      Pros

      Opportunity to work internationally throughout Asia Lots of training (entirely soft skills though) Opportunities to build relationships with senior management Good benefits - housing, relocation, medical insurance Amazing work life balance

      No commercial responsibility given within first 3-5 years Lots of learning by osmosis and minute taking Very limited transferrable skills - trainees are too generalist to be of much use to other organizations Poor incentive scheme rewards slackers Stale pool of management talent where most people are from the same background
