Hello World, PanGyo
SK Planet to Start Its New Era in Pangyo!
It’s already been more than a month since we moved into our new shiny building in Pangyo.
When our company was right near Euljiro Station, it made everything so much easier. We would just walk under the subway passageway whenever it would rain or snow and we would have so many options to choose from for lunch since we were in the center of Myongdong and Jongro. I thought maybe some things would be inconvenient in Pangyo like commuting in this cold, cold winter weather. Not to mention less food places and shops to explore.
First day of work in Pangyo! I got on the shuttle bus that takes us to the new pangyo building.
So warm and comfy! Being in the cold weather and being unfamiliar with directions to the new location, I got on the bus that picks me up so conveniently right in front of my house. The bus picked me right up at 9 o’clock sharp. Very nice. I saw a few familiar faces on the bus. Even though it wasn’t that early, there were some that were sleeping already (they must have been working really hard.)
So my first day at work in Pangyo started off very good with excitement and curiosity. When I arrived at the new building, I noticed all things new from the new entrance system to the new elevator system. I walked around the building with my co-workers to explore—we went up to the rooftop which was very nice, all covered with snow, and then up to reception rooms, employee lounge, the gym and the cafeteria. They were all very new, and it seemed like when they built the building, they took welfare facilities into consideration, which is a plus for all of us.
We also have a new library, which has a totally different look than the one we had in Seoul, but it is still in progress. While it’s being finished, the employees can have access to Safari books online which are provided for each team, which can be more convenient than going down to the library to get the books.
Ok so the lunch time finally came! My co-workers and I decided to go out in “town” to grab our first grandiose lunch in Pangyo! To go over to where all the restaurants are, we have to walk over a somewhat-long bridge, which seemed like a little bit of pain but if you really think about it, the walking distance is no different than it was in Myongdong.
To add a little bit more explanation on the facilities in the building, each conference room can be reserved, using the NFC tag. The names of the conference rooms are named after the planets in Star Wars—Ambria, Bespin, Carida, etc.
By now, you might ask which part of the building is my favorite. I’m going to have to say, definitely the lounge on the third floor. The café sells delicious beverages like coffees and juices and few pastries. Some have casual meetings at the lounge and others go down to the lounge to take a break and catch up with each other. Our building has a nice view not only from inside but also from outside, especially at night from the bridge when all the lights are on
It’s been a month since the move-in and here are my thought on the new work environment.
The building itself is awesome with no doubt and it’s nice that we’re able to see and interact with each other more often now that all SKP employees are placed in one location. The new bus system is very convenient for all of us. The bus schedules are carefully prepared, and they were being constantly updated based on our opinions. The overall color theme for the office space is green which helps make our eyes less tired.

SKP employees enjoy their new space and furnitures when they have a free time.
In addition, we also have a new roof garden, we're totally look forward to summer party there!
아! 또 판교사옥 오면서 사원증도 새로 발급받았답니다. 다들 멋지고 개성 있는 포즈와 소품으로 각자의 가장 멋진 모습으로 사원증 사진을 촬영했습니다. 전사 사원증 사진 컨테스트 영광의 1등 2등 사진을 살짝 공개합니다~:)
It has been an exciting 3 years for SK planet, and we look at this new location as the start of another chapter in our history. We're still working on getting settled in and setting server, but we're incredibly excited to be in the new space.
If you have a chance to visit this area, feel free to stop in and say hi!
