Does TTP offer parental leave?

Pros

It's a great place to work for technical people who enjoy variety and challenge and who're also interested in business. In my view it's the people make the place: smart colleagues and a collaborative culture mean it's possible to achieve a lot in a short period of time - and to have fun doing it. You're also trusted to make decisions and get on with things.

Cons

Hours can be long on occasion - but not unreasonably so. Maternity / paternity provisions were quite limited until recently, but this is now being addressed with a flexible return-to-work scheme.

Advice to Management

Maintain the unique culture while continuing to modernise the business.

How are the career development opportunities at TTP?

Pros

Good place for early career stage, awful afterwards

Cons

Nature has taken over TTPs ‘flat’ structure and a non-spoken pecking order prevails. The culture is very manipulative, and the longer you work for them, the more you feel it, or worse you may start behaving like that, not even noticing how manipulative you may become. TTP rewards only commercial success, if your passion is truly technical TTP will chew you and spit your bones out, without a word of thank you. If on the other hand your interests are commercial, beware you are up against the least collaborative culture you may ever find. Only hero’s may apply. Diversity is taboo in TTP, a white oxbridge male workforce dominated the company and its decisions. If you fit this description you may find a place. Culture was not friendly to women, and there was no diversity in the workforce. Don’t expect reasonable working hours, or acknowledgement of overtime.

How are senior leaders perceived at TTP?

Pros

There is a density of very high talent like in no other place, and with that comes an equally unusual level of autonomy and responsibility for individuals who pass the high bar set at the interviews. The company culture, reflected on consultants' freedom, employee ownership and relatively freeform team structure is phenomenal, something I'd highly recommend experiencing first-hand. Projects are at cutting-edge both technology-wise and in terms of impact to society. The CEO and group leaders are very approachable and admiringly wise.

Cons

Career development is very much self-driven, which is something I personally had to adjust to. There has been a historical scepticism about externally-provided training courses which doesn't deliver to certain types of learning styles. On the other hand, a newly empowered professional development team has its eyes on this issue already. There are also extensive opportunities to learn by doing. The company culture and colleagues are very supportive of this approach.
