    Pros

    Experienced managers who care about you as an employee and as a person. Good products with a great potential.

    Cons

    Constant executive management turnover. Focus on the short term rather than the longer term strategy needed to build an enduring brand.

    Adapt your strategy to the specific needs to the US automotive market and focus on long term growth.

    I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time

    Pros

    Some of the pros for working at Hyundai are good benefits, good job security, beautiful new corporate office, located in CA

    Cons

    Pay is extremely inconsistent among employees who have similar jobs, pay is often much higher for those who were hired from outside the company compared to those who originated and grew with the company, little growth opportunity, promotions based on minimum 2 year tenure in a position rather than performance, poor management staff, unrealistic sales/performance objectives set by Korean oversight, company often hires...

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the two year tenure requirement for promotions and better train staff managers on how to manage a team

    Pros

    Like most places, who you report to is the key to career satisfaction. Wish I hadn't left.

    Cons

    My only negative is why didn't the company grow faster, and why do they keep changing presidents?

    I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Hyundai still has some good people left. There are many employees that have worked at Hyundai for quite a few years.

    Cons

    There is a big leadership void since Hyundai consistently fires its top management so many of the remaining leaders are afraid to make decisions. Thus it feels at times like there is no clear direction.

    Advice to Management

    HMC needs to empower HMA's leaders and make sure it does not fire any more of HMA' s top remaining leaders.
