    Staffing service company, not a consulting firm at all

    Consultant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsRelatively strong SAP related business presence in Japan. The HQ used to have Deloitte heritage (attract high quality people, or knowledge base, etc.) but not any more.

    ConsMost "consultants" in the US are not proper employees (temp staffs). No training, no corporate-wide "experiences" or knowledge to offer clients. Unable to provide quality consulting service to clients. Though the company claims to be a "global" company, most expats from Japan, where HQ locates, are not capable to perform business in English at all (How they suppose to manage projects???).

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey better "consult" their own company, identify problems, and implement remediation before selling "consulting" service to outsides.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
