    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at LG Electronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Still looking for the pros. This company has cut all employee team building activities. It is a no-fun company.

    Cons

    Overworked, promotion based on time served and not merit. Managers feel they can shout at you anytime. Process is too long and winded to get anywhere in time. Company reacts to market instead of leading. Upper management too focused on assigning blame instead of resolving issues and moving forward. No support to staff in terms of work-life balance. You are expected to work until you drop.

    I have been working at LG Electronics for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting projects to get involved in Decent benfits, e.g. canteen discount, healthcare.

    Cons

    Bad company culture - senior management do not treat employees well low salary and no expectations of promotions - they basically want cost effective button pushers, not forward thinking, pro active workers. Not good work/life balance Expect to be shouted at by managers Bias towards Korean staff. Need to give equal opportunities to non Korean employees!

  5. "Very korean company"

    4.0
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England

    I have been working at LG Electronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stability, company is growing and making profit. Work-life balance is ok depending on the divisions: Sales and marketing more sacrifice requested. Finance, Order management logistics and other back-office functions more stable 9 to 5.30 working shifts

    Cons

    Salary below average and not aligned even internally (similar roles with very different salaries). Very Korean, if you know what I mean. Most business decisions are top down and it's not always possible to find a logic in it. It's not difficult to ask "Why A instead of B?" and get an answer like "Because Mr. X said so". Many decisions are not taken locally by the sales subsidiaries but are heavily influenced by the Korean HQ decisions.

    I have been working at LG Electronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unfortunately there are not any!

    Cons

    The headline says it all as work/life balance does not factor into the Management's singular objective to increase the bottom line. Working weekends and holidays to complete the work of 3 HC is normal and not appreciated. Little to no support from HR/Management resulting in high turnover and employee burnout.
