    Pros

    Benefits, variety of work, clever people, company provides a lot of training and social events

    Cons

    Can be a little off on the work life balance at times, but does depend on project... Key projects are more demanding but also great for building your profile too, getting the right balance is down to the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Promote me, lol

    Pros

    fantastic people - clever and intelligent. Good benefits, great technology and innovation. you can work from home in most roles.

    Cons

    not paid well enough for the job you do - ie sign over your life.
    told that if you are not happy with pay - you can live, because we want people that work for the brand.
    promotions opportunities are just not there anymore - used to be a great place to advance your career, now it's a fight to the top - everybody wants it. Training is mostly in house, cut back on costs massively. not a selling point anymore.

    Advice to Management

    think of your people as assets - pay them well - you are making so much money - share with your staff. invest in training - this used to be a great benefit.

    Pros

    • Excellent career choice for graduates but beyond those early years it becomes a hard slog
    • Great opportunities to work across projects and industries picking up different skill sets
    • You are always given opportunities to step up to the next role/grade.
    • Working with some very talented people

    Cons

    • No work/life balance!!! - very long working hours are the norm
    • Performance management system is unclear and often comes across unfair
    • Project timelines are often unrealistic and poorly managed

    Advice to Management

    One of your core values is 'Respect the Individual' - but non-consultancy staff are seen as just a number with a pound sign over their heads and nothing more. Treat staff with some respect and allow them to steer their careers in the direction they want.
