  2. "(extremely)sales oriented, draining place with little to no work/life balance"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Qoo10 full-time

      Pros

      - mostly nice colleagues - nice office view - free wifi & aircon - convenient location - free flow water (while stock lasts)

      Cons

      - little to no work/life balance - fast paced, sales oriented - (frustrating) one-way top-down management - not the most transparent credit point system that determines your increment

      I worked at Qoo10 full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      - Nice colleagues! - E commerce big player - Beneficial if you are joining as an Account Manager, get to build your network with merchants and brands.

      Cons

      Unless you are a Korean, i suggest you not to waste time here. - Messy business structure (from Qtalk, Qsquare, Qprime, Live10, Quube, and honestly nobody cares about these) - Does not recognize employees efforts. (So don't act smart there.) - If you have patience to wait till the company IPO - Not an ideal place for Marketers. There is literally nothing to learn from, except registering promotion campaigns...

      Advice to Management

      Go ahead and continue to be complacent, it will lead you to sell your entity just like Qoo10 Japan. Stop thinking Qoo10 will always be the lead in E-commerce. This is 2019, not 2010. Mr Ku Young Bae, please act like a CEO. The Koreans aren't your only employees that help you run the ship. You have over 200 employees in SG Office, but you forsake 80% of them. Treat your employees well for them to take care of...

      Pros

      You can learn here, but only from the right mentors.

      Cons

      The bosses do not care whether you mean anything. They can get anyone to replace you anytime. Micro management is a real serious problem. Clearly no progression

      Advice to Management

      They won't take your advice anyway.

      I worked at Qoo10 part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - The team are amazing! - Convient location - Very Flexible - Easy to join (You dont even need to go for interview if you are shortlisted) -Can quit with notice of 1 day. - Paid Public holidays - Good for new learning experience and understanding how E-commence works. Looks nice on CV if you dont have any experience.

      Cons

      - Long working hours due to last minute deals and not enough designers. Some Account Managers are overly hardworking and worked till wee hours in the night (Eg 5am) - very low pay of $7/hr.

        Pros

        Nothing for sure. But i think if you jump into other companies,(especially e-commerce) this would be good.

        Cons

        Everything for sure. Everything is Korean business style. overtime, bonus etc..

        Advice to Management

        There are so many cons that I can't think of any pros.

        Cons

        Very bad management and system Toxic Environment Too frequent in changing roles leads a lack of motivation to employees

        Advice to Management

        This company have a lot of things that they need to improve especially in terms of management and system. Other than that, there is no quality input in knowing the nature of the business as people work like a robot/go to work for the sake of attendance but actually did nothing much.

        Pros

        I am extremely grateful to those that gave me the opportunities and groom me. Here's my honest review: 1. With Great opportunities comes Greater responsibilities comes Greater power. If you work really hard and be patient, management does look at your performance. For those Designers that left negative reviews, please think again. One have to understand Qoo10 isn't a design agency. Being a designer is obviously...

        1. "Struggle to work with other department of various goals" I wish the goals of every department can blend well with one another. In my opinion, I understood everyone have to work towards their target. But sometimes, this action results in a very negative side effect. A car with petrol cant move without a driver.

        Advice to Management

        "Just 5 cents" 1. Reward those who put in hard work regularly not because of how long they work (OT), but the challenges involve to create something out of nothing. That's the real magic trick. 2. Come out with proper education system set aside to guide the new comers. A lot things has been done before but forgotten. If only I have a mentor, my life will be easier hahahahah. 3. Simplify the QSM and the entire...
