    Pros

    Has a relatively free and flexible culture which is a rare trait in Korea. It is also one of few places where a CPA can have the exclusivity and professionalism as a group of CPAs.

    Cons

    Below-par compensation and almost no additional benefits, work hours could vary from 40 hrs a week to 70 hours a week in extreme cases depending on teams.

    Advice to Management

    Share more.
