      Pros

      Relax working environment and flexible working hour. Every employee are treated equally well in the company.

      Cons

      There is none in my opinion. Maybe too many client's request and meeting throughout a day and you can hardly focus on your own stuff. haha

      Pros

      Nice office equipment with a beautiful pantry, people are stylish but usually unfriendly at all for the most time (HK office)

      Cons

      I speak my experience as a former employee of O&M in Quarry Bay, Hong Kong. If you are looking for a job here, I assure you will be better-off elsewhere. This place expects you to OT without pay even for FP&A or supportive roles. The office environment is toxic with a mean CFO who only cares about her pay and not staff well-being. It is possible that you get fired for no reasonable excuse at all. The people are unfriendly and you must mix with someone or you will be bullied against. The internal system is ancient and messy thus you need to spend much time doing manual admin tasks. people have unrealistic expectation for you.
