    I worked at Concentra Analytics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Feels like a family-run company
    Great opportunities for early career growth - if you know how to seize them for yourself
    You can set your own work-life balance
    Hires foreign workers

    Cons

    There are too many directors with competing visions for the company's future, so strategy is sometimes unclear

    There is a clear pecking order between operational teams and client-facing teams - operational teams have slower progression

    Gender balance is improving, but still questionable

    Advice to Management

    Focus on doing fewer things at a higher standard

    Pros

    A structured programme to develop the technical and soft skills to become a consultant. Great perks. Staff are smart and v.friendly.

    Cons

    Pay is a little below average for consulting. The company
    also seems to still be figuring out its corporate identity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the friendly startup like culture as Concentra scales and grows.

    I worked at Concentra Analytics full-time

    Pros

    Great offices with free breakfast, open bar on a Friday evening, ping pong table and modern decor. Good selection of social clubs and activities. Friendly people.

    Cons

    Too many egos and dispute at senior level and not enough communication with more junior staff. Disjointed proposition and unclear business strategy. If you want to get ahead here, you have to get political and make connections with the 'right' people - otherwise you risk being left behind. For a business that sells org design software, it's ironic that the company structure is so disjointed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring/promoting directors and sort out your business strategy.
