Productive workplace with an distinct work culture
Web Developer (Former Employee) – Fountain Valley, CA – August 24, 2016
Being a web developer at Hyundai is different than other medium to large scale enterprises. Hyundai utilizes state-of-the-art architectures and industry-proven methods to accomplish their goals. And the work culture here is more fixed on quantity and quality over compensation/benefits and work/life balance.
A typical workday would consist of going to work, doing a daily meeting, completing required programming tasks, and wrapping up for the day. This arrangement provides a few pros such as keeping work transparent and making projects manageable but presents cons such as working overtime and juggling multiple tasks that aren't in your scope. And its simply part of the Korean company culture.
Co-workers at Hyundai dress professionally for the week (except on casual Fridays), and understands business etiquette and best practices. Overall, I enjoyed working with the co-workers. As well as communicating with them, we each learned something from each other.
The hardest part of the job is being able to understand code from previous developers, and extending that technical flow so that everyone is on the same page. But besides code maintenance, new features such as embedding Google Map, and implementing Android Auto are quite enjoyable.
Overall, Hyundai provided me a stage to execute enterprise level projects using the latest technologies.
