    Pros

    Really good work/life balance Great feeling of family Really wants to be perceived as a consultancy, not a CV factory. So tries to hire people who want to be real specialists and bring value to clients Not a hard sell environment Wide boys are not tolerated Being ethical is a key principal value of the business Really nice place to work where you can make a decent income (given you're not in London) and other rewards can be good too

    Cons

    A bit stuck in the past at times. There isn't enough investment in ensuring the business is at the forefront of industry and can be skeptical of new things and ideas In danger of becoming out of date compared to our competitors Leadership can be slow to respond at times. Both to consultant issues and outside threats Can be quite old skool in approach - e.g. phone, desk, computer, crack on.

    Advice to Management

    Look at changes in the external market and react quicker Need to invest more in opportunities for mobile and online Turn projects, which will push the business forward, faster. Invest in better systems for consultants to use. The current ones feel, look and act old and does cause a lot of anguish Do more things which can build the company name, rather than relying on old skool 'person and phone' approach. Other businesses have entered the same markets, built their name quicker and have overtaken us by doing other things.

    Pros

    Rewarding, fun, relaxed and sociable.

    Cons

    As Blue Pelican were a growing business, some naive decisions have been made by the management in the past, but all mistakes and issues have (eventually been recognised and addressed or improved over time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward those who work hard and consistently perform, continue to swiftly address under performance and continue to hire appropriate consultants with a strong cultural fit for the business, rather than just looking for ability to bill.
