    I have been working at Reply full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Dyamic and friendly enviroment with particular focus on new technologies (IoT, M2M, Social etc...) Good place for newly graduates or people with low experience with real possibilities to dive deeplly into a specific technology.

    Cons

    Like many consulting firms some times there is a lot of extra time (obviously it depends on the project, the customer etc...) Regarding promotions and career development I can say that the way is quite long.

    I have been working at Reply full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Young environment, not too much competitive. Colleagues usually help each other. Not too much strict about working hours (as long as you work at least 8 hour per day).

    Cons

    Basically no training, people are asked to work on technologies they don't know anything about and presented to the client as expert. Training on the job sometimes means that you are on your own. No professional training also means that people that try to teach you something are doing things the wrong way because they were l left on their own too.
    No quality in work, they want you to be fast even if it ends up in producing poor quality software. If you take a look ad the logo this is actually the idea they want to transmit to the clients (we are on the run, faster than the others).
    They will not push too much pressure on you about finishing you job in no-time, with poor-spec and no clear or shared plan, anyway you will be left apart and make no career progress if you do not agree to work this way ( often more than 8 hour per day). Sometimes you are also asked to work during weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to the best not the fastest.

    I have been working at Reply full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A lot to learn, especially for a fresh graduate. A decent salary (compared to other entry-level opportunities) and chance to grow.

    Cons

    Lack of organization and poor management. Depending on projects the enviroment can be stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need a better organization especially for big projects. A big project with only junior consultants and a manager who doesn't know much about technology always fail.

    Pros

    Interesting company with a good approach to IT consulting. Possibility to dive deepply into a specific industry/technology.
    Young company and relatively young management. Nice environment to work in.
    Lots of responsibilities from the beginning and a fair share of independence.

    Cons

    If the company wants to have only top performers (and this should be if the firm status wants to keep growing into consulting industry):
     - Salary should be higher.
     - Hiring process should be more strict and severe

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working to expanding the Business, get awareness around the firm and establish the status as one of the best european IT consulting firms

    Pros

    Good place to go to work as first experience after the university. The entry level salary is very good, compared to the competitors. Young people, dynamic and environment very friendly

    Cons

    The salary increase is not so fast, you don't change easily the project so you have the risk to become tired. There are sites in England or Germany, but the possibility, to do some experience there, is very low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give more responsabilities to the junior profile, in order to increase the engagement and to allow to grow professionally

    Pros

    Possibility to work with the better technologies, possibility to learn and to have responsibility. As first job it is a good opportunity.

    Cons

    Income is not so good also after several years of experience. It should be a little bit higher just to allow a better live experience.
