    I have been working at Cerebrus Consultants full-time

    Pros

    The company provides ample opportunities to work across different sectors and various facets of HR consulting. The Senior Management team has a strong sense of business and embody the highest level of work ethics. The Senior team is quite hands-on, work closely with the clients as well as the internal team to ensure delivery of superior work quality.

    The entire team is very friendly and non-political with a general sense of growth and development of one another while having an atmosphere of healthy competition in the team, which is very rare in a consulting kind of setup where generally it’s a flat structure. Many of the employees have stayed in the organization for long years because of the growth opportunities, rich work and a very friendly and flexible work environment. If you perform well, the management makes sure you are appropriately rewarded and have your own career path within.

    Would highly recommend Cerebrus Consultants to anybody who is willing to learn, grow and excel in their career.

    Cons

    Should diversify its presence in new-age sectors and some more nearby countries. There is vast knowledge repository internally which should be cashed on.

    I have been working at Cerebrus Consultants full-time

    Pros

    Working with Cerebrus Consultants is itself a great perk and a bright opportunity for any HR professional wanting to work in the consulting Arena. I feel that the biggest positive of Cerebrus is that the stable Senior Management team and has been in place since its inception with few valuable additions to it. This has enabled a strong and consistent culture to percolate down the team with values, ethics and commitments running into its veins. Working with a strong senior management and an adequate sized company has its own share of benefits with the major being more one to one interaction at all levels and a personal touch to the clients ensuring high quality levels.
    This has also been a boon to the organisation since this paves way to good and great projects with companies willing to hire Cerebrus for the great quality of work and valuable insights from the top and experienced management. It goes without saying that this not only gives benefit to the industry but is instrumental in the growth of the employees as well since they get to learn a lot.

    Cons

    I feel that should be introduction and usage of new technology which would benefit the clientele in long run. With Cerebrus working on prestigious projects in India I believe it’s time to spread wings and leave impression in other countries, which would not only widen the horizons of Cerebrus but would also introduce the world to practices in Indian HR scenario. This may some day benefit the countries including India to get the best of HR practices for implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Good Work

    Pros

    None. Just can't think of any advantage working here .

    Just nothing .

    Tag of consulting experience that's it may be .

    Cons

    It's just a bunch of old non dynamic ladies who are running this organisation . To put it candidly instead of being a housewife gossiping , they have opened up this consultants . They have no ideas , very orthodox , shabby office . It's just they are surviving due to few contacts of the director of the company .

    Sharp tounge , they feel that people from line hr are nothing infront of them .

    Advice to Management

    Be non political ladies .

    Pros

    Women have greater chances to get selected.

    Cons

    They promise something to lure you and then do not keep their word. The managers tend to miss the deadlines on their own and expect us to work for them in time.

    Pros

    One can learn but work is repetitive. Few large clients. C&B practice has decent projects though limited to junior level benchmarking.

    Cons

    Very distrustful environment. Highly political. Long hours of work. Leaders are not very competent, some of them are surviving just for long service. No work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and be honest. Trust people who work for you. Practice what you preach.
