Featured Review

Current Employee - Principal Consultant

I have been working at Newton Europe full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Newton's work is everything I hoped it would be: not your typical consulting, guaranteed to make a difference, very hard work but very worth it. I've worked in many companies before Newton and -... whilst we definitely don't get it right every time - I've never worked in a company that tries harder and faster to improve. Don't kid yourself, this isn't a 9-5 and it is intense. In my mind it should be, you're well paid and on the hook for real, measurable improvement. Having been a consulting 'client' before, this can-do and high-energy attitude is what makes the difference. A role in consulting (anywhere) isn't likely to suit you if you need to be at home a lot or can't commit to the job, but it's worth it if you can make it work. Some of the more challenging reviews on here mention struggles with wellbeing, mental health and support from the business. I really feel for anyone that hasn't felt supported. Personally, I've never worked in a company with a better focus on health, well-being and employee engagement. Clearly this relies on the individuals involved, and we don't get it right every time, but don't be dissuaded. I've gone from an annual development review (if I was lucky), to feedback and development every week. This won't be right for everyone, but if you want to progress quickly I can't think of anything better.

Cons

Inevitably the travel away from home and the hours are the major downsides. Expect to be away from home from 6am on a Monday to 6pm on a Friday until you're more senior. This is important so we can... be onsite with our clients - we can't do what we do from a head office or from home. That being said, with COVID we're looking at this and how we can learn from having to work from home. We're also still definitely working on our diversity and inclusion - but making huge strides. Coming from engineering companies our gender balance is SO much better, but we have a way to go to be as diverse as we can be. There's lots of focus on this, a lot of very passionate people, and a real honesty about the problem and solutions.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! Keep up the focuses on development, wellbeing and diversity, and it would be great to learn what we can from COVID about improving our work/life balance.

Current Employee - Business Leader

I have been working at Quick Release full-time

Pros

Small enough that you can have decently meaningful impacts that shape how things are done while relatively young / junior compared to bigger name alternatives. Genuinely a leader in the PDM field..., and acknowledged as such by other companies and industry bodies (always nice to hear!) Opportunities for travel, both regional and international - fun to see different teams and clients in their cultural contexts, good on the CV and you can usually add a few days for yourself. Very supportive and approachable team - both at practitioner and senior management level - if you want / need something and make a reasoned case for it, the chances are it will be approved or arrangements made. Minor queries are usually addressed in mins rather than hours.

Cons

Things are run lean, so there's a lot of non-core work to plough through, all taking time. Pay and benefits are fair but not industry leading - a question of personal priorities against the pros... above.
