    Pros

    Not that much, at least nothing can overcome the cons.

    Cons

    Basically all the critical reviews are true while the positives are mostly flawed.

    Do yourself a favour and look elsewhere

    13 Sep 2021 - Interior Designer in Sheung Wan
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nice view & a whiskey room (that is rarely used)

    Cons

    - Arrival time is logged on a time sheet - Outdated softwares (uses microsoft office more than adobe suite) - No trust, you don't get your own email, everything gets sent by admin - Very high carbon footprint, every single email is print and put in your "in-tray" - CEO blinded by admin, who creates a hellish environment for any creative to function - Want access to your personal instagram - No work/life balance. Going home on time meaning you don't have enough work - All in all, they're stuck in the 80s and not willing to evolve

    Worse experience ever

    Pros

    Really none, even the friday happy hour is just a way to judge you

    Cons

    Everything, not an office to look for. No manner from anyone especially from the receptionist (that always act like the owner of the company) and the boss. Title means nothing and you are subjected to do all, also something that you don't know and supposed to do. No PM, no BD, they ask you to introduce clients because they are too lazy to go out and look for them, just wait in the office and hoping for clients. All is done over and over again because of the lack of new work, one day the project is fine and the next no, and the next no again. No private life because they ask you to provide also you personal LinkedIn and Instagram account to monitor you. No privacy at all and management always check all.

    A Nightmare to work here, terribly old fashion management style

    Pros

    If i have to say - friday drinks and food, but it is not really able to compensate the cons of the company

    Cons

    Very high turnover rates - quite many resign; for those didnt resign (yet), they keep interviewing new candidates, terminates people (apart from core team member) once they found new candidate OK for lower salary colleagues no time/ not willing to teach; politics; old-fashioned management e.g. you not able to send/reply email from your own computer, needa print out draft email and put into tray of admin to send (sounds stupid) ; you needa write daily schedule of works for others to check like a school kids) very difficult to adapt to the culture (unless you love office culture back in 20th century)
