    Pros

    Good People work here and most mean well. Excellent benefits package.

    Cons

    LG management is forever trying to figure out ways not to pay bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest with your local region employees and stop pretending that you genuinely care about their careers or their welfare. It's obviously lip service and we're not as dumb as you think we are. By withholding bonuses you are changing our compensation after the fact and are encouraging us to use LG to gain experience we can use elsewhere.

    I have been working at LG Mobile Phones full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The team of people I worked with were great, making going to work each day fun and exciting. I was able to learn many new skills, become an expert in many areas that I am able to use throughout my career.

    Cons

    The biggest obstacle (s) are culture based if you do not speak the Korean language. Communication is key in our line of work, so you are at a disadvantage if you do not speak the language regardless of how experience or good you are at doing your job.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to relay clear direction for the team so that everyone can focus on the same end goal. Communicating this at an early stage can help build a solid foundation with the team.

    Pros

    Unfortunately separated from this company before know any Pros.

    Cons

    The multi-national company does global business however they doesn't have appropriate mind and system.

    Work environment ; Lack of respect , better to say insulting each others , full of gossip and mischief, Unfair treatment and evaluation

    Professionalism ; Lack of process and logic,
    Miscommunication and Disconnection between management and staff, subsidiaries and HQ, and Koreans and non-Korean employees

    Management;
    Unbalanced allocation of resource
    No leadership

    I DO agree on the someone else's earlier comment 'wrong people in wrong jobs' at this page

     Their process was such a chaos in my entire experience with this company
    Hopefully would be better in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Do study on your industry and benchmark others . Don't fear new idea , don't get threaten by new system and different perception. Don't compete internally and compete with your real rival out of the same organization.

    Stop resting on past successes and get ahead of the curve.

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

    Not bad. You can choose LG.
    But salary is not high comparing competior's salary.

    Though it's Korean company, it's very attractive to work.
