MBB Culture & Work/Life Balance in SE Asia

 
#1 MBB Culture & Work/Life Balance in SE Asia

Hello there,

Can anyone please provide some color into the culture and work/life balance for the MBB within the SE Asia region (KL/Jakarta/Bangkok). I've heard that China/Taiwan/HK/Korea/Japan are considered sweatshops with 12AM being an early night, and wanted to see if SE Asia was similar.

Thanks!

Camster to Bushy Eyebrow Partner (#2)

My little brother has a good friend who worked at BCG KL after doing MBA at Columbia. It's not a 'sweatshop'. If you want first-hand info, I can put you in touch. From what I was told on FB chats, it's actually OK. Though... at times, you might be on the bench for a considerable period of time if there are no projects. I also know some of the partners at the MBB offices in SEA. No 'sweatshop'. They know how to have fun!

Life in KL/Jakarta/BKK can be really good. I should know! Even more so if you spoke Malay/Indonesian and Thai. Almost everyone in KL speaks English (or Manglish as they call it). Not the case in BKK.

Finally, do consider Vietnam. Don't limit ASEAN to KL/SG/BKK/ID.

Post just got me thinking of a things-I-hear-in-work-on-a-daily-basis-but-never-outside-of-work list:

"provide some colour"

"Give some flavour"

"Deep dive"

"Touch base"

"Alignment"

Oh Dan, you'll get so much synergy going on forum now

Please try not to operationalize what you see here in daily life...

Hi Camster, it would be great to be put in touch. I have an upcoming round with them. Would you mind shooting an email to IG196100@Gmail.com when convenient?

Thanks!
