    Pros

    Good development condition for career path and profession. Friendly environment. Acceptable package + benefits.

    Cons

    I feel the leadership is somewhat more conservative than future oriented.

    Advice to Management

    Please put more emphasis toward rapid social economical and technological transition because the company is running in quite traditional ways.

    Westernized management style, flexible and with aim to serve business depts well. Regional office is expanding

    Pros

    Flexible employer who is fair but demands their pound of flesh. Good staff relations and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    It can be very political at senior levels and is a lot more ruthless at these levels. Heavily regulated which can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    remove some of the politics. Encourage people to do the best for the company not what is just right for them.

    Pros

    If you are working in Asia, the crown jewel of the company, then you will find many opportunities for growth, and a chance to work in some of the most vibrant markets in the world.
    Some very bright people at the top
    Importance of UK and the attendant influence are diminishing

    Cons

    Very strong orientation to Agency; over-weighted to this distribution platform.
    Extensive, prolonged, and test-centric evaluation during hiring process.
    Long hours are the norm
