    Helping Lazada ratings

    Pros

    Management is aware of the abysmal Glasdoor ratings: the new CEO himself asked the whole company in a town hall to come leave positive reviews. We may overtake FoxConn anytime soon.

    Cons

    Management solution for bad Glasdoor reviews is to blame disgruntled employees for them and ask the happy campers to come here and praise the new administration. Take all positive comments from Aug 27 onwards with a pinch of salt.

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to be under the right department or mentor/boss, you will learn and hopefully achieve many things in a short time.

    Cons

    The culture here is such that you feel expendable. There is not much patience for people who come in knowing nothing and wanting to learn. They prefer ready made talent but such is the nature of an e-commerce company. Prepare yourself to face changes that are poorly (or not even) communicated. Transparency is an issue here.

    Fast paced environment, culture in between start up and MNC

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Depending on team (and direct management), the culture ranges from political to transformational. I am fortunate to be on the latter side of the spectrum. One thing for sure is that the work life here is very fast paced and constantly changing. The e-commerce industry in Singapore is still fairly young (but competitive), so if you are up for the rigor, this is a good place for you.

    Cons

    See pros! It depends on how you see it The benefits are honestly not fantastic, given that it has been a good year for e-commerce (at the peak of COVID-19)

    Command-and-control management style

    Pros

    Good learning experience in e-commerce.

    Cons

    Lazada is not meant for you if you want to make a positive impact on customer experience. You can also forget about building your career here unless you are Chinese, speak Mandarin, or enjoy being at the beck and call of everyone 24-7. An unhealthy culture that glorifies long working hours, unproductive meetings, and doing whatever your boss tells you. Collaboration is not encouraged - competition is; breeding a toxic environment. People get promoted for their blinkered focus on KPIs that have no meaningful contribution to the business or the customer. Many managers lack compassion/empathy and aren’t capable of thinking laterally - the keys to success and career progression here. Your manager will only give you the time of day if they can claim credit for your work or if their neck is on the line - every man for himself! HR only exists to discipline supposed transgressors and silence people who ask questions or give suggestions for improvement. If you decide to accept a role here, grit your teeth, put your head down, and stick it out for at least a year. Try not to stay too long because your career will stagnate, you will feel drained, and you’ll likely lose your critical thinking skills.

    Terrible People Management

    Apr 21, 2021 - Vice President in Singapore
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good location, decent brand name for those not in the know

    Cons

    Inexperienced and political managers who lack competence but are promoted quickly by managing the China management and doing illegal stuff. They have limited options beyond Lazada as they do not have track records in other companies and have not acquired actual knowledge to be able to get a decent job elsewhere. They survive by stealing the work and credit from capable people they hire to do their work, and suppress their subordinates doing the actual work by withholding key information from these more capable people and claiming that it is the China management that do not share the information.
