    I worked at Fung Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a major structure and highly educated and experienced high management (from VP up)

    Cons

    The passive aggressive culture is terrible, no real feedback to employees. They expect you to work 24 hours and there is no investment in employee education. They do not invest in talent, nor rather care for your growth inside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Train high employees from overseas offices how to be better managers. Invest in your employees and recognize their hard work. When I left the company had more than 30 thousand employees worldwide, and I met plenty of people who would not put in a good for the company, or would recommend anyone to make business with/work there.

    Pros

    Coffee Machine helped me save money.

    Cons

    Treat employees like machines. They have no respect for you as a person, you are simply a commodity to make them money and are easily disposable. Everything single thing is urgent and needing to be finished yesterday which creates a stressful/tense work environment. One new designer didnt take lunch for two days because she was swamped and instead of pitching in, the design director tells her "thats ok". Thats actually illegal but they dont care. Incompetent managers who are only looking to cover their own selves and will throw you under the bus if needed. Long hours and overly strict on time (you have to be seated at 9am but often stayed in the office past your scheduled working hours due to often being given assignments that MUST be finished before you leave) although senior managers didnt follow their own rules. Only take the job if you have nothing else and always be on the lookout for another one. Also the benefits are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck retaining young talent.

    I worked at Fung Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Big company with name recognition
    - A handful of great co-workers
    - Decent PTO time (if you can get around to using it)

    Cons

    - Upper management really does not know what's going on despite very nice speeches
    - Depending on your division, you either get a great manager or a poor manager
    - Little to no recognition for work done
    - Business model is set up for business a decade ago. Despite changes made, look at the numbers. It speaks for the upper management.
    - No work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Many of the problems stem from employees who are grade "3" on up as they act if their word or direction is always correct; that they can do no wrong and it is the workers/team below them. Get honest and real feedback from people working below them for the real picture.

    Every year, have every grade "3" or higher do the day-to-day jobs for the group/teams they lead for a full month. Do not allow them to use the "I'm the boss" card to offload any work or get additional help that a regular employee would not have access to. Have them do the job for a month straight and hold them to the same standards they lay out for their group/teams. After that month is completed, retain/fire/discipline these grade "3" according to those same standards they set for their group/teams.
