    Main advice would be to reimburse employees sufficiently to lower attrition.

    Pros

    Collaborative, non hierarchical, friendly, entrepreneurial, challenges. If you are up for a challenge you can find it - you own your own career direction. Great set of values

    Cons

    The communications system could be a lot better and branding could be a lot stronger outside France. I would change the Mobile serivce provider. Offices are OK, but a bit bland.

    Current Employee - Managing Consultant in London, England

    Pros

    around average market par rates. however you have to offset this against the volume of hours you will put in which pulls your hourly rate down. they have a training university which is good but don't expect to attend as most training is online to be done in your own time. average office spaces.

    Cons

    terrible top tier management. only focussed on billable time. no consideration for needs of parents but specifically fathers. underhand in everything they do. no training generally, learn if you can in your own time. expect pressure to do lots of free hours and burn travelling time. if your managing, expect to have mostly onshored and inexperienced cheap staff working for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a life, start being honest. put yourself in others shoes. have some integrity. grow some balls.

    Pros

    Genuinely collaborative environment usually (depending on placement).

    Cons

    No development or promotion once you become senior for technical positions. Sub par compensation, minimal raises, promotion extremely hard to attain once you reach a certain level. The only training that is remotely encouraged is training directly relevant to your current engagement - no concept of developing the human resources in the company (except for junior roles)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start rewarding achievement and ability rather than a box-ticking "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" review system.
