What kind of career opportunities exist at Cheil Worldwide?

Pros

I meet some great people there, but only had good times outside of the office

Cons

They will work you into the ground, and it's all corporate-level work. Benefits are not that great, and it feels like they indirectly get mad for not being online at all hours. I worked a lot of weekends and even at times working for 4-6 weeks straight. A lot of the employees work so hard just for internal content or higher-up presentations for Samsung. The workflow process is one of the worst I've seen. On my first day there, I was immediately put to work within my first 5 minutes and told that a project needed to be done by EOD. I had no time to adjust, and now, that project is long gone and it felt like it was for nothing. There are plenty of times where teams are at the office until 2-3 AM while higher up's head out early. I remember a time where I was staying late while the head of office and CEO left to go to a baseball game, but before they left, they came in and bragged about it and also mentioned it was free. There was also another time I was struggling to take equipment inside and the CEO just walked by and offered no help and did not even acknowledge me. People bow down to him because he is supposed "Koren Royalty". No opportunity to grow, more of a stay in your line work environment. Hints of some racist, sexist comments made by director-level people, who happen to be white. Not much diversity, either Asian or white. Deadlines are unreasonably tight for no reason, and it seems like other teams in the company don't take others' time into consideration. A lot of the creative work is developed by people who don't have a great professional background or seem to be more business people instead of creatives. Whatever salary you are offered go ahead and break that down by 50-60 hours a week and see how much you getting paid, don't base it off 40 hours a week. 40 hours is a dream work week, but even then, the stress is too much for non-competitive pay.

Advice to Management

Stop bending over backward for clients and start putting your staff first.

office, people, locacation, flexible working hours, very casual dresscode

no trainings, no self-development, no chance for promotion, old hardware, PMs without experience and basic skills, forced overtime

Advice to Management
