Micromanagement sucks

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
All kaki kipas. If you close with management, then you will get promoted faster and high increment. Project and KPI based, no social life balance at all. Highly not recommended

Oldschool top management. Micromanagement with no trust on employees

The only thing you do here is to show you're doing something. No matter it's useful or not. Staffs are puppets of top management, only doing dolled up projects to impress CEO for better bonus incentive.


Starting salary a little high, family care leaves, marriage and newborn gift etc. fitness benefits


Everything else

Harmonious environment

Supervisor and department members are willing to offer help when step in. Typical china company management style but regrading pay is generous. Employees turnover rate is higher.

Very stressful environment. Cost saving is the most important. Too many staff with lack of equipment. Have to scramble for equipment. A yeat experience in top glove will make you super senior since people will keep resign.

Multinational company with traditional Management Culture

Everything must be fast. Normally the project duration is about 3 months. Therefore, there are alot of restriction while convert the new development project into actual production. Conducted Merit and Demerit Point system Training Letter and Reminder Letter is a norm in the company. Every 3 months are required to measure your BMI. If overweight or underweight, they will deduct your bonus based on percentage.


Cannot think of any


Training letter, every month need to try your best to prevent company deduct your salary.

Good place to start your career for fresh graduates

Good place to start your career as you're given the chance to learn and a lots of hands on tasks. However, this is a very traditional China man company. There's a lots of rules and always need to please management. There's no work life balance over here and bosses over here are very prefer you to work for very long times and most of the time OT without OT claims. For the chance to attend grand dinner, external training and exhibitions at overseas, only those with positions are allowed to attend.


travel allowance, hostel accomodation


long working hours, blindly follow instruction, less automation

A good place for fresh graduate to start your career

It's good for fresh graduate to join this company as the starting salary is not bad. However, don't think about work life balance over here as management judge your work performance based on how long you stay in company and you must be 24 hours on call especially for production. Top Glove is like a kingdom, all decisions will be depended on chairman even though there's memo or guideline to follow. All we do over here is to please the our beloved chairman even though we know that the things are not going to work. Other than that, there's too many rules to follow and some of them are really a waste of time (the procedures can cut short) which seriously reduce work efficiency. Anyway, glove industry is growing, so it's not harm to join this company.
