    I worked at Li & Fung as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are very nice but some teams are better to work with than others. The office is located in a great area!

    Cons

    The company needs to be more efficient with communication and technology. It's hard to understand the business as a whole because it is such a large company. Some employees are set in their ways and do not like change because they have been in the company for so long. This also affects the chances of a promotion so promotional opportunities are lacking unfortunately.

    Pros

    Excellent health benefit packages. Great investment in new software to maintain accuracy and data integrity in both a top-side down and a bottom-side up integration of all business categories and clients across all businesse.

    Cons

    Poor communication within business departments and across all specific customer accounts

    Advice to Management

    I realize you (LFUSA Managment) are spending a great deal of money to educate top executives from around the world in Asia, but you should do more for younger executives who will benefit from thoes courses so much more given their younger age, their desire to learn new things to help their business and propell their careers, and their youthful willingness to see and do things differently for improved results. Currently the executives you're targeting are too old and set in their own ways and modalities when it comes to exicuting what needs to be done for their businesses. In short you're wasting money on older employees that will not utilize enough of the strategies and practices they are being taught because they favor the way they have been doing things for the past decade or two.
