    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Global Fashion Group full-time

    Pros

    - Startup culture: innovation, adaptive to changes, open for new ideas, methodologies and technologies, young and tech-savvy teams - Corporate culture: the working process, the transparent structure, the incentives - Well located in the center of SG

    Cons

    - Projects may be going at a slow pace as they involve multi-party process, so if you are a hungry for creativity or craving for changes, it may not be the best for you

  2. "Big in size as a whole, nimble enough at the group level with great mindsets"

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Global Fashion Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    GFG, at the group level, is small and nimble. "Agile" is indeed a culture there, more than a practice. 1. Not much bureaucracy. Every team wants to get things done. 2. Advanced technologies and engineering practices lead its peers in APAC by 2-3 years. 3. Genuinely care about the people and provides enough training and learning opportunities. 4. Good and friendly environment.

    Cons

    1. Needs to get rid of Rocket Internet's marks and establish some long-term visions to let employees know what they are building. 2. The Group influence on ventures might not be adequate.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Global Fashion Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great learning and opportunity to make an impact and do meaningful work. The teams are good and full of young and motivated people, also from many parts of the world (though also a lot of French). Good opportunities available to interact with local teams and opportunities to travel around the world to help with real business problems.

    Cons

    Company does not take care of the people. Focuses too much on short term goals and meeting KPIs more than taking care of the people and the long term growth of the company. Compensation not great, flimsy with a lot of promises for improvement.
