Opportunities are what you make of them; AND offers people a lot of room to prove their worth and get compensated for it. I've been able to grow a lot at this company, partly through luck, but mostly through taking advantage of opportunities. Hybrid policy is mostly remote working and fits easily around your life
Generally led by personalities - if your Squad Lead doesn't like you, you might as well leave the company. Progressions are not as meritocratic as they should be. Struggles to attract very senior/skilled talent by overpaying associates and underpaying seniors e.g L5+. Most skilled engineers can command a much higher salary than they can here; most juniors will get a higher salary here than they will anywhere else. AND Consulting are opaque with unknown salary bands, along with all those in non-billable roles, making transparency something that is merely paid lip service to. The PA/PD split is actually quite moronic and doesn't do anything to respect market trends.2

Nice people and time to work together at the beginning.
Having many training sessions to meet their needs in the end you become a master of nothing and returning back to the job market you realize that you have to do a real upskilling to meet the real market needs and be able to work your desired job. I had to spend so much time after leaving AND to get proficient in the tech where I work as I could see how big the gap created by AND and the local London offices. There were also incredibly sneaky implemented feedback-based policies and PDL overlooks which could affect your work and mental health If they don't like you as they have hidden double standards. Much of the feedback is produced joust because of the progression or because you have to write any which makes it is not real. So if you have been tolerated by the management you can go to a project and progression can be given otherwise you will be blocked or kicked out by their internal mechanism which is built to manipulate the people and the process. Do not expect objectiveness and real support as there are multiple personal and company policy factors generated by the way that can make any process a farce. The leveling of the staff system is a joke in this company. I have met so many inexperienced high-level people to work with which can make you cry and run away as soon as you realize that you are actually in a pink trap.13

Nice offices, attractive hybrid working benefits. Clubs days/social budget WHEN they take place.
Not a great place to start your career as an associate- sometimes lack of clients can mean you’re sitting “on the bench” for a while with makeshift internal projects or working on in-house software which are pretty poor. Good progression opportunities every quaterly, but has turned in to a popularity contest- seems to be those who are wh*te/young men are getting the most opportunities. Distinct lack of diversity at practise group levels, especially with engineers. Those who can “talk the talk” rather than “walk the walk” at the most advantage as quality engineering work is not recognised most of the time and ends up with piles of more work! There are a lot of people in the practise groups/senior levels who haven’t put in the years of experience but still get promoted very quickly. Smaller clubs with less organic clients often at the mercy of other club’s clients and what they want. You can end up in the deep end working on a client without anyone from your club/squad on your team.25

There are a few real nice people within AND that are genuine, kind and want to help.
Please do not work for this company! I have worked for AND for a total of 3 years and so I have seen how AND has changed over the years for the worse. AND claim to be a "people-first" company, but in fact, are the complete opposite! 1) They have got rid of people who have worked for AND for under 2 years (and these are people who have no performance issues whatsoever! This is so those people do not have any employee rights to claim for unfair dismissal). AND do not have anymore money as a company and do not want to give out any more redundancy payments and make their redundancy numbers even higher (as they have already gone through a mass redundancy earlier this year). To decide to chuck employees out, especially during the cost of living crisis, is a real cruel move from this company! AND are really struggling financially as a company. Do not work here as your job is not as secure as they may make it seem! All of the things you are told in the interview that are good about the company are not true or have been taken away because of finances (training days and budget, club days, pay rises, cost of living payments) 2) Progression has turned into a popularity contest and favouritism is made very clear within AND. If you are not "popular" within your club, then you will most likely not be progressed. This results in people who become high-level, yet are inexperienced. Those who can “talk the talk” rather than “walk the walk” are at the most advantage as good, solid work is not recognised most of the time! The process of progression itself is awful. You have to prepare and perform a 10 minute presentation in front of senior staff, which again, seems to favour the "popular" and more confident employees. 3) No training/support for associate developers. They expect you "to get on with it" like the other higher leveled employees, and then if you are stuck on something, you get looked at badly. 4) AND has become very "clique-y". The cliques are made clear and they do not make you feel like you belong, meaning some people end up feeling lonely.3

- Really good onboarding - Good people-focused culture at the start - Multiple office locations - Good events - Learning opportunities
- The company decided to cut down on events and stop spending on people when it could not hit the financial goal - Some clubs have politics and favoritism at upper levels and squad leads1

Culture, nice new office, career progression is transparent and puts YOU the employee in control of the process. It's a lot of work to get promoted but if you are good at keeping track of what you have done, make good impressions and buddy up to the right people it's smooth. AND puts on a lot of workshops both for clients and internally, it's a great place if you are starting your career. There's a lot of learning opportunities and support. Very diverse company!!
Lack of client work, and redundancies. Some benefits have disappeared. Struggling to keep senior engineers. It was a good company when I joined but the situation is uncertain at best. If i was interviewing at this company I would definitely ask questions regarding how many employees are currently engaged on a client, how many clients do you currently have, and the likelihood for future work. If you detect any kind of wishy washy answers here then don't waste your time.12

Overall I am enjoying my time here. Colleagues are great and very smart, hence the vast amount of learning opportunities. Flexible and good benefits.
-Pay is lagging behind competitors -some perks have been paused temporarily

You get a huge variety, wearing multiple hats. Whilst deployed on client as a Tech Principal you can be acting in a senior capacity, interacting with C-suite. Internally you'll be operating as part of an Ops team, delivering initiatives, upskilling ANDis and driving the direction of the business and culture. A third hat you wear is cross-club. You can engage with others around AND positively benefitting your own club and the wider AND business. I just love the variety the role provides. Consultancy you are just a bum on a seat, not with AND. I enjoy being able to spread my wings and make my own impact on an engagement. I think fundamentally the AND Club business model is strong and there's huge potential.
Pay is lower than actual consulting despite being significantly more work. No bonuses. Unclear where to progress into senior roles when a Tech Principal apart from to a Practise Group Lead. Not enough technical ANDis in leadership roles. Unfortunately this results in Tech Principals and L5 Developers leaving so the attrition of senior Tech people is high within the business.3

Depending on which club you are, the culture will be different, I was in on of the Manchester clubs and the culture was brilliant. I’ve worked with such a great bunch of people, I’ve learnt a lot and I have been given the opportunity to progress during my 3 years I worked there. The redundancies really had an impact on the moral but I genuinely think AND will be able to get back on their feet and strive again.
After reaching lvl 6, I’ve felt like I’ve reached a ceiling and there wasn’t any room for me to progress further. I was placed on roles that were far below my capabilities and I grew truly bored, I wasn’t challenged anymore and it was hard for me to get motivated within the day to day workload. I felt like the client work wasn’t as good and it was clear that we were lacking quality and long term clients.2AND Digital Response4mo
Thanks for taking the time to write a review - we really appreciate it and the feedback. There's a team developing a clear career pathway for our Level 6 ANDis, which aims to keep our senior people engaged and able to continue to develop at AND.
