    I worked at Hutchison Whampoa

    Pros

    Paid well. Gave engineering a lot of latitude Hired aggressively. Paid for some fun travel

    Cons

    Didn't have clear direction. Didn't communicate well with satellite San Francisco office. Finance team seemed mysterious at times.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear goals for the engineering managers and the company as a whole. Priorities seemed to shift and projects evaporated at different points. Continue to hire aggressively.

    I worked at Hutchison Whampoa full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a lot of genuinely nice people working there (especially HR & Finance), great pension scheme, nice location, very stable business model offering job security, no expectation of overtime, 2-3 funded social events through the year which are always fun

    Cons

    Lack of communication from head office, rigid and outdated processes can be frustrating and unable to change, small number of unpleasant senior managers, no flexible working practices

    Advice to Management

    Allow more flexible working and be more transparent in communication. Institute management training for senior leadership team.
