    Pros

    - Great culture - Career support and guidance - Continual learning experience - Lots of self guided learning

    Cons

    - Often hard to feel like part of the company once on Client Site. - Depending on background, some aspects of the training program are occasionally not given enough time.

    I worked at Kubrick Group full-time

    Pros

    Good Training provided. Very Broad.

    Cons

    The usual. Training could be more specific and less broad. But you learn loads in a short period

    I have been working at Kubrick Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Friendly culture from day 1. Everyone is approachable and you can message anyone across Kubrick. - Excellent training, Although it is intense because every week or two you dive deep into a different topic, it is very valuable at the end when everything comes together. -Scrum team groups encourage you to learn from each other and learn how to collaborate over different projects. You have your team to count on to message when you have questions and have a nice discussion. -You get paid while you are trained in skills that are highly demanded in the current market. -Webinars on different topics that you may find interesting and it is an opportunity to learn more about! - Huge career opportunities to work with blue-chip clients! They value the skills you will develop while training as they are limited out there.

    Cons

    - The potential of relocating but lets be honest, this is clear from the start. All consultancies require their employees to be flexible to travel but the value of the experience is much greater! Kubrick is transparent with this issue throughout the application process. - Some trainers may rush to get through the content and not much time is given for the trainee to digest the content but you can always message the trainer asking to slow down or explaining some concepts again. They are always willing to help you out !!

    I have been working at Kubrick Group full-time

    Pros

    - The training programs are extensive and hugely valuable, and trainers are very engaging and helpful - Wide variety of streams to pursue, each of which specialise in different areas - Client base is fantastic - huge variety of industries and some very exciting opportunities - good support network throughout your time on client site

    Cons

    - Little say in which client you go to when you finish training. It is mostly based off strategic demand - Your performance in training doesn't influence how quickly you get placed, just the client itself, so you may be waiting a while for Kubrick to find a role which meets your skillset. - The training is quite intense, and requires a lot of hard work and discipline, but very rewarding if you put the work in - You must stay with the company for at least 2 years once training is finished

    Pros

    Supportive client managers Good reputation with client Paid training Excellent 4-month training program Regularly touch base while on site

    Cons

    Not certain that you'll get a client you like. If you're not willing to stick that out for 2 years it's not for you

    Pros

    Could be a good step up into the industry... but it's a waiting game.

    Cons

    Told only 1 or 2 members of the cohort would be on the bench after the training. In reality 11/24 of mine was, 22/26 of the next stream to end was. 4 weeks on 7 of us still on the bench. The next DE cohort are being placed before us even though they still have 5 weeks of training.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and I am sorry to hear you are still waiting to be placed. Although we aim to assign consultants to clients by the end of training, this is not always possible for numerous reasons. If you are on the bench, we ensure you are assigned internal projects which allow you to apply your newly-acquired skillset. We also encourage ongoing development at every opportunity so it should not be seen as a waiting game, but rather a chance to build your skills and understanding before you embark on your first assignment. In terms of the order of placement, we match consultants against the roles we deem most suitable, meaning there are occasions where some consultants may be placed before others. If you haven't already done so, I strongly encourage you to contact our Head of Readiness, or Data Lab Coordinator for more information on this. Alternatively, please feel free to utilise one of our many feedback channels or speak to another member of the People Team at any point. Thanks
