    Juggernaut

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIncredible technology. Very ambitious company. Will dominate for the foreseeable future. Lot of opportunity internally to advance. Treat employees and junior staff very well. Generous with social events and team building. Often provide gifts to all staff at times of key local holidays. Reasonably philanthropic.

    ConsFocus on reporting back to HQ as a priority versus dealing with key customer/partner or other local market focus and priorities. An over abundance of employees sent from HQ to regions to monitor staff performance. Rotational management from HQ sent to run subsidiaries do not always possess appropriate skills or the time to adjust to the local scenario.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore attention should be paid to local clients, partners and customers and less attention on HQ's expectations.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Contract work for very specific and unique project

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC

    ProsHuge learning experience, opened doors to future opportunities. Is a global company so will have access to many different facets of the business.

    ConsWork ethic in corporate culture especially with senior managment can be intense and demanding. Very strong Korean culture can be difficult when expressing ideas to korean team, sometimes will encounter language barriers that slow efficiency. Not enough women in senior roles.

    Advice to Senior Managementpromote based on ability and not seniority. Promote more women in senior roles, break out of the conservative shell. Less Korean influence in a North American company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
