    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Charles & Keith full-time

    Pros

    If you are enjoying PU footwear you will find stores around the whole Asia regions, the company is involved in the interesting collaborations, offices are based in very safe Singapore City and also as an employee you are having product discounts

    Cons

    The company HR policy is rather obnoxious, paranoid and unfair. The teams aren't educated well enough, and the campaigns are lead only by the numbers. The long hours are prooving chaotic and inefficient management. The whole company is family-based, and it is reflected in the backward thinking.

    I worked at Charles & Keith full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If fresh grad or entry level, there are opportunities to learn. Some people are very nice and friendly. Staff discount on company products

    Cons

    Turnover rate is very high - leads to constant re-structuring A lot of managers lack basic leadership and skills. Toxic culture, people do not take responsibility and push work to different teams, some people who’ve been there for years get by doing nothing due to their ‘loyalty’. Family makes all the decisions. Very low pay. Some teams have no work life balance.
