    Pros

    1. Flexibility. At GIA Shanghai office, employees enjoy a large degree of freedom in terms of time management. On top of that, people are friendly in general.
    2. Diversity. GIA recruits lots of people with different backgrounds. So it is a good chance for people whose major is not business to start his career in business field.

    Cons

    1. Lack of guidance. Most people at GIA Shanghai office are young and lack of experience to provide junior levels guidance.
    2. Office Politics. The promotion highly depends on the likeness from one or two people. The career path is not clear.
    3. Business is simple. As a market research company, the business is so simple. The nature of market research seals the future of the company. Can not be great.
    4. Management. The company only likes the submissive employees not the intelligent ones.
