    Pros

    Good opportunities if you are proactive, especially if early on in career. Great access to Senior Membership, transparent leadership, good perks, social company, many things going on

    Cons

    Not too good at recognition/praise, personal development left to oneself, senior-level members have competing interests, Ops team under a lot of pressure,

    Advice to Management

    Focus on culture going forward and streamline the interests internally

  3. "A shiny apple with a bitter core"

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Concentra Analytics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Concentra had a lot to woo outside candidates- lovely modern offices with largely friendly and smart staff who were until recently largely quite excited by the future after a major round of funding. Despite the promising start at the business it has not delivered on its growth aspirations to date with Sales missing targets driving current cost pressures.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the business has struggled to grow beyond a certain point in the last year due to a host of reasons, perhaps most critically a real problem at the executive level in welcoming and encouraging diversity of thought. There is a remarkable level of arrogance across many in the top team that Concentra knows best on the development and go to market approach of its core product, OrgVue, despite the results in the market to date. Given the results it is very surprising that some of the top team who have consistently not hit their targets remain firmly in seat while so many others have gone. What is particularly sad recently is to see several individuals walked off the floor (from senior to junior talent) in a very heartless way that is out of step with any modern business.

    I was optimistic and excited when I joined the business, but now like to many others I’m sad to see what this has become largely due to gross mismanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Heed your own advice on org design and welcome different views. Truly listen to what the market needs and wants from you versus getting stuck in your own bubble of thought. Diversify the executive team.

    I worked at Concentra Analytics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pros are nice people, free breakfast, nice office

    Cons

    It's ironic that for a company that makes Org Design software that they can't even organise their own organisation properly! A lot of bad decisions have been made by management regarding the company structure recently, and they have not been hitting their sales targets. Advice to management would be: trust the people that you hire to do their job and stop with the politics. Lots of talented people have left because of the questionable decisions that have been made recently and if you are not careful more and more people will leave.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro-manage, and hire the right people with the right experience to do the role - you should know this as you make Org Design software! OrgVue has potential, but it remains to be seen whether customers will stick around and wait for it.

    Pros

    Feels like a family-run company
    Great opportunities for early career growth - if you know how to seize them for yourself
    You can set your own work-life balance
    Hires foreign workers

    Cons

    There are too many directors with competing visions for the company's future, so strategy is sometimes unclear

    There is a clear pecking order between operational teams and client-facing teams - operational teams have slower progression

    Gender balance is improving, but still questionable

    Advice to Management

    Focus on doing fewer things at a higher standard
