    Pros

    Excellent team environment and great support. Huge network to draw resources from.
    Work is interesting and varying. And one day is never the same as the next. Topics and case studies keep you stimulated.
    Senior management are very supportive and highly knowledgable
    External social activities contribute well towards team building efforts
    Working with high profile clients

    Cons

    Low salary in relation to other companies operating within the same industry.
    Package does not offer benefits, like medical and provident fund or pension fund (should be basic offering)
    Micro-management at times due to pressure of deadlines and lack of trust.

    Advice to Management

    Packages should be on par, and competitive, with other companies in the consulting and research field
    Benefits, such as medical and provident, should be a standard offering, especially when working for a global company
    Staff members who are able to manage themselves should be left to do so. Micro-management tends to hamper their performance, as opposed to the perceived impression it gives of "driving" it.
    Company should look at supporting staff who wish to improve their skills set by means of further studies
