    - Directors will steal your work to make themselves look good to their VPs - The pay is garbage - way below industry rate - HR is completely incompetent to handle any situation - mostly focuses on events and stupid perks like cheap toys imported from China with the Samsung logo slapped on it - Managers will undermine you - Employees gossip non-stop - Very low productivity - Korean top-down management - No communication skills in anyone - If you're female, you'll get sexually harassed at work at least twice a year - Managers will manipulate you undermine you - Managers hire pretty girls for 'culture fit' to improve office morale, meanwhile demoralizing all the engineers who worked hard to get their jobs - Everyone has a weak skill set with no product knowledge - Majority of employees have a drinking problem - No stocks/shares offered - Everyone is looking for a new job/interviewing - The nicest people in the company are the security guards and janitors - Constant layoffs - 15% churn every year - HR doesn't care enough about recruiting events so they send engineers to attend them - Only focuses on very low impact projects like building websites, no innovation - No promotion opportunities
