      Great company overall

      3 Oct 2022 - Advanced Software Engineer in Hong Kong

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Certain degree of freedom in choosing projects: Zuhlke has clients in different fields (mainly medical and financial institutions), it is completely OK to voice out your preference for projects. Friendly colleagues and good culture: People here are nice and supportive. Peer engineers are highly capable and easy to work with. There are regular social events to build up team bonding. No micromanagement: There is no micromanagement here and your line manager gives you the autonomy to work on your own. However it may not be the same case for the project leaders in client. Unique benefits: Being able to work remotely outside of HK (under permission of client) is not something you can find everywhere. Expanding network: You will be meeting different people in different clients and be able to expand your network.

      Cons

      On bench from time to time: Sometimes there is just no projects which fits you and you will be on bench between projects. You may have a feeling of not being needed (and it is absolutely not your fault). Salary not so competitive: The salary does not really match with permanent bank staff. Relatively difficult to get promoted: Client feedback contributes a large portion in determining your performance, but not all the clients are willing to give you a lengthy/thorough feedback to reflect it. Besides that, there are "extra-miles" you will have to cover (eg. hosting knowledge-sharing sessions) to secure a promotion. Being great at client project solely does not cut.

      Probably the best consultant firm you can find in Hong Kong

      25 May 2022 - Expert Software Engineer in Hong Kong
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Work life balance definitely. Although it's a consultant firm they strongly encourage work life balance and enforce it as much as they can. - Cutting edge tech and loads of best practices. You'll get to work with loads of awesome, smart, and amazing engineers and you will definitely learn a whole lot from them. - Trust and support from management. They trust you with the work and with the way you work. Unlike traditional hk companies, they trust you when you call in sick (no doctor's note), they trust that you'll deliver on time. No micromanagement. They give you a plenty of freedom. - They respect their engineers and they reward their engineers. Definitely a no blame culture and they try to understand the situation whenver something goes wrong. - Awesome, fun, and diverse culture. If you're tired of local HK culture, this is the place to be

      Cons

      - It is a consultant firm so it's difficult to avoid bad clients. Zuhlke management did they best to be selective and pick out the best projects for their engineers but every now and then they'd end up with a client who'd lie about the nature and the actual work of the project. (Chances are low, I just happened to be unlukcy) - Salary is average. It's a good salary if you're not already in the banking industry. They can definitely be more competitive in their pay. - Hong Kong reports to Singapore. I understand that they're trying to unify the standard across Asia but it's not quite fair to have those sitting in Singapore to evaulate you when you're sitting in Hong Kong and they know nothing about you.

      The best company I have worked for in 2 decades

      25 Apr 2022 - Principal Consultant 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      One of the best places for the passionate engineers to develop in multiple dimensions. With a lot of career opportunities as the company is rapidly growing. Unmatched support from team leads and sponsored training from the company. An engineering company run by engineers.

      Cons

      Don't expect a top-down management style. This is for people who want to take full ownership of their job. This is not for people who want to stay in their comfort zone as learning and growing only happen when we feel uncomfortable and being challenged.

      Pros

      Company culture is best I've seen. Great work-life balance, Overseas company events, met colleagues from overseas and I keep in touch with them even after I left.

      Cons

      About the same cons as you can expect in any consultancy. Expect downtimes in between projects to use for self improvement. Project variety can be hit or miss in Hong Kong.
