    Human Resource

    Human Resource (Current Employee) Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    Prosit has a very good work environment and all my co-workers are very nice. You can always easily discuss or chat with your co-workers. The relationship with managers is very close and you can always give your advices and suggestions to them.

    ConsI wish there could be more group meeting each week to discuss how is everyone doing on their job and maybe after work dinner. Other than that I think it is pretty good.
