    I have been working at Eames Consulting Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - outstanding brand in core markets - consultative approach - supportive leadership team - excellent infrastructure i.e. Marketing, HR, L&D, IT etc. - leading commission scheme for all levels - deliver on promises re promotion targets / career development - grown-up environment and intelligent use of analytics (not to be confused with pointless KPI-obsessed businesses)

    Cons

    - I've been lobbying for an office in Mauritius for a while now and it just doesn't get the attention it deserves....

    Advice to Management

    - keep looking to the future - keep developing the new generation of senior consultants and managers / leaders - keep investing in infrastructure (we're future-ready!) - never lose sight of the core values of the business

    Pros

    Strong Leadership team with key people playing in key positions, fantastic new head of contract with a vision to grow the contract team in the right way again playing people in their right positions. The culture within the past 12 months has flipped and now looking around the room it’s full of people that are really driven and want to be there. Hiring decisions are smarter with psychometric testing and in-depth competency...

    Cons

    I would like to see the local pub use the Eames branded beer more often.

    I have been working at Eames Consulting Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Having recently joined Eames after spending a good period of time in the market with competitors, I have been pleasantly surprised just how forward thinking Eames are as a business. A very clear structure is in place for progression, they invest massively in staff development. The L&D, Marketing and management team are very open and supportive. Regardless of level everyone is willing to help others. The platform...

    Cons

    Collaboration across all teams could be improved, however, this is definitely improving. A good amount of time and investment from all the management team across the business is focused on improving this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be visible and approachable, continue to listen and most importantly continue to deliver on your promises that you have done thus far.

    I worked at Eames Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have just recently left Eames to immigrate to Australia after spending the last 3 years at the business. They took me on as a grad, trained and promoted me up to Senior Consultant level and most importantly they helped me make a lot of money! While every manager and his/her team are different, Eames generally operates with a comprehensive set of principles across the board making it a welcoming yet slick and professional...

    They don't have an office in Australia! Happy to help them set this up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - listening to your staff and investing in the business

    I worked at Eames Consulting Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A handful of excellent SME remain but mainly on the permanent side

    Cons

    - Heavily KPI centric - an example would be not just the time you are on the phone but for how long - Politically charged environment - my experience has been it’s not who does well and drives revenue that is rewarded - it’s who is flavour of the month with the senior leadership team that is rewarded - Sinking ship - The contingent business especially the contract side is dying and has lost a huge number of their top...

    Advice to Management

    Instead of asking your remaining staff to load up positive reviews wouldn’t it be easier to recognise your failings - everyone that has left has given similar feedback - surely the brand that has been built deserves better. I look forward to the CEO responding with his usual lack of substance :)
