I have been working at Newton Europe full-time

Pros

Personal develoment- this is always a focus on every project and the work is challenging.

Transparency and openness - compared to other companies of this size, Newton is unusually open with why decisions are made, and is good at seeking out and responding to feedback.

The vast majority of people are fun and importantly care about each other- all the way from consultant to back office to director.

Cons

Lack of diversity - good efforts are being made to improve this in recruitment. However once within the company, people who fit a certain personality mould tend to be celebrated more than others, and there is a subtle pressure to act / think in that mould.

Advice to Management

Please continue focusing on diversity even after people have joined the company- we will be a poorer place if we don't act on this and end up with talented people finding other places to work.

    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Variety and change as you do many projects across different sectors; challenging projects in a good way - always being stretched that little bit; morally rewarding work with public sector organisations making a real difference to the end users; good rewards package and great opportunities to develop professionally; strong focus on the social side of the company with lots of events to bring employees together; work expenses are all covered

    Cons

    Working away from home during the week; can be quite tough with longer hours when projects get busy

    Pros

    We love Newton.

    Newton gives you access to world-beating clients and their board-level issues, in more depth than most direct employees would ever see. You'll be expected to assess, design and - most importantly - deliver improvements equivalent to millions of pounds on the bottom-line of FTSE100 businesses, and all within a few months of joining. Whether it's building warships, banking, producing food or running an operating theatre you'll be able to get stuck in and help our clients deliver what they do best, better.

    At Newton you'll be given independence and autonomy as soon as you want it, but with a strong support network around you all the way.

    Cons

    Make sure you know what to expect. Newton isn't like most consultancies - in that you will never work a weekend and there's a healthy respect for the work/life balance - but it is still hard work in the week. It's definitely not a 9 to 5 and won't suit you if that's what you're after. Late nights are very rare but expected when required, and you'll be away from home four nights a week.

    If you're joining as an Experienced Hire, make sure you speak with your recruiter about the Induction and Business Consultant roles to make sure you understand the role in full. Working at Newton is very different and very challenging, so you'll be expected to work in what's effectively a holding role for 12-18 months. This doesn't affect your benefits, but gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your capability at each level before you take on your hired role. It can be surprising for some Experienced Hires that you'll learn the business from the ground up just like a new Graduate would, so do make sure you ask and familiarise yourself first.
