Heard from former colleague that it’s hard to grow if you aren’t Korean.

Worked with them for many years as a client. It’s intense, thankless and very high pressure. I wouldn’t join it. Also, the perception I heard internally is that there’s a glass ceiling as to how senior you can get, due to cultural factors.

Worked with them across Europe and Asia. Would not join.

Had an Uber driver who used to be high up there (he drives for social reasons) tell me back in the day the execs used to expense escorts on the company card

I don’t believe people who say they drive Uber for social reasons but used to be a high up somewhere... if you have money, you have better ways to spend time and socialize than driving Uber

Coincidentally I just had a friend ask me if I knew anyone who might be interested in their mobile strategy & analytics team in Plano, TX. He says it’s a decent lifestyle (step up from financial services firms he worked at previously), but the culture is definitely Korean. For example when they recently relocated corporate from NJ to TX, management was apparently surprised that anyone said no to moving, and people were given a rather short time to move or leave the firm. On the off chance anyone is interested though, DM me and I can send you some details.

My uncle is samsung brokerage director and my cousin is a senior manager on electronics side. Both get paid well but work immensely including most weekends. Generally i shy away from korean companies. Unless youre some hot shot getting scouted, not worth the trouble

How can we inculcate the same behaviour in contractors?
