    Pros

    I feel like the work I do makes a valuable difference to my clients. I also love the people I work with - it’s fun, respectful and highly charged.

    Cons

    There’s no doubt that the travel and being away on client sites is a pain at times, but personally I like the variety of people and places.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lose our focus on people and genuine value add with our client’s. Keep us different to other consultancies.

    Pros

    Great team work culture, fun events and a leadership team that's really interested in its people. Great training and development.

    Cons

    Long hours and does not pay as much as other consultancies for more senior role. Salaries are shown as packages which can be difficult to interpret.

    Pros

    Personal develoment- this is always a focus on every project and the work is challenging.

    Transparency and openness - compared to other companies of this size, Newton is unusually open with why decisions are made, and is good at seeking out and responding to feedback.

    The vast majority of people are fun and importantly care about each other- all the way from consultant to back office to director.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity - good efforts are being made to improve this in recruitment. However once within the company, people who fit a certain personality mould tend to be celebrated more than others, and there is a subtle pressure to act / think in that mould.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue focusing on diversity even after people have joined the company- we will be a poorer place if we don't act on this and end up with talented people finding other places to work.

    Pros

    We love Newton.

    Newton gives you access to world-beating clients and their board-level issues, in more depth than most direct employees would ever see. You'll be expected to assess, design and - most importantly - deliver improvements equivalent to millions of pounds on the bottom-line of FTSE100 businesses, and all within a few months of joining. Whether it's building warships, banking, producing food or running an operating theatre you'll be able to get stuck in and help our clients deliver what they do best, better.

    At Newton you'll be given independence and autonomy as soon as you want it, but with a strong support network around you all the way.

    Cons

    Make sure you know what to expect. Newton isn't like most consultancies - in that you will never work a weekend and there's a healthy respect for the work/life balance - but it is still hard work in the week. It's definitely not a 9 to 5 and won't suit you if that's what you're after. Late nights are very rare but expected when required, and you'll be away from home four nights a week.

    If you're joining as an Experienced Hire, make sure you speak with your recruiter about the Induction and Business Consultant roles to make sure you understand the role in full. Working at Newton is very different and very challenging, so you'll be expected to work in what's effectively a holding role for 12-18 months. This doesn't affect your benefits, but gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your capability at each level before you take on your hired role. It can be surprising for some Experienced Hires that you'll learn the business from the ground up just like a new Graduate would, so do make sure you ask and familiarise yourself first.

    Pros

    Variety and change as you do many projects across different sectors; challenging projects in a good way - always being stretched that little bit; morally rewarding work with public sector organisations making a real difference to the end users; good rewards package and great opportunities to develop professionally; strong focus on the social side of the company with lots of events to bring employees together; work expenses are all covered

    Cons

    Working away from home during the week; can be quite tough with longer hours when projects get busy
