    I worked at LG International full-time

    Pros

    Supervisors are open their minds to change current strategies and processes. Salary is better than other big Korean companies for the similar positions. There are many opportunities to work abroad as it has more than 50 foreign branch offices.

    Cons

    There is still traditionally negative Korean culture such as working overtime and having lots of a bit mandatory unnecessary dining out with coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Giving more clear directions will lead to the company's overall success

    I have been working at LG International full-time

    Pros

    1. Good Place to Learn and Experience above the level of Staffs from other companies
    2. Wage is decent enough
    3. Lot more chances to live/travel abroad(albeit not always in well-developed countries)

    Cons

    1. 'Macho' style culture(lot of scolding/abusive verbal attacks/limitation on hairstyles etc.)
    2. Absolute lack of respect for personal life(It could be hard to become a good dad, but then again, lot of Korean companies are still like this)
    3. Lack of real intent and ambition from the current management
    4. Lack of experience in mining industry leading to lack of structure/process(although it is one of better companies in Korea)

    Advice to Management

    Be Ambitious(but realistic)
