I worked at Coeo full-time (More than 3 years)
Coeo is a great place to work. It provides work that is challenging, but achievable in the timescales. A supportive network of very capable colleagues is always at hand to help if required. There's a great emphasis on personal development, and for those prepared to put the work in, the sky really is the limit here. There's a good social scene, the Christmas Party and Summer BBQ are great events for partners and families.
As a travelling consultant achieving a work/life balance can be a challenge depending on your personal location. Whilst Coeo do their best to help in this regard it is a challenge that all consultancy/professional services firms struggle with.
Advice to Management
Carry on as you are and I'm sure things will continue to be great at Coeo. Don't under estimate the burden that travelling adds to a consultancy role and where possible allow time for this as part of an engagement estimate.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Coeo (Reading, England) in August 2016.
First interview was a one and half hour phone interview with HR where we discussed the position, the company history, it's values and ethos, and the personal and technical qualities that would allow someone to succeed in the role. Honesty and openness was encouraged at all times. I was informed shortly afterwards that I had been put forward for a face-to-face interview.
The second interview was onsite at the Coeo office in Winnersh, with the head of Professional Development and Operations, and a Senior Architect. This consisted of approx. one hour of operational discussions and technical questions, followed by the delivery of a 15 minute presentation on a subject of my choice (I was advised that this would be the format well in advance so had time to prepare). Again, it was a frank and open discussion and the expectations of the role were clearly set. I received feedback on the same day as the second interview.
Everyone I spoke to throughout the whole process was super-friendly, courteous, and professional and I never felt disconnected from proceedings or under undue pressure at any point. All in all, the best interview experience I have had. I remember thinking that even if had I not been offered the positon, I would still have enjoyed the process.
