    I have been working at NTT DATA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great community feeling, colleagues are encouraging and feel like a team not competition
    - The opportunity to work with well know clients on varied and interesting projects
    - Flat hierarchy means senior leaders on projects and within the company are easy to access
    - There is a good emphasis on training through internal communities but also opportunities to take part in external training
    - Compared with other consultancies there is less focus on utilisation and more opportunities to try new roles, projects and ways of working

    Cons

    - NTT is not a known brand in the UK (However we still work with big household name clients)
    - Currently only one promotion cycle per year which is less than other consultancies

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the great culture and community is maintained/improved as the company expands

    Great colleagues and very helpful. The company is driven to do the best for its customers and supports the growth of its employees

    Cons

    Small footprint in the UK so not everyone knows about them but its growing!

    Pros

    Great company to work for, focused on people and on continuous improvement. Genuinely care about staff. CEO has fantastic growth agenda, which opens up huge career opportunities for those with an entrepreneurial spirit. Long term view, innovation and quality are at the core of the company values.

    Cons

    Brand needs to be more present in the market. Also needs to integrate its subsidiaries and sister companies faster, to leverage synergies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great people. Even if client is not great you still get to work with brilliant people.

    People are generally helpful & willing to spare time for peer reviews and collaborations. This is tangible in the quality of work delivered.

    For younger profiles a good opportunity to try a number of very different things before they start to specialise.

    Internal collaboration not imposed. Very much volunteer-based.

    Flat structure. Client manager level very approachable.

    Great office location in London.

    Cons

    No brand recognition so experience difficult to sell.

    Difficult to find areas of specialisation as people develop. As the company in the UK grows I hope there are opportunities for focus and specialisation.

    Global brand misaligned with the consultative approach existing in the UK business.

    Travel arrangements don't compensate for extra hours of traveling effort. This is sub-standard in the industry.

    Minimal choice of international placements or secondments.

    Pension plan less generous than industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the cons are known and have an action plan against them. So keep up that good work!

    Pros

    The people: international, engaged, friendly
    The work: varied, topical, interesting
    The environment: supportive and encouraging
    The business: ambitious, growing, entrepreneurial

    Cons

    The brand: needs work - dated for a company looking at the future, not well known outside of telco industry
    Unity: existing NTT DATA UK businesses need to be better integrated and aligned internally, and NTT partner companies better leveraged
    Operations: need to invest in internal support, process and tech to make it easier for staff to focus on client work

    Advice to Management

    Big improvements recently. Keep going and invest in the foundations now to realise what could well become a big success story in the consulting sector

    Cons

    Still relatively new in the UK, so some work to be done on internal processes and benefits package
    Brand not very well known (yet)
    Similar to other consultancies, can be difficult to maintain work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    We are definitely heading in a good direction, so keep it up!

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great working environment
    - Respectful people

    Cons

    - Operation team is disrespectful and dodgy, that is including recruiting, HR and IT support

    Advice to Management

    Change the whole operation structure and replace all fo your HR person.

    HR laid off a whole department via PowerPoint Slides, while the CEO claimed there will be no change or people dismissed during the restructuring.
