Go beyond the pay cheque

Benefits at Morgan McKinley | Part 2 of 6

I haven’t worked for every recruiting company in Japan, but I have worked in a few. Morgan McKinley’s benefits are valuable and let me have a sustainable lifestyle. Let me “lift the veil” and say a few things about our benefits that will go beyond the typical salary discussion.

Compensation scheme
For consultants, sales commissions make up a sizable portion of your overall salary. There is a base salary and the chance to earn more - in some cases incredibly more. The sales function is key to the business, and consultants earn based on their performance. I appreciate this because it adds personal motivation, which is far better than team targets. I feel as though the chance of financial reward can go as far as I can perform. However, it’s not the only thing I enjoy about working at Morgan McKinley.

I am a big fan of the vacation allowance here in Japan, a generous 20 days per year. Some people in my office visit home two or three times per year in addition to weekend getaways. To be honest, it’s more than I need, but it makes me feel comfortable. 

Flex time
The most important benefit to me is the flex time system we introduced a few years ago. It’s allowed me to have a healthier lifestyle and align my personal goals with my work style. I can take a long lunch or use a block of time to go to the gym. As an example, if I know I’ll have a 7PM meeting at a cafe, I’ll leave the office early around 5:30PM to work out at the gym. Working out makes me happy and I feel like I’m pushing business forward at the same time.

We also have an open bar once a month. We take our top performers on a trip, and last year was 3 days in Okinawa. This year we’re planning on a weekend in Vietnam. Other benefits, such as health insurance, pension, and unemployment insurance are all provided in full as typical in Japan. 

If you’re considering a role in recruiting, or simply would like to know more about how we do things here at Morgan McKinley, feel free to reach out. We’re looking for people who can create a the best technology consulting practice in Tokyo. You can see our current opportunities here.
