    Good learning experience about global trade

    I worked at Global Sources

    Pros

    Multinational team, exposure to different work cultures, an opportunity to understand the issues surrounding global trade and manufacturing. With offices in many geographic locations, there are also plenty of opportunities to travel, particularly to its China Sourcing Fairs.

    Cons

    The matrix organisation structure requires different stakeholders to collaborate on projects and this sometimes slows down the decision-making process as the project team needs to seek buy-in from most of the stakeholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With more nimble competitors like Alibaba in the market place, the company needs to reinvent itself quickly to stay relevant.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Global Sources in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to their Makati office for a written exam. I screwed it up because I didn't have the syntax memorized for the program I needed to write based on their machine problems. After the exam I was told they will contact me for the next steps.

    Few days more and the HR personnel texted me asking for a phone interview. But for some reason, I politely declined and informed her I decided to stop the pursuit of career in their company.
