    I have been working at Li & Fung full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great with complete medical coverage and generous PTO days compared to others in the same industry.

    Cons

    They do not care about the average employee. no one is hard unless you are part out of the senior executive team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to listen to what the your staff is telling you and take action on making the work enjoyment better. Stop wasting money on relocating jobs to other countries which already failed more than once wasting countless millions.

    Pros

    Benefits, amazing co-workers, location, Summer Fridays

    Cons

    Hard to move up the ladder, Information sharing, HR, No training, management picks favorites, not enough mentoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees via all of the surveys and employee review forms. Give IT more training so they can be better at their jobs and stop outsourcing, outsourcing will never understand the environment as well as an in house employee.

    I have been working at Li & Fung full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, co-workers, location, summer Fridays, 15 days off to start (accrued)

    Cons

    Salary for anyone below VP level, Poor management (it's not a secret), HR doesn't act as an intermediary and will tell your direct manager what you said, work hours for most people, no professional development, they outsource many positions and it makes it difficult to complete simple tasks because the outsourced people are not always onsite or available (or smart =)).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. Reward hard working employees with internal promotions and pay to match. Too many people are hired because of nepotism and are not qualified to do the job.

    Current Employee - Analyst in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at Li & Fung

    Pros

    1. perks from the sample sales
    2. great health and dental benefits

    Cons

    The communication between upper management and HR is extremely bad
    The hours are very long some times, they expect you to stay until the job is done, no matter what.
    There is no work life balance
    shifting of positions that some employees may not want, putting employees in a position to "take it or leave it attitude"
    Some of the managers there need a reality check!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Need to improve on commuication to employees regarding any changes and not waiting until there are rumors regarding lay offs
    2. Needs better training programs for management and other employees
    3. Opportunities for advancement and not just shifting jobs from other citiies
    4. Better and competitive salaries

    Former Employee - The WORST Company to Work For!!!! in New York, NY

    I worked at Li & Fung

    Pros

    The only thing that impressed me about this company was the Human Resources Department. I started having problems with my manager on my second day working there. HR was very helpful and quick to respond to my issues. The health insurance is good.

    Cons

    This company treats their employees like slaves. Don't even bother applying for a job here, because you will really regret it if they hire you. They don't tell you that you're expected to work AT LEAST 12-14 hours per day until after you're hired. Even though they don't give you 12 hours of work to do, you're expected to sit there and twiddle your thumbs. Management is very naive and doesn't know how train new employees properly. I have never been treated so poorly before in my life, and my experience working here traumatized me...and I quit after 2 weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The working environment is very hostile and communication needs major improvements.
