    Colleagues are great. Lack of communication and Political Hurdles are tiresome.

    Finance (Current Employee) Florham Park, NJ

    ProsColleagues are great and good to work with. Software/Technology is not current but at least they're fairly current. They stress process improvements. Personal growth is present for specific individuals but not for all. PTO is ok.

    ConsTraining is usually not available if it's system related, and will rely on manuals. Benefits are average. Personal growth for specific individuals. Lacking in communication and large political hurdles will be encountered. . i.e. buddy system used for hiring and they're not always the best employees. Company wide has guidelines and processes, but employees tend to ignore and not enforced by upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication is needed and less political views. Need to work as a well functioning group and not in silos. New Hires need to be local in the USA, instead of importing them in from home office in Switzerland and then they leave in few years to go back home.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Average, not recommended.

    Marketing Communications Manager (Current Employee) Beijing, Beijing (China)

    ProsCompany branding is good. The working environment is neat. Big yard in Downtown. All kinds of onsite services, including banking, laundry, etc. Canteen is also there, but doesn't taste good.
    Training is not much. Culture is very stubborn. Painful financial process. Full of bossy people and office politics.

    ConsSalary is low in Beijing. But good to start your career here. Work is not hard, but stressful. you don't have to work overtime. Not as good as it looks like.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more opportunities to talented people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
