Poor of everything

I never recommend this company to others. Everyone who works there wants to get out after working for 6 months. Tons of work and poor management. Koreans are the majority of this company.

Pros

building is clean

Cons

everything is bad

Poor working environment

Especially if your not Korean. Very little English spoken in the Englewood Cliffs office. LGCNS is out of touch with American business needs. Too much reliance and decision making in Seoul!

Pros

Koreans are generally pleasant people

Cons

Terrible working environment for Americans

IT company, but managed by non-IT people

This is a IT consulting company, but actually the managements are not-IT people. due to lack of IT resource, the work system is a structure that is dependent on the HQ team. Each engineer have to perform multiple roles such as customer service, server engineering, database management as well as development. It is good to have a job here in starting of your career because you can earn a title of brand 'LG' in your resume, but I don't feeling that there is room to grow your career as an SE. Overtime work is required to achieve the customer satisfaction that your supervisor expected. In addition, there are many cases where the team cooperates with a Korean team, you need to work overtime often. Salary levels are also lower than industry averages. Also, the rate of salary increase is unlikely to rise to 1 ~ 2%. Only those who can take these disadvantages work in this place.

Overload

they require your personal life should be sacrificed. There was no work and life balance. And the work environment is not professional. There was a bully and manager did not try to resolve that

Your experience matters.

Help out others considering your employer. Rate your employer.

Warm work environment

Hard work, but a good place to work. Many people work overtime always but they all try to make their work very well. Sometimes the micromanagement makes people get sick.

Productive and fun workplace

I worked as a temp employee and it has been a wonderful experience working with such a great group of people. I learned a lot from colleagues who are kind and helpful. They provide a good healthcare plan.

Pros

Bagel Day on Fridays

Fun to work, lots of work, lack of staffs, expect overtime, horrible management.

For Koreans Only. Do not bother applying if you are not Korean or bilingual. Overall benefits and job securities are great. They will not fire you unless you have huge problem. Do not think of getting bonus or compensation if you are not a manager, senior manager, or director. Salary is horrible compared to non-Korean companies. Great for learning works as an entry-level only. Managers or upper will have to work overtime no matter what. Beware of horrible management and directors.

Pros

Good Benefits.

Cons

Horrible managements.

Intolerable culture,but they have table tennis

S. Korean culture is prevalent here. Very hierarchical and if you are an American your word or opinion weighs very little. When you are at the bottom of the totem pole you feel like a sore thumb. They like to hire "contracts" and out source their jobs to pay them no benefits even when contract workers do the same job or better. On the bright side they have table tennis tables.

Pros

Discounted lunches

Cons

No budget for equipment or support, but they replace & pay for the company presidents luxury car every year.

Horrible work/life balance

You will have to work as more than 3 in 1 here. Therefore, overtime is mandatory. But the benefit is good in this area. if you are single and almost entry level, here is good place to learn many things.

Pros

Health Insurance, Lunch allowance

Cons

Overtime

Fast Pace, Always Busy,

A typical day is never the same! One minute you're working on your daily tasks/assignments to troubleshooting minor and major issues. All new projects and customer requirements are defined within corporate parent company in South Korea, so be prepared to translate and project management at a moment’s notice. Overall, good opportunity for an individual seeking a challenging work environment.
