    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Lg Electronics Alabama full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Provide very good benefit package and multiple online learning program and training to the employees; the employee efforts on the work will reflect on the reward or incentives.

    Cons

    Employee, to be improved on the new product knowledge, has to be ready for the assignment or project when the business demands. To be educated through the training program is essential way plus the self-initiative.

    Advice to Management

    At least one HR staff in the branch office that will be better for employee.

    I worked at Lg Electronics Alabama full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Outside of the great benefits, LG provided a great opportunity to learn new skills. Was able to advance from entry level position to advanced position. Met and worked with a lot of intelligent people and learned a lot during my time there.

    Cons

    Glass ceiling for non-Koreans. This is very much a Korean company in the US which is hampered by copying their blue competition and refusal to incorporate other cultures into the company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and drop the barrier between Korean employees and non-Koreans. In order to be a truly global company, you have to have a truly global culture.

    Pros

    Great benefits, fantastic coworkers and friendly people

    Cons

    Company is hampered from very poor upper management. Company only looks at numbers on a spreadsheet and does not balance it with reality. Performance numbers are pushed very hard so there is a lot of "fudging" of the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the numbers on a spreadsheet with what is really happening. Question the information on a spreadsheet and look beyond what someone submits.

    I have been working at Lg Electronics Alabama full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    LG Alabama has employed some great people. Coworkers are like family. LG offers great benefits. Able to transfer to another department if a position is available.

    Cons

    Manpower is low which puts more on current employees. Yearly raises are minimal. Live/ work balance is talked about but that is about it. Korean culture may be difficult for some. Very number oriented company and does not look at the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more of a work/life balance with competitive pay and turnover will not be as high. Offer real training for new hires.

    Pros

    The foreign nationals within the company have a lot of pride with regards to the organization. They have a strong drive to be "number 1" within the industry and are proud of their brand name and products.

    Cons

    There are few opportunities for advancement if you do not fit a specific demographic. The leadership consist of mainly foreign national employees. The company is focused on conducting business the "LG Way", which does not always run in tandem with US laws and the customary way to do business in the US.

    Advice to Management

    To be aware of where you are conducting business and the need to diversify your management teams to include more females and members of other ethnic groups. LG is a global product, therefor their workforce and leadership should be reflective of such.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits! Great Salary! Paid Holidays, PTO more than ample! Fantastic Co-Workers, very Talented!

    Cons

    Stress Level is at the top of the meter. Work load placed upon Employees by Management is beyond Unrealistic due to Budget and Payroll Cuts, as well as ongoing Hiring Freezes. Long-Term Employees once considered as an Asset to the Company eventually become a Liability due to Salary Increases, extended PTO Days accumulated, etc. Loyal, Long-Term Employees are routinely replaced by Contract Workers, eliminating any expenses related to the cost of Employee Benefits, Holiday Pay, PTO, etc. Management is Reactive, not Proactive, adopting a somewhat "Knee-Jerk" Mind Set in regards to the normal Work Flow Process. Right Hand has no idea what the Left Hand is doing to put it in simple terms. Korean Management is Driven by "Numbers", more focused on "Bean Counting" when the focuse should be on true Customer Service to ensure all of the Loyal LG Customers are rewarded with the Sterling Customer Service Experience they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Management would benefit greatly by simply stepping back a bit and truly look at how Management currently views and treats their Employees. Never ending Stress and Pressure to Produce and Perform does nothing but instill Fear and Distrust in the Employees. Management has no clue as to why the Employee Morale is Depressingly Low and getting worse by the day. Management needs to embrace the understanding that Employees cannot be expected to "Give their All" when each and every day that Employee has to force themselves to go to work wondering if this is going to be the day they are going to be Fired. This very thought is on the minds of countless current LG. Employees. Management can start by simply acknowledging the Employees, a Smile and a few Kind and Encouraging Words would make a World of Difference! Include the Employees and make them feel like they are a part of things. Schedule periodic meetings to keep the Employees informed as to their Progress, recognizing their Accomplishments and let it be known that the Employees are the Backbone of LG and the Success of the Company comes from a large part due to the Talent, Skills and Loyalty of their Employees. If only Management will take the time to see that the current Management Protocol is not and has not been working and look past the end of their nose to see that implementing the simple suggestions noted cost LG Nothing. However, the return LG will see will be Priceless!

    Consider Organization Capability and company culture for specific service. Good place to work, but low compensation. Fair competition and promotion, but bright.
