Other Employee Reviews for Global Sources

  1. "Good learning experience about global trade"

    Pros

    Multinational team, exposure to different work cultures, an opportunity to understand the issues surrounding global trade and manufacturing. With offices in many geographic locations, there are also plenty of opportunities to travel, particularly to its China Sourcing Fairs.

    Cons

    The matrix organisation structure requires different stakeholders to collaborate on projects and this sometimes slows down the decision-making process as the project team needs to seek buy-in from most of the stakeholders.

    Advice to Management

    With more nimble competitors like Alibaba in the market place, the company needs to reinvent itself quickly to stay relevant.


  2. "Great people, but really unstable"
