    Great rewards, upward mobility, and autonomy

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsYou have a lot of freedom to build you own business - if you have an entrepreneurial spirit, sky is the limit to your success. Management has a lot of experience to contribute and very open door policy. Very transparent reward and salary structure - you know what you will get and no hidden surprises.

    ConsIt takes time to build your business so if you don't have a sense of urgency from the beginning, it is easy to get caught behind the curve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo new consultants with no experience, start them off at researcher level for 6-months so they learn the value of 'sense of urgency' before being put into a P&L situation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ingenium is a fantastic place to work and especially so for those who value professional autonomy.

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsIngenium is a growing company and has a great corporate culture with a team of extremely talented consultants, associates and back office staff. Management is very transparent and responsive.

    ConsIngenium isn't a giant corporation and so it lacks the infrastructure and some of the training and development opportunities that one might expect of a large multinational.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on training.

    Not bad. Not great.

    (Former Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsThe pros are industry rather than company specific. It was a great opportunity to gain insight into a variety of multinational companies as well as build a diverse network. If money is your driving force, then this is a high-potential industry to "bring home the bacon".

    ConsAs for the company, extremely long hours and relentless micromanagement are to be expected. Very little constructive feedback in difficult times [in fact, virtually none] and no appreciation for the non-quantifiable contributions. The company faced cash-flow problems, along with key executives and management "jumping ship", after the Lehman shock and was rescued only after being acquired by an IT consulting firm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership should adopt effective leadership skills, including a more human touch. A little less focus on KPIs (granted, they are important) and more attention to the intangibles - more specifically, goodwill business building and teamwork. The industry is cut-throat enough as it is but it should not be as such within individual recruiting organizations. In other words, an overall stronger focus on the future is advised.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    steep learning curve

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgreat learning experience, very well-structured inside training program, flexible with your own schedule as long as you get your work done. great culture

    Consit is more about the recruiting industry rather than the company, it is a very rewarding profession is you are good at it, but the job can get really frustrating if you are not that good. you get kicked out very quickly

    Advice to Senior Managementgreat management, relatively flat structure encourages creativity and open communication. constantly improving on all aspects of the company. great marketing and highly client-oriented. great company to work for!

    Okay if you don't mind a little micromanagement.

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsNice people to work with as a whole. Dynamic and exciting work environment. Environment has a "frontier feel" of an American business in Japan.

    ConsManagement makes decisions based on emotion over logic. Definitely playing at the kiddy pool here in terms of strategic thinking as a firm.

    Advice to Senior Management"Ethics" is not merely a business catch-phrase. Reputations are built on how you interact with your clients as well as your employees.
