    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Newton has an amazing story of growth - built on the quality of people we've hired and the quality of what we deliver to our clients. We continue to break into new markets and impress new clients and thus the sales forecast is very strong.
    People within the business have a strong attachment to it and demand better from every function and project - as such we are continually improving what we do and there is a strong sense of ownership and responsibility.

    Cons

    Everyone at Newton is so committed to the growth and success of the business it creates quite a culture of hard work and success. It's matched by a strong play hard culture too and personal time is respected, but it probably isn't the company for someone who wants a 9-5 with little pressure.
    Newton can be a challenging environment to join when you join as an experienced professional. It's becoming better as we grow, but the initial shock of joining a company with such a strong culture and beliefs can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on maintaining the bits of our culture which make us special while encouraging diversity to keep us evolving.

    I worked at Newton Europe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting methodology, though it’s nothing special.
    Some (not many) really great people there.

    Cons

    Backstabbing, cult like culture.
    Unless you confirm to the mould you’ll be managed out the business, nothing to do with performance. It’s interesting to see many who don’t contribute ideas that manage to thrive.
    Avoid at all costs, join a real company where managers think about more than themselves.
    A complete lack of understanding as to their assets (people) and a very outdated methodology with no capability to modernise.
    Feedback is often used to destroy confidence and ensure compliance, rarely to do with job performance.

    Advice to Management

    Way too many ADs and drop the terrible culture.

    The people are some of the brightest, most driven, nicest people you will ever meet. They are always pushing the envelope of what is possible and form amazing client relationships as a result

    You do have to spend significant time away from home during the week, but it’s made up for by having clear weekends.

    I worked at Newton Europe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of focus on professional and personal growth/development
    Great responsibility early on
    Good salary package/everything paid for during the week bar lunch

    Cons

    Very little diversity
    Feels like a cult
    If you're not part of the cult-like behaviour, can be uncomfortable
    Not many empathetic people considering the type of work, although this is receiving more attention
    People can be very arrogant
    Work away from home during the week

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on diversity
    Put KPIs on well-being that actually matter and have impact

    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.

    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.
