    Pros

    Great compensation, some amazing people. Bloomberg access.

    Cons

    Asia management is sloppy. US leadership is very slow on execution, fast in conceptualization, resulting in neglect and an uphill battle over in Asia as they fail slowly. These factors lead to stymied skills and experience development, Asia management tries but are at the whim and thumb of US counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    Focus a lot more on training and development, provide examples and business cases in which your analysts can actually help you out, don't use resources because its 'cheap'/'available'. People generally want to make an impact - provide them a legitimate opportunity and conceptualize with them, not tell them ' its your project' without knowing business cases. Teamwork guys, do you know it?
