    Pros

    Good benefits. Good compensation. Large conglomerate to expose yourself to a lot of industries. Great place to develop your career.

    Cons

    Conservative old fashion family business. Slow in technology adaptation. Some middle management are shallow and not respectful to the staff members. Group companies are too decentralized - weak in corporate culture.

    Executive Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Jardine Matheson.

    Interview Details

    Had an informational interview with someone in HR after an internal referral for their selective Executive Development Program. Was the most condescending interview I have ever had and I've interviewed with the most pretentious companies. Basically the interviewer hadn't looked at my resume and used the time to insinuate that because I was American I would fail to grasp business in Asia. (I'm fluent in Mandarin and interned for a consulting firm in Shanghai in addition to a 6 month study abroad program in Beijing, all of which is very prominent on my resume) Moreover they require you to take an onsite test and the testing sites are only in London, Singapore, and HK. The London test date was on the same day that my CFA Level 1 was so it wasn't an option. I realize I'm drawing my conclusion from a tiny sample size, but regardless if a senior member of HR is that bad at speaking to prospective hires I can't see myself working there. If you find yourself in the situation where an internal referral lands you a preliminary informational interview don't be surprised if the HR member hasn't looked at your resume and is extremely condescending.
