It had its moments

Associate (Current Employee)
Tokyo (Japan)

ProsYou can climb up to Partner even if you start at Associate level
Good interaction among assocites/senior associates
It still has some brand name value

ConsConservative, inward thinking management
Heavy reliance on business from multinationals referred from other offices
No sense of real urgency in this downturn (laying off mostly Associate/Senior Associate levels when the real cost are the numerous Client Partners/Senior Client Partners

Advice to Senior ManagementEven though they have been in this country for several decades, theyhave not gained much ground among local companies, always depending on "support" from other offices for work. They really need to start thinking about how to be competitive in this market and gain an edge over the contingency firms.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
