I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (More than a year)
I'm in my second year at Newton, and I absolutely love it here. In brief, I think some of the biggest pros are:
Amazing people - I've yet to meet anyone I couldn't get on with
Fantastic personal and professional development
Genuinely inspiring leadership
Great company culture
Transparency of company-wide communication. I always feel like I know how we're doing and what the senior team's priorities are
Feels like the organisation genuinely cares about everyone in it
Never have to work weekends (more often than not, you'll actually be told off for it!)
Everyone's opinion is genuinely valued
Great pay - and everyone receives a share in the company profits
I could genuinely go on indefinitely. I promise I'm not being paid to write this!
Because everyone's opinion is valued, it can sometimes take a bit longer to drive internal change (possible "too many cooks" issue).
Social events can be a bit boozy, although as someone who doesn't drink I've not had any problems with feeling out of place etc.
Although nobody works weekends, I appreciate that for consultants weekdays can be quite tough - so take a look at the lifestyle and make sure it's right for you.
Not currently the most diverse company - but have made significant improvements in the last 2 years, and I'm confident that we're doing the right things to continue to improve.
Advice to Management
We're growing at a fairly rapid rate, so I think it's key that we ensure that, as we grow, we don't lose the amazingly positive culture which makes Newton so special.
I applied online. I interviewed at Newton Europe.
Submitted the online form. Was then asked to do a numerical and data interpretation test, where time proved to be a challenge. Then prompted to fill an additional form, which questions like Why Newton. Finally was invited to a video interview with 3 questions.
Having a positive impact is at the core of everything we do at Newton. We strive to find solutions that improve the lives of the general public, be that through healthcare or everyday shopping trips. Imagine what the Newton you could do http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQoFm
