    I worked at Value Partners (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn fast, good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Almost no training, too much work, working over 12h per day is very normal. Working on weekends is also quite common.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce working hours, people don't produce more if they stay more hours at the office... these extra hours are not productive. Don't incentive that!

    I worked at Value Partners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, great colleagues, very interesting projects, great clients, big exposure to senior management of clients, possibility to work abroad.

    Cons

    Company has little guidance from senior management, so ups and downs are constant. Capacity to "shut up and dance" quite often counts more than capacity to deliver. Little or no incentives for internal entrepreneurship. Very high senior management to BA/associates ratio.

    Advice to Management

    Should be more focused on people, after all this is a services company. Company's culture should be immediately reviewed, incentives are highly misplaced. Alumni usually don't hire VP for their consulting needs when they're in the industry, and that tells a lot about the company.

    Good international staffing possibilities if shown potential; certain good senior managers from global level with high quality of project delivery

    Improve leadership and mentorship
