I have been working at Acando Consulting full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great minds, ambitious consultants with drive. A good client base in most cities, exciting opportunities in terms of projects and client challenges.

Cons

More focus on money than value, top steered organisation. A lot of talk about team work but rather bad at living up to that goal - individual monetary incentments a part of the problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment
    Great work-life balance

    Cons

    -Not good place for junior employees, you need at least 10 years of experience
    -Not very ambitious consultants. it seems acando is the place you go to when you have children and don't want to work more than 40 hours per week
    -Very weak bonus system that inhibits team work
    -Low salary for consultancy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing young talent instead of hiring washed-up mid-tier consultants

    I worked at Acando Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Left on your own to get on with it. Most of the project you are given are the projects that the client does not want to do so you are always in a lose, lose projects So if you always like losing than maybe Acando UK is for you.

    Cons

    No Management involvement, Management do not understand the market, Body shop, acts like an agency, no benefits , no hr involvement, in at the deep-end with clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what your group is doing. Project Management is not a product you can sell . You are losing too many key people.
