SK Hynix Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
SK hynix Inc. (KRX: 000660) is a South Korean memory semiconductor supplier of dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) chips and flash memory chips. Hynix is the world's second-largest memory chipmaker (after Samsung Electronics) and the world's 3rd-largest semiconductor company. Founded as Hyundai Electronic Industrial Co., Ltd. in 1983 and known as Hyundai Electronics, the company has manufacturing sites in Korea, the United States, China and Taiwan. In 2012, when SK Telecom became its major shareholder, Hynix merged to SK Group (the third largest conglomerate in South Korea).
Former Employee - Sales says"Commodity memories designed, engineered and made in Korea and China sell themselves out to select customers with predictable forecast and pricing controlled by top suppliers. Sales operations take and process orders. Sales set up meetings and pass messages for HQ decision makers. Add some talking, writing and relating to US customers, the tasks are over. Relatively easy to give chosen customers what they want. Easy to just follow the market leader who set up the market first . So there can be a plenty of time for playing politics for internal cliques, protocols and bureaucracy."
Operations Manager (Former Employee) says"there is no work life balance and bad morale throughout this company. There is no process, roles and responsibility assigned to each of the work staff etc.free luncheslate hours"
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) says"Project plans can change at any time according to upper management's wishes with no input from engineers that are working on the projects. Company decides what the schedule should be with no input from middle management or engineers. Company has been low on staff for the last 3 years yet they push for schedules as if they have full staff. No work life balance. They bought this company 4 years ago and they are replacing more and more American employees with visa employees from Korea. Everyone that can leave are trying to leave. upper management like Korean employees because they can work them harder. They come in 8 in the morning and stay til 8 at night. They don't care about people. Old upper management acquired a team from Colorado and 2 years later new management decided to laid them off because they don't like dealing with a second office.free lunch and dinnerno work life balance"
Bottom Feeder (Current Employee) says"In my 10+ years in the industry, this is the worst place I have worked. I am stunned that people behave so badly; tantrums, management berating employees publicly, Korean language first (if you speak another foreign language, it is frowned upon). You will be subjected to gender bias. No room for advancement or process improvement. All company decisions, ALL, are finalized by Korea. Internal approval process is horrific and I can't believe the administrative costs just to process one transaction. Every single suggestion, transaction, requires not only local approvals, but approvals from headquarters. No management support. Do not apply here. They frown upon those who speak up or who do not conform to the culture. Absolutely NO diversity. Not a fun place to work.you get paidat the expense of your self respect"
Sales Manager (Former Employee) says"Beyond the free breakfast and lunch very little good to say about my multi year job with this company. If you aren't Korean and can't speak Korean you will struggle and have zero chance of advancement here. In fact if they can find a Korean to come over and do your job, goodbye to your job security."
Sales Operation (Current Employee) says"Pros: -snack days on Tuesdays and Thursdays. - free lunch - great heath benefits - HR team plans team building events Cons: - no room for growth within department"
VALIDATION/HW TEST ENGINEER (Former Employee) says"Contracting to Full time is very difficult to achieve. The free lunches are great and they encourage walking during lunch hours. The company tends to layoff whole teams and then later rehire a whole new team. The loyalty to the employee tends to be weak.Free lunchContracting to Full time is very difficult to achieve."
Sales Operations and Planner (Current Employee) says"it is ok to work no fun to work here the way to work is too korean"
