    I worked at Hay Group full-time

    Pros

    It is a great company with good reputation and excellent worldwide recognition. It has a great potential market in a fast growing market like China where lake of understanding of modern HR, it prevented the growth.

    Cons

    In China the new leadership has build a very different culture, very Chinese culture, of dictatorial leadership, and very narrowed business minding. A culture to maintain not to adopt to the size and opportunity of the current Market.

    Advice to Management

    Think for the opportunities, respond to the market size and needs, and act as a public company instead of a small workshop. Business thinking is critical...
