    Pros

    Many good people to work with from many different companies from acquisitions. Sadly, they let a lot of the dedicated and loyal people go once the new acquisitions have been integrated within the company.

    Cons

    Too many senior management roles that are not qualified for their positions which makes completing project goals or deadlines challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time on individual interviews to learn about what employees strengths or weaknesses are. Help them grow and gain experience. Especially senior management from acquisitions.

    Pros

    Many resources for sourcing consumer products.

    Cons

    Too many hands in the cookie jar, not nearly enough focus on the day-to-day business.

    Advice to Management

    Know your customers, know your employees, and refrain from knee-jerk actions. Patience is a virtue that pays off.

    Pros

    1. perks from the sample sales 2. great health and dental benefits

    Cons

    The communication between upper management and HR is extremely bad The hours are very long some times, they expect you to stay until the job is done, no matter what. There is no work life balance shifting of positions that some employees may not want, putting employees in a position to "take it or leave it attitude" Some of the managers there need a reality check!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    1. Need to improve on commuication to employees regarding any changes and not waiting until there are rumors regarding lay offs 2. Needs better training programs for management and other employees 3. Opportunities for advancement and not just shifting jobs from other citiies 4. Better and competitive salaries

    Pros

    Excellent design team - line design is right on. Now owned by Li & Fung, the benefit package is unbeatable (company paid healthcare).

    Cons

    No communication on performance or expectations. A company where it is "trial by fire" without any training on systems etc. The company was bought by Li & Fung Nov 2009 and because of that is compressing & the environment has become extremely cut throat where people are fighting for their job. In previous days the work environment was about team work. Now it is every man for himself in a very ugly way.

    Advice to Management

    Managers who know how to manage inventory but not people. People are expendable. They are not a commodity. People with families are the most expendable. Ownership grades employees by the number of face time hours rather than a thorough job completed during working hours.

    Pros

    Li & Fung is a large and well established corporation that offers great learning opportunities and a wonderful benefits pacakge.

    Cons

    Salaries are very low and employees can be over-worked. The culture is not consistant between the divisions because of all the acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more comprehensive training and better acquaint employees with the actual environment in the division they will be placed as there are big differences between all of the different companies within the groups.
