      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

      I worked at Hyundai Motor America full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The company has wonderful employees and great benefits including a monthly car allowance for some employees. It is also an exciting industry to be in.

      Cons

      Direction from parent corporation in Korea can be confusing and inconsistent.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on employee satisfaction and doing the right thing for employees.

      I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Paycheck every two weeks. Manager level receives a car stipend. Holiday shutdown. Ok benefits. Onsite gym that no one has time to use. Product has improved and lineup is finally being mixed. There are some talented folks here which you may be fortunate to work with. Your satisfaction will entirely depend on which department you are in and who is your SGM. There are a number of people who are happy but...

      Cons

      ... most folks would gladly take a lateral job elsewhere regardless of what they state in “confidential” employee surveys. Large amount of leadership/SGMs are ineffective and/or have poor insincere people skills. COO and new CEO seem to be good hires and smart, but have bigger issues than low morale. Dealers do not like us and hate Genesis which is also apparently a worse place to work unless marketing. Regions do not...

      Advice to Management

      Bad move kicking off your “Let’s make Hyundai a great place to work again” 2019 campaign with a mandatory all day HR session about proper manners and micro-aggressions. Couldn’t the kick-off have been something more rewarding and light-hearted? More importantly, how about not promoting folks to begin with who are known to make everyone else not feel great? How about our doing the job of several people at other OEs and...

      I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      In general, employees are great but VP level is filled with uninspiring men who don't have the skills to be true leaders.

      Cons

      Finance managed company results in constrained resources (headcount and budget) leading to overworked employees, lack of work-life balance, burn-out and high turnover. Constant directional change leaves little time for well thought out planning and execution resulting in half baked programs. Administrative processes are lengthy and inefficient.

      Advice to Management

      Empower your employees to make decisions and pay them what they are worth.

      I worked at Hyundai Motor America

      Pros

      Good product , lots of potential.

      Cons

      Unskilled management, don’t care about rank and file, don’t recognize employees over the top efforts. Glass ceiling between Korean and US management; Koreans have all the power and no idea how to control market. Want to work somewhere you have no voice or opportunity? Welcome to HMA

      Advice to Management

      Quit now and avoid further embarrassment.

        Pros

        Nice building, and easy. Low stress depending on the department you work in. Some good people work here. Building has a gym and cafeteria. Very good 401k matching.

        Cons

        Decisions that matter are only made by the Koreans. You won’t be able to have an impact on design of the vehicle, what vehicles gets produced, what feature sets, etc. Merrit increases are often below industry standard. A lot of office politics playing nasty games instead of focusing on the product. Promotions and advancements are difficult or even blocked from moving to a different group. Ability to grow and learn...

        Pros

        Product is great and building is new. American staff is great and very inclusive, collaborative and innovative. Parking structure is nice no getting into hot car interior. Lunch at the beach for some divisions.

        Cons

        The HR Department has reached new all time lows under new leadership. They protect the bad executives and they even get promoted. Korean coordinators are out of their league in the US market. They are not held accountable. CEO, and current executives not capable of creating a direction “we can believe in”.

        Advice to Management

        HMC needs to reset with new leadership or bring back former successful executives.
