    I worked at Hay Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great talented people, social atmosphere, most are very approachable, good team spirit within teams.

    Cons

    Low pay for majority of roles and minimum rises even when you receive excellent feedback in the end of year reviews or promoted, they will literally try and give you the bare minimum regardless which means you can be on the same money as someone who has performed relatively much worse/has a bad reputation in the business. The performance management is non-existent, the better you perform the more they attempt to give you regardless of how many projects you already have, this means the poor performers get given no work and stay employed and the strong performers are run in to the ground (and usually resign) and this is never addressed regardless of how well known it is. This creates a very de-motivating atmosphere, as they also tend to make promotion decisions on what face fits over who actually deserves it, promotion choices seem to be politically driven rather than talent. Experience there really does depend on the individual some managers are good, but it is not because of Hay Group, therefore incentives for working long hours are at your managers discretion, I was lucky and was given time in lieu and reward vouchers for long hours but that was not the company standard. You can get exposure to high profile/challenging work but I would argue that is by fluke/those above not carrying out their responsibilities and it falling to you -lack of efficient resourcing rather than thought out career development. Essentially if something comes in they give it to who they can/can force to agree to it.

    Decisions are made by a select few, they do not have the culture or approach of listening to all employees (although they say they do), particularly those on the lower levels even when they have direct experience or interaction with the customers.

    They are not commercial, a sale is a sale and resources are flipped between projects dependent on what is flavour of the month which means new customers get everything and loyal customers are short changed. Consultants are treated too much like new business sales people where the sale is what counts, not how the work is delivered, feedback and whether the customer returns again. They give out awards/promotions for business won - that we then lose the next year, this incentivises behaviour that has a longer-term negative impact, do anything for a sale even if the admin staff cannot resource for it or work to the SLA’s and no accountability is given to that consultant it is those organising it who gets the blame. Even the good guys start to think what is the point of delivering work to a high standard consistently across all clients - that is not what is going to get me promoted/pay rise. Projects that have been running for multiple years are overlooked and that work is not recognised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously review your HR (who are not professional and like to gossip), start doing some performance management and holding people to account, recruit/promote people that can people manage. Listen to all staff it will help make better commercial decisions and improve motivation and engagement – you might also want to practice what you preach once in a while
