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.

    Pros

    Love my colleagues and team, very multi-cultural

    Cons

    Hate the politics, business is dying slowly, takes too long to make changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think everyone's too afraid to take charge and make decisions. Great ideas sometimes, but you have to take risks to reap benefits.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
