    Another consulting firm with the pros and cons of a big company

    Research Associate (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsOverall a good package although salaries are below average. Environement is the best, people is friendly and wanting to support. Flexible hours though always benefitting more the company. Interaction and possibility of transfer to other locations.

    ConsLoads of irrelevant training with litle time for it. Long working hours. Some senior staff are not so knowledgable. Tight deadlines, last minute rush and underbudgeted proposals that make you stress out uncessarily, I guess that more of the same that is out there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement can be improved, it should be taken by someone only focused on management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Highly complexed managerial style-AVOID

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsFriendly colleagues who naturally leave the company very soon

    ConsHighly complexed and inadequate management, nepotism, favouritism, no clear career path, LIES that are too obvious, little money, micro-managers, people who seem to be appointed in roles randomly, irrelevant training, substantial training not offered at all, unrealistic expectations since all the wrong choices are made

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes and ears to what employees say. When they leave a group massively there is always a good reason for this (inadequate manager anyone?)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
