What is the company culture like at Plural Strategy?

Pros

- Fantastic vibrant, supportive and entrepreneurial culture which creates a great learning environment. The culture has been maintained as the company grows rapidly in size, reputation and diversity, and as it implements more structured HR / recruitment processes - Lots of early responsibility – invaluable early exposure to partners / senior project managers who are industry experts + genuine drive for juniors to get client exposure - Highly intelligent, motivated and approachable team at all levels who really push you and challenge your thinking regularly - The nature of Plural’s focus industries (B2B media, information and marketing agencies) give you indirect exposure to several different industries (e.g. CDD on a news subscription product for companies in the gaming industry) - Rapidly developing a reputation as the leading consultancy in its focus industries – a great journey to be a part of which you don’t get at larger consultancies - Great company away days, socials and off-site training - Recent move into a fantastic new office

Cons

- As with any strategy consultancy, long hours and tight deadlines on a regular basis should be expected - Plural’s fast growth means that projects can be sold before deciding if there is sufficient resource, which can add to the pressures of an already intense job for employees - Focus industries are mostly B2B and can feel tricky to relate to

Advice to Management

- Continue moving junior salaries closer to those at leading strategy consultancies - Keep the great culture and early responsibility as the company continues to grow

Fantastic vibrant, supportive and entrepreneurial culture which creates a great learning environment.

How was the interview at Plural Strategy?

Pros

Saying that working at Plural has been a fantastic experience is an understatement. I could not have asked for a better team and better leadership. Plural Strategy is a sector focused consulting firm that is growing rapidly. The sectors that Plural specializes in are events, media, industrials and agriculture. Not only are you able to gain exposure to these different industries, but you are constantly working with different team members and learning from Plural’s sector experts. The structure is very flat so you are able to get day to day exposure to senior team members who are actively working with you and are readily available. You truly get to learn from the best. I worked in the NYC office, an extremely fast growing office under the supervision of Matthew Vellacott, a partner based in NYC. Matt made it a point to be extremely available to all employees and personally invest himself in their growth. This is a HUGE benefit to working with Plural as their management makes sure to strongly invest in their employees/talent. Even as an entry level employee, I worked on several projects with Matt as my direct supervisor where he was able to pass along his years of expertise in different sectors. Matt and David Freling from the NYC team were not only my supervisors, but became mentors in my professional development. As mentioned in almost every review, Plural has an AMAZING culture. The team is extremely close knit and the management makes sure to host team-building events a few times a month which range from annual company getaway trips (last two years have been in Spain) all the way to having a Plural band. It’s crucial to have a strong work culture in consulting and Plural really puts an emphasis on that. It’s no secret that Plural has some extremely talented and brilliant people. While working at Plural, I was able to learn so much in such a short amount of time from the industry’s bests. Although the interview process is challenging, the internships and job offers are well worth it. Plural does a phenomenal job of hiring top-tier talent and developing them to become industry experts. Not only that, but the management constantly pushes you outside of your comfort zones. An example of this is during my first month of working with Plural, I was asked to lead a field research work-stream by flying down to a trade show. That entire week I was prepped to be able to conduct these in-person interviews myself. I was pushed outside of my comfort level and was able to successfully lead this portion of the project. To give some insight on the work interns and analysts should expect, most of Plural’s projects are DDs and strategy reports. Interns and analysts will be involved in work-streams such as market sizing, competitive landscaping, spearheading interview programs, conducting desk research on market dynamics, etc. I’d recommend Plural to anyone who is serious about being a strategy consultant. Not only do you learn so much in such a short amount of time, but you become a part of an amazing team that brings out the best in you!

Cons

Long hours typical to consulting. Interview process was challenging, but the internships/job opportunities are extremely rewarding.

Advice to Management

The management led by Jim Easton have been nothing short of excellent in how they interact with their employees. Keep doing what you’re doing!
