    Pros

    Amazing benefits. The pay is great and the insurance can't be beat. Good 401k contribution. Lots of different technologies to learn and get involved with.

    Cons

    Management puts to much pressure on to few team members with drive instead of holding all team members to the same standard. Management has no teeth to correct problems with underworking individuals while simultaneously expecting a few to carry the load. Also dealing with Korean culture can be extremely difficult. There is a big gap in the way Americans show respect and how Koreans​ show and perceive it leading to conflict.

    Advice to Management

    Hold individuals accountable.

    Pros

    Good opportunities and experience. Great benefits and compensation. Will learn a lot from people that's been in industry a while.

    Cons

    Cultural barriers are very difficult to overcome and are often impenetrable. Very little opportunities to move up because of the way the hierarchy is set up. Micromanagement is imbedded in the culture of this company, if you can get past this, you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Please decrease the micromanaging ways that's encouraged and often requested by ex-patriots.

    Pros

    The work is fairly easy and no one can disrespect you or treat you unfairly due to the team relations system. Good benefits and good pay for non skilled labor.

    Cons

    Team leaders are lazy not all but most. Safety doesn't do their job only concerned about safety glasses. No retirement plan. They take too long to hire temps with some working 4+ years but it's ok because they can be replaced easily.

    Advice to Management

    Cons
