    Good experience for Consultancy, great colleagues

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood people to work with, flexible, friendly working environment. Many opportunities to progress for consultancy staff. Good benefits and pay levels. Great multi-national working environment. Work hard and play hard! All staff are very committed to their roles.

    ConsSupport staff are not valued as highly as the consultancy staff and that makes it difficult to maintain morale. All staff work really hard to make the company a success and it is a real shame when only a select few are recognised for this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue ALL team members, they all work hard to make the company a success, not just the select few! You have some highly committed support staff who are dedicated and put 150% into their role for the company, don't dismiss this!

    The management had no idea what they were doing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe salary is Ok and you get a decent life work balance, projects can be interesting sometimes

    ConsThere are absolutely no accountabilities and nobody knew what they were doing, no sign of appreciation. You can spend one year without knowing what you really have to do. Consultants should be hired to think and expand business, not to do the routine work of analysts

    Advice to Senior ManagementClarify roles, accountability and authority and allow people to get creative with their own ideas

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Usually boring job with good benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEveryone is easy to talk, people are helpful. If you are lucky you get to involved in interesting projects, which might be international.

    ConsLong working hours, rigid work environment, no flexibility

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more flexible

    Nobody will really guide you, have to do things by your own and find ways to improve your job.

    Junior Engineer (Current Employee) São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

    ProsReally nice for those who like working with projects. You get to know many things, will surely visit a plant.

    ConsLack of leadership, it's like nobody really knows what has to be done. No PMO successfully implanted yet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should have more soft skills to develop their teams.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Was a good organization but did not manage growth well and now is undergoing significant restructuring.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-Was dominant Pulp & Paper engineering company in the world in 90s and 00s and still is the largest but not so dominant.
    -diversified into Energy, Environment, Urban Transportation
    -offices in 47 countries

    Cons-did not manage growth well and now is cutting back
    -has become very bureaucratic (run by lawyers and accountants) with too many levels
    -planning to outsource many support functions (eg. IT, accounting)
    -high turnover in middle management (like a revolving door)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
