    Thanks for your review. As we grow we will undoubtedly experience issues and problems, but we have some excellent people who all want the success to continue. There will be up s and there will be downs but if we work together we will succeed.

    I have been working at NTT DATA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Breadth of work within Impact Consulting. The opportunity to continuously learn through a range of weekly webinars, learning and development sessions, we are also exposed to first hand industry leading research. The organisation has taken excellent care of employees during the current lock-down in the UK (still running appraisals and promotions). The people within Impact Consulting, who are team players, intelligent and motivated. I take pride in the cutting edge projects we work on particularly those that can make a difference in the healthcare sector and the public sector.

    Cons

    Consulting hours sometimes. However, I believe these can be much worse in other organisations and many people within the organisation really promote work life balance.

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get paid on a monthly basis. Easy access to a gentlemen’s club next to their new office.

    Cons

    Leadership and management are bullies and will lie to cover their own mistakes. Staff turnover is very high, if you survived 2 years congratulations as you haven’t been managed out yet or pushed out yet. Leadership has a report as to who has been in the company less than 2 years as a firing list, as you have no employment rights. Lots of positive reviews here are due to HR actively encouraging you how amazing the place is and that you should write a glassdoor review whilst you are within your probation period aka honeymoon period. Most people are looking to leave as the environment is toxic. If you are from an ethnic minority watch your back and be prepared to be fired or expect no promotions.

    Pros

    - Really intelligent people to work with, you learn a lot - Generally very friendly environment - Lovely offices - Reasonable pay - Flexible working

    Cons

    The environment and culture seems to have deteriorated over the past year or so. Can't quite put my finger on it but there have been a lot of changes and no real benefit can be seem from these changes. Some (emphasis on some) senior managers are truly awful, they can be nice one minute and completely hell the next so you just don't know when/how to approach them. This is a real shame because it has caused the organisation to lose its shine. Pay increase = next to nothing Lack of clarity over the work we actually have available. You're not allowed to network to get onto projects - this is "forbidden" so you are left waiting for Resourcing team to contact you when something comes up....whenever that may be. It generally ends up being "can you tidy up some slides" types of requests.

    Pros

    Good and smart people on the ground

    Cons

    It doesn't matter what you achieve or the value you bring to the company and its clients. You are only rewarded if you have the right internal connections. Total lack of transparency and clarity over the work available (if there is any). It's a total non-sense. You are penalised for being too much on the bench but you're not allowed to network to get onto projects - this is "forbidden" as only the resourcing team can decide for you ( it generally ends up being "can you tidy up some slides" types of requests).

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are nice offices, lots of good people work there at the more junior levels. Pay is average.

    Cons

    It used to be a good place to work but as a result of choosing to persue a strategy purely based on revenue growth it has lost its shine. Senior management is poor, projects are almost exclusively telco, there is no business consulting, just large IT transformation projects. It is all IT. People have been known to sit on the bench for months on end. Bullying by certain members of senior staff has led to people leaving the company. Everyone seems to know who the bad eggs are but senior management doesn't do anything about it? Jobs for the boys. Spending your life commuting hours a day to drab telco offices in places like Hook, Bracknall and Maidenhead. The only way to progress is to cosy up to the right people.
