    Pros

    The company has some brand-name clients with high-value projects. Accordingly, there are opportunities for interesting experiences and industry networking if assigned to the right projects.

    Cons

    The culture embodies the worst traits of their banking clients. Pay is far below industry peers and there is no room for advancement. Management has accepted that young employees will leave, and therefore treat them with little respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has poor financial controls and accepts work that doesn't fit the economics of IT infrastructure consulting. Overhead needs to be substantially cut. Stop paying premiums to acquire companies that offer fringe ("complimentary") services, and use the cash to retain employees and develop core businesses.

    Pros

    Interesting high-tech projects. Some very smart people. Flex hours, work from home.

    Cons

    US Management not active in daily operations. Account managers run projects like gods with no collaboration, all talk and no listen. Technical experts and subject matter experts do not get to talk to management, do not get to dialog with clients. Think "Putney Swope" where the best contributors see their work taken by ego centric coworkers and the contributor is marginalized, or not listened to about key topics that could help the clients and help the firm. Fact-finding and needs analysis is a joke. No one listens to client-side users and technical people, only to the deal-makers and only until the deal is closed, then project management is reduced to power-point presentations with no dialog.

    Pros

    Impressive clients, great projects, a lot of opportunity for professional growth, centralized office locations, global reach, and great people who are respected in their fields. Flexible working environment with office hot desking, working from home, and on-site. International travel depending on your role.

    Cons

    Growing pains as they take on new business lines. Management isn't always as quick to correct mistakes as they need to be. Lack of oversight leads to inconsistency in delivery across regions, clients, and even projects. Pay is poor and results in a revolving door of younger employees and a dearth of talent when senior employees leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much focus on expansion & delivery has left internal process changes neglected. Consistency & scalability are issues which need to be addressed in order to be truly global. Need to address morale issues around compensation to retain talent.

    Pros

    Abundant opportunities to be placed on projects with real responsibilities, but need know what you want and hustle for it.

    Cons

    Despite a competency based consultant grading, much of the learning and development takes place on the job without a formal or objective plan to ensure all individuals are placed on projects to learn the basic skills of project management, MS office etc. For recent graduates or young professionals, this lack of structure can hinder development if the individual is not proactive in pursuing their own progression.

    Pros

    Great experience working with some top clients! Graduates attain lots of training but they don’t seem to invest in you if you have been there for several years.

    Cons

    Progression structure is non-existent. They will avoid serious discussions with their employees in most instances. Retention rate of new and younger employees seems to be extremely poor. No company benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stop reaping the rewards for their benefit and allow people under them to progress and gain some of the reward they helped to create. Communication within teams needs serious improvement!

    Pros

    If you're prepared to work hard and understand the business you can do well (very well in fact).
    It is a small, dynamic company so there's definitely opportunity to make your mark and contribute to the development of your own role. You'll almost certainly not be bored, there is always so much going on and you get to turn your hand to many different kinds of projects.

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to be flexible. Although a Western company, in Asia the Asian working culture is still adopted and long days and/or weekend work come with the territory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal communication could be better and would help mitigate internal rumours which often turn out to be untrue.
    Make room for personal development of individuals -- especially soft skills -- not just directly business related development (and make room DURING working hours - encouraging people to do things on their own time does not count!).
