    I have been working at LG Chem (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and clean enviroment to work. People are to themselves or friendly. Better then average pay. Seasons for lots of overtime.

    Cons

    If you work in assembly be prepared to work a month straight maybe two months with a day off if you choose to After 14 days. And yes they are mandatory weekends . you can call off and mandated workday if thier are enough operators. Which is rarely the case.

    Advice to Management

    We need leaders I've noticed senior techs are not leader like material despite thier knowledge. Organization could be better.

    I worked at LG Chem full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    LG Chem is a global leader in lithium ion battery technology. The benefits are pretty good. Very diverse. The company hires a disproportionate amount minorities and females (compared to the demographic makeup of the company's location).

    Cons

    The company is micro-managed from across the world. If you work at a U.S. branch of the company you will be treated as a second-class employee. If you are female, you will be treated as a second-class employee. The American management is good, however, the American management only has so much power. Lower-level factory worker hires even need to be approved by HQ in Korea. It is difficult to get things done or improve the product/production when every detail is micromanaged from across the world.

    Advice to Management

    The American branches of the company can exceed the company's expectations if HQ in Korea and would allow them to just do their jobs.

    LG Chem Batteries Troy

    Power hungry, micro manager, selfish CEO
    People are treated as "tools"
    No culture
    Horrible working environment
    Korean appointed CFOs run the company and useless CEO cares about his/her career NOT the best interests of people/company

    Advice to Management

    LG Chem Batteries Troy

    Change your 70's style management else let 21st century oriented leaders run the business. Accept that you are the reason that talents leave the company.

    Great company to work for. Well prepared for any training and the leadership skills are well designed for anyone that does not have no experience.
