Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at PA Consulting Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Exciting projects shaping future technologies, products and business models. Entrepreneurial and network based organisation. Brilliant people, often world class. The global technology centre is truly unique - we really create unique inventions shaping entire industries, develop and build world first devices and machines.

Cons

Innovation culture concentrated in one area of the business, suboptimal travel policy for international flights, relatively low salaries, relatively unknown brand. Uncertainty for future developments and strategy.

Advice to Management

Truly integrate technology and innovation cross all services and sectors. This is a key differentiator which could be developed and used more across the company. Reduce the amount and increase the quality of the internal change initiatives. Clarify future strategy and direction.

    I worked at PA Consulting Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, central London location, variety of tasks worked on, opportunity to visit client sites, opportunity to work at Technology Centre.

    Cons

    Poor organisation before arrival, lack of information about working offsite (had to spend a lot of time in a different city), lack of information as to what the service line actually does.

    Advice to Management

    Plan intern's arrival and initial activities well in advance.
