    Space to improve, but a great consultancy to work for

    Pros

    • Inclusive and friendly atmosphere. The recruiters are good at hiring nice people. • Pay is great. • No strict clocking in/out. You're trusted to get on with your work when it works for you (so long as you're making important meetings, or at least giving notice if not). • £1k pot of money you can put toward benefits or simply take in cash. Everyone also gets private health insurance. • Strong onboarding process, especially useful for juniors. Three-week intro that gives you a chance to meet people joining at the same time, and gives you a good overview of the company and what it offers. • Good diversity of class, gender, race for a tech company. Not a well-off white boys' club. • Opportunities for training through the internal Academy, and allocation of days each year you can dedicate to training. • Get the sense that C-suite really do feel dedicated to their 'vision' and making the company a pleasant place to work. • Work-life balance is generally good, people are clear they don't expect overtime from one another. • Club system is good, allows a level of autonomy in the way each office wants to operate and which clients they wish to take on (these differences between clubs could account for some of the differences between good and bad reviews you'll see on here). • Company is growing quickly, and new offices will be opening across UK and Europe in the mid-term (e.g. Liverpool, Barcelona). • Quick growth means plenty of opportunities for progression. • Focus on upskilling client-side people makes AND's offering genuinely different to most other consultancies. • If you object to working on clients for moral reasons (e.g. gambling, fast fashion) you can make it known and not have to stress too hard about it harming your career. • Feedback culture, with lots of opportunities to raise concerns or suggestions for improvement within club and company more widely. • At least on most client projects, no pressure as of yet to return to the office.

    Cons

    • Can be shunted onto client projects you're not interested in, in a role you don't want to be in. You've got input on this, but when push comes to shove they can sometimes put pressure on. There's consultancy for you. • They generally make a decent effort, but I've been in one or two positions where the team wasn't well supported by management, left to fend for ourselves in difficult client environments (pressure to deliver, put in overtime). • Good isn't enough. If you want positive reviews, expect to do extracurriculars. If you're busy with client work, don't expect a clear answer on when you should be doing these extra activities either. • Progression system is a bit strange, put a slideshow together which club seniors then review in your absence. People you've never directly worked with get a big say on whether you're moved up. Some people like this system, some hate it. • No bonuses (though in fairness, base pay is already high, and there is a share scheme if you're interested in that). • Some of the 121s and career coaching rigmarole can sometimes feel like it's getting in the way of doing your work. • There's office politics to deal with, like every other office. • If you're sensitive to it, the cheesy brand language might grate on you.

    Big company with small company feeling

    Pros

    Has all the benefits of a small company, like people, having a say on process, a big everyone get involved and everyone has a say. Very startup if your BU is new. One of the best consultancies I've worked for. Blended working, meaning we can wfh more often if need be. Projects are all in your local city that you are based out of, no travel required. Amazing people with lots of diversity, in thought, in race, in types of people! Lots of cool projects to work on Great Mat Pay (12weeks full pay, 24 weeks half pay, 10 kit days, 33 days annual leave - can get nearly the full year off with some form of salary)

    Cons

    Being a "small" consultancy means you may not always get the role you'd like. However, it does mean you have a bigger say if you want to or not go on to it and when you'd like to roll off.
