    I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Just like any other work place, there is stress, deadlines, and work to be done in a timely and efficient manner. But what really sets Hyundai apart is the people. Plus the following: -1 1/2 weeks vacation every December, plus 2 weeks vacation (must be accrued) -Medical/Vision/Dental insurance -401K match -Gym -Library -Dry Cleaners -Cafeteria & coffee kiosk -Yearly bonuses & salary increase -Employee Resource...

    Cons

    It's a bit of a gentlemen's club and a majority of the leadership team is older white males. There are few to no women in high leadership positions. The Korean culture has a strong presence. It is hard for change or new ideas to be passed since everything must be approved by the HQ in Korea. The employees do their best for the terms that have been set!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support and be flexible with your employees!

    I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company and brand is on the rise, quick to adapt to industry changes, and is challenging itself to increase quality and reputation. Complacency will sink your business in this industry and it is reassuring to see the company set higher standards for itself. Efforts to differentiate the brand and create its own personal identity/space in the industry are ongoing.

    Cons

    Fast follower in the industry, which is a good thing when it comes to processes. For vehicle design and model line up, there's too much focus on the Korean market and what is attractive or eye-catching overseas. Engineers and designers need to create vehicles with a deeper understanding of what consumers are seeing on the road in the US. This is because competition is much stiffer in the US as there's more to choose...

    Advice to Management

    Create distinct, consistent models of vehicles. Too many models come and go and there's not enough time to let each model develop a following or reputation. Foster and evolve the models, while trimming the fat and overlap.

        I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time

        Pros

        The people are great to work with both in corporate office and regions. Everyone is on the same page. Senior management is strong and very personal with all level employees.

        Cons

        The downside is the tight budget funding the company receives from its parent company and lack of aggressive buying from its finance arm. Really no other cons to mention, it's a great place to work.

        I worked at Hyundai Motor America

        Pros

        Many great people to learn from. The manager I worked with really cared about my goals and pushed to see I was compensated accordingly.

        Cons

        Sometimes work was bottle-necked when waiting for overseas communication, which was around 4-5pm earliest.
