    Former Employee - PLM Consultant in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at PCO Innovation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good to start a career, you travel across the world.
    For north americans, you will visit places you've dreamed
    of, specially in Europe. Pay is excellent well above
    average, specially if you are at the customer site for a long period.
    If your in it for the long haul, gun for the money as career wise there
    no progress, the company has a flat hierarchy. You start as a consultant and
    and end as one as well.
    On the other hand, a strong sense of accomplishment when the system you worked on
    helps a real product goes into production (ex planes, cars).
    To get the most out of the experience, start out young and single with the company(24 years)
    stay on for 6 years and get out at best 30 and at worst 35.

    Cons

    Upon arriving at the client site, the company pays for the hotel
    for only two weeks, after that you are on your own.
    Most of the technologies thet you will work on are large enterprise
    software. They do not reflect the latest technologies.
    Average employe age is around 27, after 30 you start feeling
    disconnected from your younger colleagues.
    Because you might spend more than a year at the client site,
    you build better relationships with client employees then
    with your own colleagues. Most people of you class (hired date)
    leave the company between 2-3 years
    for familly reasons, better lifestyle or girlfriends pressure.
    You might get stuck at a crappy nowhere customer site.
    HR and recruiter turnover is above 75%. You know you've been in the company
    for more than 2 years when you don't recognize HR when you get back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should broad company offering to achieve critical scale. A lot of customers do not want to give us projects managements because company lacks project management skills and experience in engineering systems.

    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at PCO Innovation.

    Interview Details

    I got contacted by one of their talent acquisition officers, we had a chat on the phone, and I went in for part of an interview. The interviewer wanted to know my salary range, and they said that this is because they have strict salary brackets for entry level consultants. The salary was lower than I was okay with ($45-$50 in Seattle with lower possibilities of traveling). There is a java test, but we did not go onto that.
