    Pros

    Overall LG as a whole treats employees very well (benefits, vacation, bonuses etc).

    Cons

    Your job is not secure, you have to back up everything that you do with documentation and picture proving why something happened. We spent more time writing reports than actually fixing the problems.
    Workinng in the plant is not a 9-10 hour day job, the tasks given to you can easily push you to a 14-15 hour day with no overtime pay and no support or thanks from management.
    If something breaks in the production area, you better have an answer for why it is broken and WHO broke it, more time was spent blaming people than working to find a solution and prevent it.
    The plant is segregated by department, each department works to protect themselves even if it means throwing other departments under the bus.
    Since the start the plant was segregated, work is pushed from person to person until it is just forgotten about and defend yourself with anything you do.
    Overall hostile work environment worrying about your job and not to get attacked by management or other departments

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that are on the floor everyday. Dont ask for our opinion and then say we are always wrong.
    Dont hire motivated people that can work and then tell them exactly what to do and how to do it from behind a closed door.
    Dont lie to employees about work life balance, the production facility was designed for a 9.5 hour day that turned into a standard 12 hour day minimum for all employees
