Former Employee - Assistant says"Unfortunately, you end up having to use the health benefits to handle the stress and the pressure to work even if you are sick. Also, there is a definite divide among expats and non-Korean employees. Many of the managers play favoritism and do not appreciated staff. There is little to no room for career growth and you are expected to work more for no reasonable compensation. They are constantly trying to give you more work without any recognition and give you a performance evaluation without understanding your actual roles and responsibilities include."
