No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Great culture and people/colleagues/friends
- Most supervisors and directors are friendly and mixes with the analyst and associates
- Good amount of deal flow
- Great brand name in Asia
- Don't really have a culture of "Face-time"

Cons

- Bonus pool has been decreasing during the past few years
- Brand name not as strong as other top players in the US
- Defection of top dealmakers to rivals recently, affecting deal flow
- Hours are quite long

Advice to Management

May need to think of a solution (most probably higher compensation package?) to retain or attract top rainmakers, otherwise the firm may lose out to top rivals within the Asia Pacific region

    Pros

    good opportunity to come up with new ideas. Sometimes if your manager is favorable then you really excel in what you do.

    Cons

    Official politics is way too ooo much... people like to talk and discuss more then doing the real work. Managers do not trust staff that much.
