    Former Employee - Product Development in New York, NY

    I worked at Li & Fung full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Have lavish office in Empire State building
    - Great medical benefits
    - Good for a fresher as company gives good exposure to manufacturing hubs.

    Cons

    - HR in this company is a dummy. They directly communicate your concerns to your direct reporting manager making it worse.
    - Lots of politics . No growth. Too many managers & directors who are high paud and do no work. Too less middle level people to execute the work.
    - Long working hours; often till 8:00pm-10:00 pm at night

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Company needs more workers and middle level staff than vice-presidents; as there is virtually no one to execute the daily work. Top level and directors only involved in meetings and politics.
    - Teams needs to made cohesive after every acquisition.

    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.
