    Interesting projects, meh culture

    Jun 24, 2021 - Data Scientist Consultant in Lisbon
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Projects keep changing and are interesting - Real team-work as all team-members work towards delivering to the client what will satisfy them - great opportunity for brainstorming ideas and building fast - Space and motivation to learn new skills and apply your skills onto practical projects with clear deadlines - Opportunities to try your hand in technical tools you've never worked with before

    Cons

    - Little diversity - not very woman- or foreigner-friendly - Focused on appearances - Your experience is very related to the team-mates you are assigned with and your technical lead - Some project managers offer little guidance/input/help - Used to say they proposed remote work but managers weren't too keen on it and you felt compelled to overshare and do it only when really necessary - COVID probably changed this - upper management has bad people skills and can act inappropriately in public - Progression is very slow and you felt compelled to go pitch into project proposals - no real career as an individual contributor

    Jun 7, 2021 - Talent Manager in Lisbon
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Amazing enviroment (family like), with great values and team work; Most operations are very well structured and organized; Talent Managers are allowed to act independently and all have a perspective of growth of building their own team of consultants, whom they also are responsible to manage their evaluations quarterly. Everyone also is entitled to have a training plan, and there are often courses or certifications available or implemented. There are also mindfullness open sessions being practiced on a weekly basis. Everything is done with a sense of great care, humanity and atention. There are often team meetings with both your supervising managers, your direct team, and your unit's team, which helps building a good sense of community. I truly believe this to be a very differentiated consulting company in Portugal in every way.

    Cons

    Perhaps not always having the best possible tools (e.g. Linkedin Recruiter) in the market to work with, however, there are already plans going on to starting to implement some of them;
