    I have been working at Global Sources full-time (More than a year)


    Big company, systematic workflow and clear structure. no OT culture


    Looooong reporting line and not efficient at all. Invisible red tapes and multiple management lines which you have to satisfy all. Lack of appreciation of junior to middle level staff's efforts, never listen to the front line staff's voice. Below the market salary, no benefits at all (no medical insurance), and bad work location. Not suitable for a career hiker.

    Advice to Management

    treasure your employees. they are your company's true assets. open to suggestions and stop being so bureaucratic.

    Senior Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Makati City (Philippines)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Global Sources (Makati City (Philippines)) in May 2013.


    I was invited to their Makati office for a written exam. I screwed it up because I didn't have the syntax memorized for the program I needed to write based on their machine problems. After the exam I was told they will contact me for the next steps. Few days more and the HR personnel texted me asking for a phone interview. But for some reason, I politely declined and informed her I decided to stop the pursuit of career in their company.
