    I have been working at Baringa Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Senior Partners seem genuinely interested in people and clients....

    Cons

    ....everyone else doesn't care. Partners (junior partners) are a malicious lot. Their insecurities are reflected in their attempts to keep the staff under their thumbs. They ensure no good ideas reach the clients unless the credit goes to them. The clients don't respect them either. I have had 3 clients in the past 2 years who have asked to remove the Partners and the Senior Managers on the accounts! They move... around in client offices with a high degree of arrogance, and virtually zero value add. It seems that the higher you go on the career ladder in Baringa, the more audacious you get. The pomposity, and complete disregard for the junior minions is a must have for getting promoted as well. Terrible company to work for. Has dimmed my light!

    Thank you for your feedback – we’re proud of the company we’ve become, and we’re very happy you are too! It’s great to hear you feel you have opportunity at your disposal. This is something that we feel is very important for our Consultant population in order to allow for progression and development. We appreciate that at times the nature of consulting can often mean working out of town, and can be challenge. We like to think we support with this through our out of town policies which I hope help ease some of the pressure for you. Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts on us :)

    Pros

    - The opportunities you get to develop yourself are excellent. Senior staff take a lot of time to give you feedback and help you improve your ways of working. The people you work with are very good at what they do and there are plenty of opportunities to learn from them. I find that I have developed rapidly since joining Baringa. - It's a great environment to develop your career. There are continuous... opportunities to take on greater challenges and increase your responsibility within the firm. You can also get excellent career mentors at Baringa, who will challenge you and help you to push your career in the direction that you want to go. There are also four promotion rounds a year. - The social network and the support network you get at Baringa is incredible. We have an excellent work social life, with plenty of opportunities for fun. The teams that you work with also provide a lot of support to you make sure that you are getting the help you need to work well both off and on client site. - You can really shape the company with your own ideas and initiatives. Baringa is always on the look out for new opportunities, and if you have an area that you are passionate about or interested in Baringa is a great environment to pursue this.

    Cons

    - Baringa has been a bit slow to think 'global' as an organisation, despite now having offices in several countries (and continents!). Baringa is making progress in this area, but it should continue to think globally, in order to work effectively from an operational point of view and best serve its clients.

    Advice to Management

    Think globaly; operationally, as well as commercially.
