What is the company culture like at Cheil Worldwide?

Pros

Great people to work with. Great office location(Itaewon). Lots of big clients to work with.

Cons

The organization getting old as the corporate doesn't care about millennials and GenZ employees. The internal culture and working process NEEDS to be changed for more agile and effective work.

Advice to Management

Please listen to young employees before you lost your future.

How was the interview at Cheil Worldwide?

Pros

You get drinks on Friday - only if a certain number of people complete their times sheet. The office is nice and has a good location. Loads of nice places to eat and a downstairs cafe.

Cons

At Cheil, I felt very ostracized from what was going on. During the interview, I was told that the role would be very exciting - it was the complete opposite. For a whole year, I was bored with very little to do. The manager wasn't very good at managing and much prefered to work and keep lots of things to himself. When he wasnt in, that was when everything would get thrown at me and I’d suddenly find out what was going on. I would always ask what's going on, is there anything to do but he never wanted me to know about anything. He preferred I managed myself - which was fine - but then would take credit for all the work I had done as though it was him who had initiated it. I flagged this up to management on 3 occasions and nothing was done to improve things. All they cared about was ’image’ and making sure things looked good even though nothing was ever getting done. After months of being bored and the stress of constantly trying to be involved in work became endless. There is also a 3rd floor and 1st floor rivalry and people from other teams don't like working together. No career progression.

Advice to Management

Make sure work is divided and everyone knows what is going on; also teach managers how to manage.

What is the hiring process like 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.
