    I worked at Sia Partners (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    London .....Zero (well a few great people)

    Globally the firm is dynamic, entrepreneurial and growing fast. Offices in amazing locations and diverse clients can make for a rewarding career.

    Cons

    Leadership in London is something to behold. Imagine all the worst parts of being in a big 4 firm and multiply it by a factor of 10. I have never been in an office with such a high turnover and never seen so many people fired with such disregard for an individual and their hard work.

    Don't expect a pay rise, don't expect a bonus and don't expect any investment in you such as training.

    Advice to Management

    London - acquire a new firm

    Elsewhere keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Good and fun people to work with ( club med like siminars), was lucky to have developed excellent relationships with senior management whom I remain close to. Good potential outside of Japan. Cons only focuses on japan.

    Cons

    Extremely painful exit process due to a mistake made regarding Japan employment contract benefits ( company apologized though).No capabilities ( people and research) in Japan to compete seriously with incumbents . Namely resource augmentation type projects in Japan. No strategic investment into building capabilities in Japan, the most mature consumer market in asia. Poor governance framework.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on other markets where the firm has competitive advantage

    I have been working at Sia Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sia Partners is a great place to develop expertises and soft skills. In Singapore, there is an ambitious growth plan and the head of Singapore ensures everyone can be part of it and can contribute to the development of the firm. There is a positive outlook and consultants benefit from it.
    The process for internal move from one office to another works well and allow consultants to discover different countries and way of working.

    Cons

    I don't think there are any cons at this time. We are always learning and adjusting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work locally and globally!

    Pros

    Cons

    - Less training opportunities compared to large companies
    - Communication & Collaboration between global offices difficult
