    I have been working at Concentra Consulting full-time

    Pros

    - People
    - New Offices
    - Engagement activities from HR (e.g. Health Club, Boot Camp, Social events)
    - Work Life balance
    - Combination of friendly and professional environment

    Cons

    - no clear career path for support teams (even though it's developing but not yet established)
    - Quick business growth that results in being super busy at work (also business growth is exciting for all!)

    Advice to Management

    Realise the importance of having the need to have bigger teams within support departments (Finance, HR, Client Support, IT).

    Pros

    Great software, in particular OrgVue. There is nothing like it, and it's very powerful. Wonderful new offices in central London. Really friendly staff with a great work hard and play hard attitude. Seniors managers are approachable, friendly and available. Open bar every Friday in the office.

    Cons

    There is no UX Department, and only a single UX designer is expected to work on numerous projects. Seniors do not understand the difference between UX and UI. Confused and conflicting priorities amongst on how to move forward with the UX of their products, in particular OrgVue. Working hours are 9am-6pm.

    Advice to Management

    Build a UX Department, and do some thorough User Research. This will take time, but it will be worth it.

    Pros

    Talented people (product and delivery teams), enthusiastic management team, prospective field, fantastic location

    Cons

    Unprofessional staffs, no proper learning & development programmes, no career maps.. no benefit packages

    Advice to Management
