    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I'm in my second year at Newton, and I absolutely love it here. In brief, I think some of the biggest pros are: Amazing people - I've yet to meet anyone I couldn't get on with Fantastic personal and professional development Early responsibility Genuinely inspiring leadership Impactful work Great company culture Transparency of company-wide communication. I always feel like I know how we're doing and what the senior team's priorities are Feels like the organisation genuinely cares about everyone in it Never have to work weekends (more often than not, you'll actually be told off for it!) Everyone's opinion is genuinely valued Great pay - and everyone receives a share in the company profits I could genuinely go on indefinitely. I promise I'm not being paid to write this!

    Cons

    Because everyone's opinion is valued, it can sometimes take a bit longer to drive internal change (possible "too many cooks" issue). Social events can be a bit boozy, although as someone who doesn't drink I've not had any problems with feeling out of place etc. Although nobody works weekends, I appreciate that for consultants weekdays can be quite tough - so take a look at the lifestyle and make sure it's right for you. Not currently the most diverse company - but have made significant improvements in the last 2 years, and I'm confident that we're doing the right things to continue to improve.

    I worked at Newton Europe full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - great experience embedded with the clients - All colleagues are amazing, bright, intelligent, and nice - Company is transparent with their intentions for the business - You will develop quickly with feedback from peers, line manager, and a personal development manager

    Cons

    - Lifestyle isn't for everyone. You'll be gone Monday through Friday. But absolutely no work after 6 pm on Friday. They take that seriously. Unfortunately, that does mean late nights through the week. - Newton throws a good party, can get a bit wild at times - feedback is blunt. Sometimes you'll get conflicting feedback from multiple people. Learning to push back in a non-defensive constructive way is an important skill - your promotion will depend on the impression you give to the rest of the company. This means that the 95% that don't work with you have a large say in your growth

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Newton Europe full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    My colleagues were all incredibly talented people who were genuinely fun to work with. The recruitment process looks for strong social skills and that is clearly noticeable in the company culture. The work itself is diverse and you can get great responsibility early on by proving you can handle it. This isn't a job for people with just great chat or ideas, you actually need to be able to get results by working with people of all layers within the clients.

    Cons

    The lifestyle is full on. You are working away from home Monday to Friday, living in hotels. All is paid for and the company cars are great, but you will not be able to join social events at home during the week.

    Huge amount of responsibility from an early stage, real focus on personal development. Working on incredibly exciting and meaningful projects, surrounded by fun and supportive team

    Cons

    Lifestyle can be difficult but such is the nature of consulting. Newton do everything they can to support you and make it fun.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time for 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.

    Pros

    #1 - the people - everyone here is so smart and driven, and they're also amazing to have a laugh with #2 - the culture - there's a huge desire to grow, both personally and as a whole #3 - the variety - the range of sectors and roles is awesome

    Cons

    The lifestyle can get a little tough, having to be away from home during the week. This gets better as you get more senior, and to be honest I've never had to work on the week - I've been there 3 years now.

    Pros

    Amazing people and clients. People - There are not many companies where you can genuinely be inspired by and learn from all your colleagues. A huge amount of effort goes into selecting and developing the best people. Programme structures and financial incentivisation deliberately designed to create a sense of team work and access to support should this be required. Tangible and impressive culture. Client work - The scale of work Clients ask us to support them with grows in magnitude and importance every year. Having the opportunity to make massive change across all our sectors.

    Cons

    As expected lifestyle is more challenging in consulting roles. As you progress and become more senior this becomes more manageable. Change is constant - as the business grows it needs to re-invent part of itself every 18 months - not necessarily for everyone
