Recently, a mainland woman came to work in Hong Kong through the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme, and in just two months, she vented her bitterness on social platforms.

She said frankly: "Although my salary has increased several times since I came to Hong Kong, I am really tired of working in Hong Kong. Indeed, the mainland woman's salary has tripled from a monthly income of 15,000 yuan in the mainland to more than 40,000 yuan a month.

Let's not talk about anything else, just this salary, the editor is envious.

But in fact, behind the high salary, there is endless distress, she bluntly said: "Coming to work in Hong Kong is not as simple and beautiful as it is said on the Internet", and she angrily threw 8 pros and cons to prove that the words are true.

Wages are high, and consumption is really high

With a salary of 40,000 Hong Kong dollars a month, I thought I could live a very chic life, but don't forget that Hong Kong is the city with the highest cost of living in the world, surpassing Singapore!

Hong Kong's food, drinking water, fruits and vegetables are all imported, and eating is expensive. Take noon takeout as an example, lunch costs at least 70 or 80 Hong Kong dollars, plus 25 Hong Kong dollars in shipping, which is really much more expensive than the mainland in a month.

Living is even more expensive, in Hong Kong, where every inch of land is expensive, the cost of renting a house is simply outrageous! 5,000 Hong Kong dollars can only rent a super small room in Hong Kong, and it is really not easy to have a place to stay.

Is it indifference or a sense of boundaries?

In fact, people who come to work in Hong Kong from the mainland will have the same experience: Hong Kong colleagues are very "alienated" from each other.

During working hours, I will only bury my head in work, and I will basically not contact him after work. This does take time for some people in the workplace to get used to, but I think it's a good thing.

Working in Hong Kong is not easy

The mainland woman said: Working in Hong Kong is not easy, and the working mode is different from that in the mainland.

Compared with the mainland workplace, which is characterized by "involution" (infighting between colleagues), the Hong Kong workplace is more inclined to pursue efficiency and personal ability, and the main focus is to do practical things!

Work efficiently

I also mentioned that the Hong Kong workplace is more about efficiency, and this is indeed the case. Every day when I arrive at the company, I work hard, basically from the beginning of the morning to the end of work.

The lunch break is only one hour, and basically you have to hurry up after eating.

Language Restrictions

In the workplace in Hong Kong, switching between three languages is an essential skill. In the workplace, Hong Kong people love to speak English, but in life, Hong Kong people can speak Cantonese, or a mixture of Chinese and English, and few people use Mandarin as their common language.

Therefore, if you don't speak Cantonese, you don't have to wait for a formal workplace, which is already embarrassing at the interview stage.

There are more job opportunities than in the Mainland

After talking about the bad ones, let's start talking about the benefits of working in Hong Kong.

Compared with the mainland, Hong Kong is still relatively easy to find a job, because Hong Kong has lost some elites and urgently needs a large amount of blood. And she submitted hundreds of resumes, most of which had replies, which was much better than looking for a needle in a haystack in the mainland.

No overtime

Working in the mainland is a regular overtime, 996 is nothing, and many people still work overtime until the early hours of the morning. This is not the case here in Hong Kong, as long as you finish your work, you will leave work when it is time to get off work.

The point is that getting off work in Hong Kong is completely off work, and the boss and colleagues basically won't bother.

It is very suitable for career-minded girls

Another advantage is that there are no restrictions on women in the workplace in Hong Kong, and gender, age or marital status are not issues.

It is indeed not easy to integrate into the working life of Hong Kong, and the high-paying jobs in Hong Kong that everyone envy in the eyes of the people have different feelings, but it also shows that Hong Kong is a very tolerant city!

Troubles are different!

In recent years, more and more people have come to work in Hong Kong through the QMAS/TTAS and have encountered a variety of problems.

Recently, after 10 months of application, a Mainland woman successfully applied to work in Hong Kong through the Quality Migrant Scheme. Originally, he was full of enthusiasm, but now he is unable to integrate into Hong Kong.

First of all, because of language communication, although I can speak fluent Cantonese, I feel pressured to communicate in English, and I am often frustrated because I can't express my thoughts in English.

Even though she has a lot of experience working in the Mainland, she has always lacked Hong Kong work experience, connections and workplace culture, which has caused her to miss out on many job opportunities.

There are also many mainlanders who bring their families to Hong Kong. When you get a job in Hong Kong, you have to consider not only the work, but also the housing, education, and living problems of the family.

In Hong Kong, a monthly rent of tens of thousands of dollars for a set of 2 bedrooms and a living room is basic, and it is also basic to eat a fast meal. Hong Kong's high consumption has forced Hong Kong families to always consider the financial pressures, and these economic pressures are the straw that crushes them, causing them to be repeatedly frustrated, unable to find the meaning of working in Hong Kong, and finally choosing to drag their families back to live in the mainland.
