    Former Employee - High Turnover  in  Shanghai, Shanghai (China)
    Former Employee - High Turnover in Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    Pros

    You can be promoted very quickly. We have seen secretaries promoted to entry level positions in marketing, supply chain, and sales in less than six months. But that is also a possible sign of finding a lack of qualified applicants from outside.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. The company has the lowest score for employee satisfaction feedback surveys annually. Managers and directors have no long term vision or experience when put into their positions. It is a mess and creates a bad environment for growth, so you end up looking for other opportunities.
