    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Equal Experts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    EE offers good flexible working, great salaries and interesting projects.

    Cons

    EE talks about being built on values, but that is all it is - talk. Transparency is not present despite it being marketed as a key value in the organisations success. In reality, there is backstabbing, lies, favoritism and a low moral. HR doesn't look out for employees, instead, it breeds distrust between teams and people. EE looks like a shiny new toy on the outside, but on the inside its falling apart at the seams.

    Pros

    Awesome place to work. It's also very different to most consultancies I've worked for/with: - Everyone is an expert in their field and are trusted and empowered to do their job the way they see fit. There's no "Junior" at EE, which means you're working with people who really know what they're doing. - Because of the above, there's no need for Line Managers, you're trusted to do your job to the best of your ability. - Even if you leave you can still remain "in the network" to keep in the loop about future projects etc. - There's a drive to ensure that projects are teams of EE consultants where possible, so its not a "bums on seats" kind of consultancy. - Salary is fairly competitive as consultancies go - The client is almost always the most strict about e.g. Dress Code, Working from home. As far as EE is concerned, you're an adult so you get to decide what works for you (within reason). - It's pretty easy to move projects, and its encouraged every 9 months or so. All opportunities are made visible.

    Cons

    The project selection is a little limited in certain parts of the UK, but it's quickly improving They don't hire many permanent staff which is a shame, there's plenty of talented people out there who don't necessarily want to be contractors
