Anyone know what it’s like working at BCG in Tokyo? I’ve seen some pretty bad reviews on Glassdoor, not sure if the good reviews are real since they are pretty short

    Dude... It's Japan. Of course the reviews are real. People work themselves to death in Japan (literally).

      Consulting is in general cutthroat. I can't imagine how horrible would it be in Japan.

      With that said, there are exceptions.
      Bain and Company is a consulting company and is apparently great.

    But still better than US.....they call at will employees in siliconvalley "temp" contractors.....real employees have tenure and dont worry so much of layoffs.
    Also very little immigration labor....which are mostly foreign born japanese descendents.

    With every bow you get fcked by american whores that is

      Obviously I was kidding.. but jokes aside, Japan is a place for hard working people.
      I’ve heard from folks that people don’t take vacation for many years in a row
