    Keep listening to your employees!

    I have been working at CIL Management Consultants full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - The office is incredibly friendly and welcoming - everyone knows everyone. - (For the Frome office) a very unique opportunity to have a city-style job in the countryside. -Transparent pay and promotion structure. -Friday evening and weekends are protected. -Very minimal travel compared to other consultancies.

    Cons

    -Working hours can be long and unpredictable (but this is typical of consultancy).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Careful not to lose the workplace culture as the company expands.

    I have been working at CIL Management Consultants full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Frequently changing and varied project work in interesting industries Great people and socials Good training and development opportunities Responsibility from day 1 Company focus on organic growth and internal promotion Supportive culture

    Cons

    Hours can be unpredictable and long (but inline with the rest of this part of the consulting industry) Can be hard to dictate your working hours and maintain a social life towards the end of projects when very junior (to be expected and senior colleagues have said this gets more manageable with time) As an analyst you spend a lot of time doing cold calling programmes - it is a rite of passage and doesn't last... forever though

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and don't let our amazing culture fade away as we scale up.
