Pros

Excellent design team - line design is right on. Now owned by Li & Fung, the benefit package is unbeatable (company paid healthcare).

Cons

No communication on performance or expectations. A company where it is "trial by fire" without any training on systems etc. The company was bought by Li & Fung Nov 2009 and because of that is compressing & the environment has become extremely cut throat where people are fighting for their job. In previous days the work environment was about team work. Now it is every man for himself in a very ugly way.

Advice to Management

Managers who know how to manage inventory but not people. People are expendable. They are not a commodity. People with families are the most expendable. Ownership grades employees by the number of face time hours rather than a thorough job completed during working hours.

    Pros

    Li & Fung is a large and well established corporation that offers great learning opportunities and a wonderful benefits pacakge.

    Cons

    Salaries are very low and employees can be over-worked. The culture is not consistant between the divisions because of all the acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more comprehensive training and better acquaint employees with the actual environment in the division they will be placed as there are big differences between all of the different companies within the groups.

    Pros

    They offer very good health benefits.

    Cons

    They are constantly buying up companies to expand the company. If you are part of a company that is bought nothing changes initially and then once Li & Fung comes in many red tape processes are put in place.

    Advice to Management

    I have no doubt that the mgmt team at Li & Fung is extremely competent. However, when decisions regarding mergers are made it feels as though there is no strategy in place until the merger is already in process. As an employee is very frustrating and concerning.
