I worked at White Young Green full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Huge opportunities for international travel, especially if willing to relocate on a project by project basis (6month - 2 years cycle, but ad-hoc and little say in where). Independence to work alone, good for self-starters.
Cons – Tries but fails to be a professional services company to too many sectors. Old school management in HQ, bums on seats philosophy . Appalling HR, minimal appraisals (2 in 10 years), no CPD. Compensation below average. Huge number of redundancies 2010-2011. Debt issues. Check out share price WYG PLC (WYG.L)
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at White Young Green
Pros – I joined a company that has just been bought out but WYG and the 'old' ethos remained. i worked under an excellent direct manager and my career certainly advance greatly during my 4 years there. when a bigger and better opportunity came along i took ti and moved overseas, since the time i have left the company has been shaken to the core by the global financial problems and is a shadow of its former self
Cons – the reputation of certain offices and even certain managers severly affected the comnpnies reputation and i was often left trying to explain how my office was different from this. no question that some offices and sectors are far stronger than others
Advice to Senior Management – the top senior management (RD and above) are very detached from the workforce, particularly at a time when they should have been 'in the trenches' establishing the best way out of the mire they were in

I have been working at White Young Green
Pros – Interesting and challenging assignments - although management promising clients that a twenty page report can be polished off in half a day was a common occurence.
Cons – Global recession approaching so one would expect the board and the senior exec to be implementing strategies to combat the downturn. Instead they spent hundreds of man-hours and millions of pounds designing a new corporate logo.
Advice to Senior Management – The people you abandoned when the company ran into problems ARE actually people - not just numbers on a spreadsheet.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
