LG Canada - looks good on paper, day-to-day reality sucks
Manager (Current Employee) – North York – 4 March 2013
Pros about working at LG Canada - big Global company on your resume - new office space, centrally located - small-office feel backed by global name - co-workers at generally pleasant (except some of the Korean Exchange worker are miserable and rude)
Cons - working hours: 8am to 5pm. Not allowed to work-at-home - culture shock if you are not Korean - expect long hours, no process, and last-minute requests that are crazy - expect to execute your job with minimal budget and support. This company does not operate with the size of budget that one would expect for a global corporation. Everything is cheap, from operating budgets to employee benefits. Its a no-frills environment - non-quality leadership - expected to be monitored, from your online activities to even at work (ie. people will notice when you are not at your desk)
In summary, they talk the talk of a global, big name company and culture, but when it comes down to it, you are just another body to get the work done.
Presenter (Current Employee) – Barcelona, Las Vegas, Berlin, Amsterdam – 27 March 2018
Let me be clear from the start, I am not a regular employee of LG but an independent contractor they hire to give presentations at various conventions. My experience in this regard has been nothing short of awesome. Very enjoyable work environment, good pay and kind people who give praise freely.
