    Pros

    Überwiegende Mehrheit der Bewertungen sind aus der Befragung der Mitarbeiter, nicht vom Admin.

    '- Bezahlung ist gut
    '- Alle Vergünstigungen, die die Berater erhalten
    '- Internationale Reisen

    Vast majority of reviews are from consulting staff not admin.

    - Pay is good
    - All the perks that the consultants get
    - International travel

    Cons

    Verwaltungspersonal im Grunde gut bezahlt, sind aber Dritte-Welt-Bürger. Außer, wenn sie vom Berater als solche behandelt werden

    '- IT-Management ist sehr chaotisch
    '- Flache Struktur; kaum eine Chance zu wachsen
    '- Kein richtiges technisches Training
    '- Erwarten Sie, auf Abruf ohne Belohnung zu sein
    '- niedriges Budget, schwache Ressourcen, überarbeitete Menschen

    Nach 3-4 Jahren haben Sie im wesentlichen gelernt, Ad-hoc zu arbeiten, aber nichts über IT. Machen Sie es nicht, wenn Sie eine Karriere in der IT-Branche suchen.

    Admin staff basically paid well but are 3rd world citizens. Except to be treated as such by consulting

    - IT Management are very chaotic
    - Flat structure; very little chance to grow
    - No real technical training
    - Expect to be on call with no recompense
    - Low budgets = weak resources = overworked people

    After 3-4 years you have essentially learnt to work adhoc and not learnt anything about IT. Don't do it if you except a career in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ja, die Mitarbeiter sind verzweifelt darauf verpflichtet, dass die Dinge funktionieren, aber das ist keine langfristige Lösung.

    Yes the staff are desperately committed to making things work but its not a long term solution.

    Doesn't Recommend
