Difficult to advance
Connected Car Analyst (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 4, 2015
Too big a company to generalize under one umbrella. There are many up's and down's to working in a large corporation. Especially when in the end, the final decision comes from overseas.

Good company, low salary
Regional Analyst (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAMarch 12, 2015
Great starting company for anyone seeking to be in the automotive industry-corporate side. A lot of politics. You work for Koreans who will work you to the bone with a low salary.

Pros

Very politically motivated

Telematics Engineering team has poor management
Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CASeptember 25, 2014
The Managers don't know what they are doing. The type of work is easy to learn and anyone with some intelligence can learn to be a tester there in the Telematics group.
I felt that they treat people unfairly, and even if one has the highest performance and works the hardest, doesn't mean that they are going to be promoted to a better position. Not fair and fun at all.
Pros
nice building, flexible hours
Cons
management is poor in the telematics engineering department

Senior Corporate Paralegal (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAApril 2, 2012
This was a fast paced environment which required alot of multi-tasking as it involved various aspects of coordination of the dealer body. It also required adherence to various state and reguatory statutes and being able to communicate ably and clearly to the various business departments supported by Legal. My co-workers were wonderful and supportive. The hardest part of the job was changes in management and the most wonderful part of the job was the energetic pace at which this particular position moved. There was never a dull day and I always felt like I was learning something new.
