    Pros

    -Updated company on latest tech trends and practices.
    -Good colleagues with good experience in their respective field.
    -Possibility of learning new things.
    -Very experienced founders with great sense of business.
    -Sometimes HR looks for input for improvements
    -Decent benefits overall.
    -Pleasant CEO.
    -Free daily fruit.
    -Competent staff

    Cons

    -If the tech orientation culture doesn't suit you, you will be frustrated.
    -US business model with HK management practices makes the company feel like a factory.
    -Impersonal relationship with management: everyone is seen as a role, not a human.
    -Employees might not feel supported.
    -The company is great at jumping to new things to stay updated and survive in a demanding industry, but this implies that some staff becomes obsolete in a short time.
    -Practical mindset putting emphasis on engineering over artwork can leave designers/artist unfulfilled.
    -No time for conceptual work or experimentation.
    -Many deals and partners but many low quality or unfinished products.
    -Expected (however not explicitly demanded) that everyone should be reading the company's flooded Slack channel even during weekends and holidays.
    -Several unexplained layoffs during my stay. Many people quit too.
    -Very far location (but nice overall)

    Advice to Management

    Please remember that employees are not AI or numbers on a sheet. Leave technology to business, and relate humanly. Parties are nice but people need to relate everyday: make things more transparent and allow for teams to organize work systematically.
    Monitor those mid-management staff who tend to activate themselves towards the end of the day: it's not nice to be pulled to your desk when you're about to go home. Keep the workplace organized and efficient, less scatter-minded.

    IT Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Outblaze Limited (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Asked to sit down and waited for a short while, then the HR officer came in. After the opening talks, I was shocked to be told that the company actually had no intention to pay my expected salary, or anything near it. She told me that it was a junior position and was expecting to pay a junior salary. I didn't ask her why they bothered to ask me to come for an interview; I just politely smiled all the way and gave polite response, and sat through the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • As this position is a junior position, we are only intending to give you a salary which misses your expectation grossly. May I ask if you are still ok with that?   1 Answer
