    Not bad choice, but there definitely exist gaps with banking or strategic consulting.

    Manager (Former Employee) Seoul (South Korea)

    ProsIt's a nice place to get trained in an early career. Despite of lower fee, there are still enough tasks to get this job done.

    ConsHave to accept quite lower package and prestige. This discount affects the salary at the next company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTop managements should be aware of where this firm is heading. There is actually no mid- and long-term strategy. This may be because of partnership structure.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
