    I worked at Newton Europe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I got recruited from the US - without a doubt, working at Newton turbo-charged my professional development compared to opportunities available to me in the States.

    I worked on numerous projects, each of which presented a unique and challenging problem to solve; I got to work with some incredible individuals; all the while, I felt I had an amazing support network from my peers, my supervisors, and the upper management.

    The culture is amazing, and you really get the sense that people care about you, your clients, and the company. There's also a work-hard-play-hard mentality, so everybody is a ton of fun to hang out with.

    Cons

    While my professional life was great, the consulting lifestyle naturally takes its toll on your social life. My situation was exacerbated by the fact I came from overseas and didn't have existing friends, so I could only really spend time getting to know my coworkers.

    Additionally, the company is currently going through some growing pains as it becomes a larger business; however, nearly all of the issues are admin/strategic.

    Advice to Management

    Find creative ways to keep the company culture intact as the number of consultants increase! This is Newton's best feature and it will be a challenge to maintain as the headcount goes up.

    Regarding the growing pains - finish preparing the company for growth; define a clear strategy for the growth phase; make sure that the targets are realistic and risks are identified/managed.

    Operational Improvement Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newton Europe (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Interview at career fair. Then Skype interview with HR, then online test, then phone with director, then Skype again with 2 consultant, then on site case study. The case study was surprisi. You might think you need to present results but no, you have to simply ask questions and go with the flow don't impose anything. Don't act as know it all.

    Newton - Implementing winning KPIs

    Identifying the correct key performance indicators (KPIs) has significant benefits, but too often these values - which help demonstrate how effectively a company is achieving its key business objectives - are poorly understood and executed. They are frequently difficult to measure, meaningless or confusing, and conflict with ultimate business goals.

  • We're excited to announce that Newton has been shortlisted for a National Business Award (NBA). This is the fourth year in a row for us, but a new category. We're one of 10 finalists in the running for a Market Gravity Innovation Award for our work in local government adult and children's social care. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIKp9

    Newton - Newton's work in social care shortlisted for National Business Award

    Finalists were chosen from hundreds of the country's top businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 categories. They will give a live presentation to a panel of judges in September and the award will be announced at a ceremony on November 10th, Grosvenor House, Park Lane London.
