    Pros

    You get to work a significant amount of overtime and make however many hours you are willing to put in

    Cons

    The company does not care about your personal life. Company constantly asks to stay late hours and weekends, and even holidays at times. Work done at the company is reiterative and very inefficient. Company hierarchy is very strict as most upper management are ex-pats from Korea.
    Career growth is non-existent almost without a significant amount of time before a promotion.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth if you get in the right department.

    Cons

    The top executives rotate in from Korea every 3 to 4 years, so there is never long term goals for the company. They are only interested in their own success.
    Sometimes important meeting will start out in English and then convert the Korean. Very unproductive for non-Korean speaking employees. At one time they said they were going to conduct all meeting in english but they never followed though.

    Advice to Management

    In order to be truly successful you must seek market information from local individuals/resources. You have created a gap between your Korean - non-Korean employees which will limit your future success. You treat your top executive better than you treat your customers and they notice it.

    Benefits are good. That really is about it.

    Get your HR right. Localize. Empower your people. Stop treating them like expendables. Stop comparing yourself against Samsung. What the heck?
