    I worked at Li & Fung Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to interface and learn from different departments, from Product Development to various Design categories. Nice people and management.

    Cons

    Very corporate in its structure, policies and work ethic. Expect long hours, not very generous with salaries or raises, however great work experience. Lots of "lifers" so not alot of room for upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust young talent!

    Too many generals, few soldiers

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Li & Fung Group

    Pros

    Great coworkers, posh offices, great location and reasonable work hours. Introducing great training programs for employees. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Flat structure. So no opportunity for growth. Poor communication between cross functional teams/ little to no communication between brands.
     If your title is production or sourcing, start looking for / redefining your job as soon it will be outsourced. Top heavy. No raise and nominal or no bonus for past 4 years due to "company performance"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the "foot soldiers"/ middle managers required to execute a decision prior to making sweeping changes in processes. When executive decisions have to be rolled back, it does not reflect good on management and dampens morale.
