    Pros

    I've been with the company's US branch for a little more than 2 years; I started out as a sales associate in its retail. If you enjoy working with art and culture, and perhaps want to utilize or build your knowledge in Chinese, this is the place to be. There will be heavy lifting over 50lbs at times, so a good chance to build your physical strength as well. Although well-established in Asia, the US branch has the size of a start-up, so it's a good place to be if you want to learn every aspect of a business. You will be trained to think on your feet and react to last minute changes whether from the management, factory, customer, or things just happen. This experience was like a "coming-of-age" to me, where I learned many things about life, and why things happen in life. If you have a chance to meet with the founders/artists, they are great people and very endearing.

    Cons

    Do not come if you're not comfortable working in micromanagement, or a place where all communications are done mostly in Chinese. And if you're a devoted Christian or don't feel comfortable being close to Buddhist icons, and can't think of them as art, then DO NOT COME. You will be expected to support other departments or perform duties not on the job description. If you can't treat it as a learning experience, then I would highly recommend you either stay away from this commpany, or be very firm and clear that you don't want to perform those duties. But just be prepared that the management will inadvertently label you as being uncooperative.

    Advice to Management

    Spreading everyone too thin, including the top manager, really isn't going to save the company money. Adhering to a budget means spending your money wisely, not squandering it on imposters. Sometimes decisions can't be made simply based on how much money the company will gain or lose. If you're in a luxury industry then there are definitely more things to look at. Finally, if you're going to make someone a manager, then delegate powers to that person. The point of having mid-level managers is to have them share managerial workload, not just an empty title for associates to put on their business cards. By the way, please mention to your recruits that there will be religion involved, even if the company is not affiliated or endorsing any religion. I believe this company definitely has its potential in the US, but definitely not when it's still operating the way now.

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to do everything, unprofessionally. Lower level employees are nice to each other

    Cons

    Minute by minute micromanagement, no career advancement opportunities, despite what they tell you. New ideas and opinions are not welcome unless they coincide with the existing ideas. Constantly required to move over 70lb packages (that's how big their shipment packages are). And you spend half your time packing stuff.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think it's gonna change anything since they don't take advices

    Closely knited; given many opportunities to learn and try all positions

    Work not balanced between staff, resulting in some overwork and some has nothing to do... Too much power in seniority....

    Advice to Management

    Relations between staff must be well-managed
