    I have been working at LG Electronics (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work for a world leading brand. Great exposure to latest technology and how MNE's function. Good company who look after their employees

    Cons

    I can not think of any down sides to working for LG. Working weekends is never ideal but that was the job when I signed up for it

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. Technology we have is brilliant, expecially with OLED. We are increasingly becoming more prominent in the market and Life's Good.

    Pros

    Cheap deals on TVs
    It's hard to find any pros about this place

    Cons

    Korean culture meant it was difficult to get anything done if you weren't Korean. Not a great place to work

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff like humans rather than machines and adhere to UK standards of employment

  3. "LG (UK) - OK if you are Korean, tough if you are not."

    I have been working at LG Electronics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Korean management are trying to act more internationally, but have a long way to go. Their products are good, which gives the company a good product brand image.

    Cons

    They have some very talented and dedicated local ( i.e. non-Korean) employees, but management decision making is very top-down. The Korean staff blindly obey, showing total compliance, but often the impact on the business at local level is counter-productive. This demotivates the local staff. Their mobiles products used to lead the market, but they have lost their way in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Dramatically reduce the proportion of Korean staff, or train the Koreans to be more assertive upwards.

    "Better not work here if you are not a Korean. Most of the non-Korean employees have left the company."
