    I worked at Vega Consulting Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked with interesting clever people (other Consultants) Some exciting assignments.

    Cons

    Track record of hiring then making consultants redundant while still hiring! VERY Bristol centric - see staff living in London or "not Bristol" as "difficult to place" on assignment. Ridiculous expectations of how much travelling a human can do on top of a working day. Treat staff as cash generating resources Attitude to staff of "You are lucky to have a job." No support or even contact with HQ for staff on long...

If you want to work with competent...

    Cons

    Growth in the business is perhaps slower than it might otherwise be as the firm only tends to employ experienced consultants generally not having many graduates. Whilst this can make it harder to form larger teams, it does tend to mean that quality and speed of delivery are top notch.

    Advice to Management

    Promote our capabilities more. In many ways this is a gem of firm that could do with increased marketing exposure. One of the UK's best kept secrets.
