    I have been working at Luxasia full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Passionate People (and good-hearted / good-natured ones aplenty). Great team work and team spirit. An ambitious journey to revolutionize beauty distribution and online-and-offline selling of beauty products. Transformation in-progress. Compelling Vision. Comprehensive Strategy. A lot being done to improve all aspects of the company. It takes serious courage to undertake a Transformation of this scale.

    Cons

    Not for the faint-hearted, not for the "easily bruised", not for the easily discouraged. Work can get demanding and tough. It is in the midst of Transformation - many things to be improved. Work-life balance is expected to take a hit - need to sink in hard work to achieve the Vision / Mission.

    Advice to Management

    The critical success factors are: Execution excellence Open honest calling out of mistakes - so that we can all learn and not repeat them Open communication - nothing should be so "taboo" that we cannot talk about them People - Need to value People. Not just in compensation / rewards but in everyday encouragement, positive words, and in giving special mention to People who delivered beyond their call of duty.

    I worked at Luxasia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get to enjoy very single staffs’ sales and benefits on those related products.

    Cons

    Office politics is a major issue in this company. Top management not showing respect to people and not professional at all. Environment is toxic and poor management issue especially the HOD. Work life balance is strongly discouraged by the boss/management. Expected you to work like a robot. Not a good place for people to learn and grow.

    Advice to Management

    They should’ve learn to respect people regardless of what title in the company. All the best!

    I worked at Luxasia for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - lots of get together activities - staff sales and staff discounts - people are generally nice - work life balance (of course it varies among different departments)

    Cons

    - bullying and manipulations by some higher management is tolerated and it goes on for years without consequences to the person - very little leave, and leave only increases by 1 day every 3 years (?!?) - medical benefits are just OK - flexible benefits arent very good

    I have been working at Luxasia full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    99% of people are nice, 1% are insane - get into the right department. Firm is expanding, getting a role is not difficult. Firm is willing to spend - on welfare & training, but you have to ask

    Cons

    14 Leave days - wayyyyy below any sort of industry average Pay is always lowballed - so NEGOTIATE UP That insane 1% is likely going to be your boss

    Advice to Management

    Directions switch rapidly, without explanation, leading to comployee confusion. Be discplined in chasing pre-set targets - refrain from chasing every colourful butterfly that flies by
