. They use this as leverage for people to work harder and here recently, they started giving a lump sum "bonus." This is for a cost of living adjustment, not because we met production goals. Last time I checked, I can't pay increasing fuel costs for my car with a lump sum. The Tuition Assistance Program is more of a joke. It is limited only for online school. No chance of night school due to the rotating shifts.

Advice to Management

As always, communication is terrible. And please step up to Korean management. I understand that you get paid salary and your overtime, is how you get your money, but as a team member I'm sick of not being able to see my family.

    Pros

    offers a great experience in a manufacturing setting. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    We work very long hours; however it is a fulfilling job. korean management is very involved. Try to see things from their cultural perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Watch you group leaders. Ensure they are enforcing the policies appropriately and across the board. allow your team members to give their ideas without being judged.
