    PSM Role

    Product Sales Manager (Current Employee) Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    ProsDynamic, active. Different divisions/stores have differing cultures. Great supportive managers and bosses if they are on your side. At times great culture and some great colleagues to work with

    ConsAt times political, again depends on which stores. It can be pressurizing though not impossible to accomplish tasks given, can at times try to do too much at one time lacking focus. Again location have different issues which cannot be covered completed

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpeak and know the salesforce including the challenges encountered by PSMs, give us tools to drive the business and build a team especially if in a new location

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    DFS Group is one of the best companies I have ever worked for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood exposure
    Opportunity to work overseas
    Great learning experience
    Promote from within
    Great benefits
    Attractive bonus
    Once you are being sent overseas, you are well taken care of by their "Expat" package that does not have an expiration date as for as I know.

    ConsOffice politics (better to know which one to stay away from).
    Lack of team work (watch your back)
    Candidates/employees who are internationally mobile are highly preferred.
    Talented employees with great performance are most likely going to stay at the same job level if they can't work in other countries due to family or other personal obligations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the local employees as happy as you treat Expats.
