    Pros

    The coworkers are great and every now and then, or actually quite often, you find yourself in some very interesting projects. A lot of flexibility in working times and maintaining a work-life balance is quite easy.

    Cons

    Sometimes you feel stuck with same type of projects one after another and the salary is not very competitive at least on the lower levels. Quite a few of "normal" big company problems.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on agility, different ways of compensation and finding the right kind of projects and challenges for employees.

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Support 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 Management

    Value 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!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 Management

    Clarify roles, accountability and authority and allow people to get creative with their own ideas


  10. Usually boring job with good benefits

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Long working hours, rigid work environment, no flexibility

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible


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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Managers should have more soft skills to develop their teams.
