      Great place for a global perspective - long hours to be expected though

      Aug 23, 2021 - Senior Business Analyst in Singapore

      Pros

      The people in this Firm is what keeps you going! Smart, kind and really considerate. Not a competitive environment, but it's intense given the nature of delivering high quality work to clients who pay a lot. In the lower tenure life, the adjustment to the job might be quite difficult.

      Cons

      The hours are long. Typical work day may look like 930am to 11pm, and has become the norm. Especially tougher in Asian offices.

      Great ppl, mediocre leadership

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great place to work, colleagues are intelligent and friendly. A true 'caring meritocracy' as the firm preaches

      Cons

      Leadership (partners and above) are mediocre in this region. Many of them got there through back scratching or banding together in "mafia -like" behaviour, not as meritocratic as other offices.
