Pros

Every 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.

Cons

It 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 ManagementAdvice

Continue 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.

    Pros

    Lots of variety in Projects, working with a group of very smart people - you learn a lot, and you 'up your game' by mixing with very experienced peers.
    The team has energy, and a great collaborative culture.
    Metrics are very clear, and there is in effect a self-selection by results, so that you are always working with very experienced and driven individuals.

    Cons

    As is the nature of consultancy, sometimes there is a fighting over the 'percentage of the pie' i.e. who gets what percentage of the client contract price, rather than focus on growing the pie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Miller Heiman Sales Methodology is a very useful tool, but sometimes the focus on mechanics of the sales pipeline process gets bogged down - don't use this for settling scores or pointing out other's weaknesses, but to really collaborate to increase the effectiveness of prospecting.

    Interesting work with a team of talented people.

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

    Pros

    A 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.

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Don't put up with the old boys.
