I have been working at Hyundai America Technical Center full-time for more than 3 years
Pay and benefits are average, US staff (only) handled the COVID crisis well, clean place, company parties and lunches for holidays
Every team has Korean coordinators who are here in the US to run projects and keep an eye on the US teams. They are 100% unaccountable for anything they do or how they act. They are not officially... managers, but have all the same power and authority. They rotate out every 4 years, and then the team is a complete mess because the new guy wants to show his bosses back in Korea that he is in charge, and he begins causing chaos all over again. They will tear down team members to help their friends, hide information (what they do best), and make life miserable for anyone who doesn't kiss their hand. They have input into everyone's reviews, but aren't part of the 360 review process (we can't say anything about them!), and US managers don't give coordinators a review. Working with the coordinators is an exercise in being in an abusive relationship. No matter what you do, it's never good enough, always wrong, too slow, and will never measure up to what the lowliest engineer in Korea can do over his lunch break, because you are fat and lazy US staff. If you disagree or try to resist, you will be put down instantly. Spending every day apologizing and pretending that you are wrong and stupid when you are not, will drain the life out of you. You'll hate your job and you'll despise yourself for accepting it and dooming yourself to a life of servitude and useless busywork. You'll never be proud to show your family what work is like for you. If you need a job with pay and benefits, but have no self-esteem, then this is the place for you. You could work here temporarily until someplace less soul-sucking comes along. In the long term, it is not worth the money. The people who have been here for 10 years or more, all look and act dead inside. They just play the game, take their paycheck and go home. And then cry themselves to sleep for giving up their career hopes and dreams to this company.
Advice to Management
Push to get rid of coordinators, stand up for US teams, make coordinators accountable for their behavior and put them in 360 reviews
