    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Huge investment in personal development and the significant responsibility given early on allowing you to develop as fast as you can

     The company is a breath of fresh air to work for, constantly challenging you, each other and our clients

    People are not just colleagues but become close friends. The company culture fosters a fun atmosphere

    Great perks bespoke to Newton

    Cons

    We work on client-site, meaning we have to work hard and deliver value to the client. There is no room to coast along, but that is part of the excitement! The lifestyle, especially early in the career is away from home 4 nights a week, which may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Do not compromise on the quality of people being brought in despite the rapid growth.

    I worked at Newton Europe full-time

    Pros

    The people - the most enthusiastic and friendly team I've ever seen. The culture - the company spend alot of time and money taking care of you.

    Cons

    The lifestyle - whilst being on the road for the majority of your time might suit some people, it isn't for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on maintaining the culture as you grow. it would be a shame to hit 1000 people but have lost the culture.

    Pros

    Intelligent and motivated people to work with and a big focus on personal development. The responsibility you get early on in your career is unrivalled in the industry.

    Cons

    You work away from home most of the time, but the company makes sure that you don't leave too early on a Monday morning, and you're home by 6pm on a Friday.

    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A genuinely different consultancy proposition which means we deliver results
    Excellent personal growth
    Steep remuneration curve, equity stake at business manager and above
    Fun and challenging (in a good way) culture with many solid friendships made
    Rewarding work
    Meritocratic recruitment and promotions system

    Cons

    Delivering on client site necessitates being away from home, and though that lessens as you become more senior it never stops being a requirement to be away 2-4 nights per week

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever compromise on the calibre of those you're bringing in or the culture you drive

    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The number one pro is the work. Every project i have worked on (and now manage) push us and the client to do something exciting. I get a huge sense of satisfaction from seeing first hand the change that we create.

    The learning and development opportunities in Newton are simply brilliant. 4 years as an experienced hire and i am still on 'the edge of comfort', constantly pushing learning through innovative courses and learning on the job.

    A big pro is the quality of employees. Working with such a talented group, who challenge from top to bottom is hugely rewarding.

    The salary is good, i feel i get rewarded for my effort. Annual leave is generous.

    Cons

    The job requires you to be mobile, so personally i find the travel a bit much on occasion. That being said, i am making it work even with a baby in the family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the growth of the company and focus relentlessly on keeping the culture. The culture is what i found so attractive 4 years ago, and to date, we have maintained it even through doubling in size.

    Pros

    Work with and for oustanding people
    Rapid career progression
    Challenging work with good variety
    Supportive & fun culture

    Cons

    Lots of time away from home - this can be managed to an extent, and Newton are flexible, but it's tough to do the job without being on-site. Expect to be away 4 nights a week on average

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting people's development
    Maintain the entrepreneurial feel as we grow
    Keep the balance of sectors to make sure there is always variety of work
    Make sure salaries compete with those that compete for our people, not just those who compete with us for work

    Pros

    Positive
    Energetic
    Can-do attitute all over the place
    Smart people

    Cons

    Arrogant culture
    Very young group of consultants (could be a pro if you're young too - 20-24yrs)
    Drinking, drinking, drinking (again - could be a pro for some)
    Hotel lifestyle
    Very low pay - acceptable for interns

    Advice to Management

    Why not getting more experienced people in (30+ yrs of age) and doing even better.
