    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I can have experience to develop real device.
    It's very hard to get change to develop real device. I thinks so.

    Cons

    Not bad. You can choose LG.
    But salary is not high comparing competior's salary.
    And the culture is Korean style. I think so.

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to recommand to work at LG.
    Though it's Korean company, it's very attractive to work.
    It' good company to work.
