Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Sia Partners gearbeitet (Über 3 Jahre)
Entrepreneurial culture, young and diverse smart and kind people, yearly club-med like seminars, was given a great opportunity to build and lead a company in a very tough mature competitive consulting market environment. Expanded my client network tremendously. Built excellent relationship with regional senior management.
No consulting capabilities and brand recongnition in Japan. Although the company apologized to me, extremely painful exit process due to a fundamental error made over employee benefits labor law. Mostly resource augmentation type consulting and very limited intellectual property knowledge base, mostly tactically regionally led with no long term strategic investment funneled into building consulting team for the new Japan office.
Rat an das Management
Strenghen the governance and control. Be serious and long term thinking about investing into local consulting capabilities for new location development. Take care of your people when they exit as much as when they enter.
