      Bad Leadership and Toxic Office Politics

      Oct 22, 2020 - Consultant in Shanghai, Shanghai, Shanghai

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Global platform, got chance to work on projects with multi-regions, Work-life balance for most time

      Cons

      The CN Corporate Finance team is actually doing sourcing business. I worked there for one year and was kept working on sourcing projects (since senior management has only procurement background but it happens in corporate finance team). The team is still hiring finance person and make them work on the sourcing business. Top management lack of integrity to staffs and almost no leadership can be seen. The office is deeply political with toxic culture. And junior to mid staffs are paid significantly less than other FTI peer teams. Turnover is very high.
