    Fair pay with poor company culture

    Apr 19, 2022 - Project Manager in Hong Kong
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Staff are generally responsible and friendly. Career path & salary is stable if you joined as an Executive Trainee - indeed the pay is quite nice given not much intelligence is required for working in this Council. Good work-life balance most of the time.

    Cons

    Very government-like, bosses are annoying and make you question the meaning of your work: you spend 50% of the time on reports / creative accounting and entertaining management's random requests/ questions, rather than working on the project itself. Not much skills learned other than event management which is nothing professional. Manpower is apparently in shortage, doesn't seem to be fixable in the short term
