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

    Pros

    Decent work life balance. Variety of aesthetics and projects to work on. You can learn a lot on how NOT to manage employees here.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. So much micromanaging, VPs are stuck in old ways, no trust, complete lack of structure, underpaid, false promises on raises and promotions, the list goes on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent on projects and don't withhold information. Trust your younger staff to understand and research trends that appeal to customers. If you have to ask what Instagram or Pinterest is, there is really no hope.

    The communication between upper management and HR is extremely bad

    Some of the managers there need a reality check!!!!!

    1. Need to improve on commuication to employees regarding any changes and not waiting until there are rumors regarding lay offs
