    Fast Paced, Young Company, Nobody Knows what they are doing

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

    ProsYou 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.

    ConsHigh 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
