Any regret on moving back to HK?

I've been living overseas for most of my life and just moved back here recently. The HK working culture is something I'm still trying to get used to, especially the 少做少錯、唔做唔錯 one. Anyone out there has similar experience?

I felt the same way when I was an intern in HK during summer...People are so grumpy all the time...:smile_13:

No. I am glad i never consider going back to HK. From what I have read, it is the right decision, particularly for my kids.

I'm in IT.  Hope it'll work out better for you.

Is that a government job?

Money7 2017-8-14 11:28 PM

Haha, I wish.   Just a small branch office of a foreign company.  I wouldn't mind working for the government though, they get decent raise each year.

Yeah, it's an old Chevelle SS. Saw a few of those new Mustangs 5.0 on the street here, I think it's catching on.

To be fair, can't blame them.
Most of them have extremely long working hours, surely they are less inclined to take on more duties.

That said, if you can offer them some incentives, bonus or partnership, you will get a better response.

I just recently moved back to HK after spending two decades overseas. I had an expectation about the hours and the people here so I am ok. No regrets from me...so far

seaweedasia65 2017-9-9 08:35 PM

I'm also in IT and considering moving back to HK soon. Is the market here getting worse? Or just the culture is bad in general?

Market is getting slow, more jobs are shifted to mainland where I feel people are more aggressive.

windyfairy 2017-11-7 07:38 PM

I feel quite regretful for moving back here...Unprofessional work environment, passive corporate culture, extremely small living space and super crowded streets...really wanna leave immediately...

Yes

depends on what you position yourself.. if you are workaholic, hk is one of the best place to work in..
but the ideal situation is... you can enjoy where you live or work, or you are able to make the choice if where to go..

I don’t regret it and it is the best decision I have ever made.

I worked as a warehouse worker/sales in oversea. My first job in China/HK was already in management position. After few jobs changes, I finally joined a US company hired me as a GM and helped them solve their problem/monitor the operation in China/HK. 

My suggestion is to find a job in HK that related to your experience/culture to your home country.
