Pros

Fast paced environment where consultants are able to get a lot of experience quickly in their career. Overall a great place for a quick career boost.

Cons

Not easy to explore other career opportunities within the company. Company focuses on time working for the company rather than experience when reviewing promotions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Still lots of people with deep technical skill. Flexible working environment. Good salary. Interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Everything and everybody is an interchangeable resource. No issues with wasting lots of your time (without compensation) to save 50 cents. Never ending process improvements that lead to more and more meaningless work for absolutely no business benefit. Relentless focus on cutting expenses instead of increasing revenue. Morale is really bad.
    Salary is good but other compensation (bonuses, stock etc.) has disappeared over the years.

    Advice to Management

    You can't cut costs indefinitely ... need to earn money at some point in time. Stop treating people like numbers at least not as integers. Integrity around company/personal values.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The landscaped grounds of the Hursley site are nice to walk around during the lunch hour when the weather is nice.

    Cons

    The pay is below the normal market rate, often by quite a large margin, I would say anything up to thirty per-cent less than other companies pay for the same work elsewhere in the UK.

    Advice to Management

    You need to increase the rates of pay you give to employees on the Hursley site by a large amount in order to become competitive.
