lack of benefits, low salary, no appreciation or recognition by management
Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – December 24, 2014
1. Descent work and life balance
- Overtime happens pretty often but not every day, depending on your job, but Korean client will call you even on the weekends
2. Extra holidays (3 days)
- 3 of the major Korean holidays are observed so you get extra days off on top of the US holidays.
3. Year end incentive
- big check
4. Great work place if you are familiar with Korean culture or speak Korean
1. General manager and Director changes every 2-3 years.
- such a pain to get adjusted to different management. trust me they all have different rules and preferences.
2. Low salary
- No matter your work experience, the basic salary to start off is $3000. It increases by 1-3% annually.($100 if you are lucky).
3. 10 PTOs, 5 sick days with no call-in
- No matter how long you've worked here you only have 10 PTOs and 5 sick days which you need to bring a doctor's note every time. No personal days to run errands. You have to use your PTOs for that.
- New director told employees to come to work in the morning of your sick day to get an approval from the director to make sure that you are really sick. Basically, you cannot call in sick. (Isn't this against the labor law? not sure but it's harsh enough)
-someone could only get 3 days off, including weekend, for deceased mother.
4. Absence of mid-management
- There's a person who is supposedly doing mid managerial work for local employees but nothing is done by him
- If you have a complaint about your job then the mid-manager will tell you to go to the director not him.
5. No coworker happy hours
- no fun
