I have been working at PA Consulting Group full-time (More than 5 years)
Exciting projects shaping future technologies, products and business models. Entrepreneurial and network based organisation. Brilliant people, often world class. The global technology centre is truly unique - we really create unique inventions shaping entire industries, develop and build world first devices and machines.
Innovation culture concentrated in one area of the business, suboptimal travel policy for international flights, relatively low salaries, relatively unknown brand. Uncertainty for future developments and strategy.
Advice to Management
Truly integrate technology and innovation cross all services and sectors. This is a key differentiator which could be developed and used more across the company. Reduce the amount and increase the quality of the internal change initiatives. Clarify future strategy and direction.
I applied online. I interviewed at PA Consulting Group (London, England) in August 2017.
Initial informal chat with HR followed by an assessment day, consisting of a one-on-one case study, an interview and a group exercise.
The case study was fun to take part in and they had sent the information through before the actual day, so it was fairly easy to talk through and expand upon.
The individual interview was slightly strange as the interviewer talked more about the team's working behaviour, rather than asking questions about my experience etc. When questions were asked, they were unclear and asked in a flippant and uninterested manner. "I have to ask you x now". Also got candidate information mixed up.
Group exercise was pretty hard with some tough on-the-spot questions, digging into what we had missed etc.
People seem friendly and laid-back, and there seems to be some really interesting projects going on.
I was struck by the lack of women on the interviewing side and throughout the organisation.
