    Pros

    La structure et la valeur du consulting étaient définies simplement et fonctionnaient très bien.

    The structure or the add value of consulting was simply defined and was operated very well.

    Cons

    La structure était assez bien définie donc quand vous avez l'expérience vous n'avez pas besoin de compétence spécifique. Mais l'exigence est haute car la compétition et la pression des clients sont lourdes.

    The structure was quite well defined so once you get the experience you do not need special skill. But the requirement is high because of competition and customer pressure is heavy.

    Pros

    Hypercube est une technologie très intéressante qui permet aux clients de déterminer les causes de phénomènes très complexes. Il est très enthousiasmant de travailler pour une telle équipe grâce aux nombreuses applications. Il peut être utilisé par exempl

    Hypercube is a very interesting technology that enables customers to determine causes for very complex phenomenon. Working in such a team is exciting because of the numerous applications it can have: for example, it can be used to have a better understanding of churn in telecom or to reduce the default rate in industrial production. In R&D specifically, even though the technology, there is still some work to do, especially in the software developpment.

    Cons

    Hypercube pourrait être mieux intégré à BearingPoint: c'est une petite entreprise au sein de BearingPoint qui comporte de nombreux désavantages des petites sociétés.

    Hypercube could benefit from a better integration in BearingPoint: it is a little company inside BearingPoint that shares many drawbacks of small companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Les dirigeants d'Hypercube devraient faire plus confiance à leurs collègues, mieux écouter ce qu'ils ont à dire et tenter d'être plus clairs dans leurs attentes.
    Rien à dire sur les autres managers de BearingPoint.

    The upper management of Hypercube should trust more his colleagues, listen more to what is said and try to be clearer in his expectations.
    Nothing to say about the other manager at BearingPoint.

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    Découvrir les nouvelles industries est, à chaque fois, un défi passionnant. Se trouver dans un environnement de compétitivité vous pousse à développer vos compétences.

    Discovering new industries is each time very challenging. Being in a very competitive environment pushes you to develop your skills.

    Cons

    Pas de place pour la vie personnelle, ils vous font travailler comme des fous sans contrepartie pour les soirées que vous passez avec leurs clients. Avec la crise économique, vous passez plus de temps au siège à surfer sur Internet plutôt qu'avec un client.

    No time for personal life, they make you work like hell and are not rewarding you for the evenings you spend at their client. With the economic crisis, you spend more time at the HQ surfing on the internet rather than at the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Les salariés sont traitées comme des machines ou des robots, quelquefois, vous découvrez sur intranet que le lendemain vous êtes programmé pour un client, bien entendu personne ne se soucie si vous avez été préparé ou briefé pour cette tâche...

    People are treated like machines/robots and sometimes you find out on the intranet that the following day you are planned at a client, of course no one made sure you were prepared or biefed on the task...
