    I worked at Equal Experts for more than a year

    Pros

    Consultants are trusted to know what they are doing and given the authority & responsibility to just do it, without having to ask permission. The network is so supportive. You get to work with people who really know what they are doing and that challenge you to continuously improve.

    Cons

    Engagement managers & resource managers need to work together more closely to resource people onto projects and the communication back to those in the network needs to be much better.

    I worked at Equal Experts for more than a year

    Pros

    If you are a good developer you will love it, you are basically god. The senior team care, and they really want to deliver. The organisation works hard to work well with the client and with the contractors within their fold. There is a reasonably sustained focus on staying informed, connected and up to date and the organisation possesses a youthful passion. The rates are decent and, in London at least, you will end up working with your friends because the pool of people who can do tech consultancy to this level is very small. The company is very successful and it is nice to feel part of that. The model of not hiring people, but subcontracting to selected consultants is smart and successful and means they can roll teams in and out and change their size and focus very quickly. They actually are an agile Agile consultancy.

    Cons

    Equal Experts is growing very fast and as such some things fall through the gaps. The organisation thrives because it is very developer and technology-centric. However, there are downsides to this. They have not really figured out how to scale things for large deliveries. If you can, get in on a small project early on, that is when you will get the most from the relationship with Equal Experts as a contractor. They also have not quite figured out what to do with people on site who are not architects or developers, if you are a delivery manager, business analyst or QA then get a very good idea of the team you will be working on and the project/business area you will be committing to before you go in. Another downside of the scope that technologists are given is that if you are not one of "them" (and it really feels like that at times - which has never happened to me in contract before) you will have to suck up quite a few things that you fundamentally disagree with. There is very little scope for; relationship development directly with clients, feeding into strategy, flagging up risks that technological direction may have for medium to long term client business sustainability, or even basic problem solving - and for me it was a horribly disenfranchising experience. I found Equal Experts committed to being agile from a tactical, technical point of view but not from a strategic or wider business viewpoint. Basically, hell will freeze over before you can change anything.

    I have been working at Equal Experts for less than a year

    Pros

    - I get to work alongside a carefully vetted team of "equal experts", meaning we're all about getting the best solution delivered to the client, in a sustainable way. - EE admin is really light touch, and the support team genuinely cares about the delivery team at the client site. - Many opportunities to learn from highly skilled practitioners in their craft. - Further development and networking is supported through the EE Conference.

    Cons

    - Being focussed on the delivery of working software can lead to the broader issues of the clients' Agile transition being shared between the BAs and ScrumMasters.
