Articles : Nikwestside commented on news An Anger Management Masterclass for Expats in China

I found myself laughing uncontrollably as I was reading your comment, Guest15884516. Aside from the gruff language, you're absolutely right. I have no idea where expats get the idea that Chinese people are somehow more mild-mannered than foreigners. And the concept of seeing yourself as less important? The author ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Nikwestside commented on news How COVID Travel Restrictions Can Help Expats in China Advance their Careers

While I agree with most of what is written in this article, there's also a potential risk that it forgot to explore. Everyone in China knows that the rest of the world is struggling. Your employer knows you'd rather stay in a pandemic-free country whose economy is not on its knees. They might use that as leverage to ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Nikwestside commented on news 6 Perks of Working at a Big Chinese Tech Company

Having worked for three tech companies in China myself, I can confirm that most of these are true to some degree. It depends on how big the company is, how well-funded they are, and (of course) how well they are doing financially. Full Comment>>

Articles : Nikwestside commented on news Foreigners in China Face Discrimination as Imported Corona Infections Grow

I think what you wrote makes a lot of sense. Administrative functions in China tend to keep close tabs on all foreigners, and it's highly unlikely that foreigners that are here legally would find themselves in situations like those described in the article, although there might be exceptions of course. With that ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Nikwestside commented on news 6 Ways to Feel More Stable as an Expat Living in China

For once we agree. China is not a place to settle down and create a stable life for yourself. Among a plethora of other reasons, it's also almost impossible to a permanent residence/ green card in the country. Only a handful of foreigners have what it takes to mentally adjust to a permanent life in China, and even ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Nikwestside commented on news No Money, No Honey: The Price of Love in China

There's no denying the fact that material wealth plays a significant role when choosing a partner in China. But I wonder if this is a transient behavior - assuming that the country keeps in developing. Men with money basically mean more security and stability in a society that severely lacks social welfare (China is ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Nikwestside commented on news 6 Traditional Hobbies That Will Benefit Your Life in China

Look, I'm the first guy to criticize China for all its faults and minor (and major) annoyances. But you're nothing short of demeaning 1.4 billion people as if they are all racist and xenophobic, bad drivers and deeply immoral and unhealthy. If that's how you view them, then you better leave this country because you ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Nikwestside commented on news 5 Types of Foreigner You’ll Meet in the Chinese Workplace

I think you make a pretty good point there actually. Non-westerners are probably just so darn happy to be in a place that is not their flawed home country. Smug Westerners, on the other hand, will look at China and find so many things lacking; sub-par insulation and ventilation, undrinkable tap water and too much ... Full Comment>>

Nice catch. If you're still on probation you will not get any severance pay, and your 30-day notice will be significantly shorter (three days, I believe). That means you certainly have a valid reason to be on edge during your probation, although a lot of companies will have shorter probation periods for foreigners - ... Full Comment>>
