    Interesting work with a team of talented people.

    Anonymous (Former Employee)
    Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsA broad range of technology projects and talented individuals make it a great place to learn from others. A generally positive culture fosters a can do attitude from staff. Very open to input from all staff at any level. Alan Richardson is a good CEO.

    ConsPoor flexibility for working parents. They offer flexible hours but not part time support. Consultancy can demand short notice travel. Some seniors in the business have very poor people skills, but as long time employees their behaviour is tolerated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't put up with the old boys.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent place to build an engineering career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat exposure to clients and different industries, unbeatable variety of work, proactive career management, you can choose your own path, great colleagues, and free lunches.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive seniors and managers more incentive to interact with junior engineers.

    Poor morale as a result of disconnected top management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSometimes interesting, varied and challenging technical work.
    Good technical support, tools, equipment and facilities.
    Expertise in many fields.
    Reasonable benefits, including a free lunch.

    ConsAn opaque bonus scheme that is massively weighted toward top management.
    Poor accommodation in terms of office space.
    Management largely appear arrogant and uncommunicative to the workforce.
    Poor morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to connect more with the workforce, encourage them to properly share their concerns, and effectively address them. Failure to do this will result in the company hemorrhaging personnel when the job market picks up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Much better then other companies

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsEvery day is challenging but ultimately rewarding and exciting, as you get to work with smart, motivated people on interesting projects. Even the management are very good, and it's traditional to knock them in reviews.

    ConsIt takes a while to get used to the pace and parallelism of work. Some people stall and aren't re-motivated or moved on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue as is in your professional running of the company, in being accessible and leading by example. Remember to focus on people as well as metrics, but that goes of any organisation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
