      Learn a lot, fast paced, development focus - can be exhausting

      Pros

      Massive focus on personal development (you are the product) - people generally promoted every few years, and little room to sit still. Deliver real operational benefit - we are expensive, but we are great value for money based on tangible savings. The work we do is also the right work, focus on where data shows are the biggest barriers, and not short term cost cutting Newton puts a lot of effort into recruiting people who are likeable who you would generally want to work with Company gives you a platform to go and change what you want - you just need the evidence to support it and bring people on the journey Company has gotten far more decisive around emerging issues (not just well intended words)- e.g. dangerous driving, inclusiveness and diversity,

      Cons

      If you aren't focused on career progression (even as a side product of developing yourself) - then it's probably not the right job for you. If you have been doing a role longer than 2 years and not pushed for promotion, you will probably need to leave the business. Senior leadership has largely been grown within the business (they joined as one of the first grads e.g.) who are generally incredible at delivering amazing programmes with real benefit, but may not have the best management/ empathy skills with their internal team.

      Pros

      Massive focus on personal development. Really fun. Values your opinions & recognises hard work.

      Cons

      Travelling constantly can take its toll, but it's to be expected in an on-site consultancy. Luckily the people and ethos really helps makes this the least bad it can be!!

      Pros

      Personal Development Energy Growth Impact Teamwork No limit on the number of promotions - so no internal competition for places Fun No weekend working (really) Impressive clients Share options for senior team A great place to learn A career accelerator

      Cons

      All consuming - flat out from 5:30am on a Monday until 6pm on a Friday every week. This could obviously be seen as a strength too! A strong culture for people with previous experience to join - it definitely can and has worked, but it takes time (years) and commitment to see it through Diversity - although there’s been a recent recognition of this and is beginning to change

      Incredible company, amazing people, outstanding culture and the job provides interesting challenges

      Pros

      The people are fantastic, there is a real buzz within Newton and I have made a number of true friends, not just colleagues. Newton is a true meritocracy, this allows you to progress as quickly as you can. Expect to take on responsibility early both in terms of leading your own parts of a project and internal Newton work, if you enjoy feeling outside of your comfort zone all then you won't be disappointed. There is a genuine focus on developing people which is backed up by high quality, extensive training and a strong support network aimed at maximising everyone's personal development.

      Cons

      You need to be prepared to work away from home, Monday to Friday every week. This is something that I enjoy but tends to be the thing that people find the biggest challenge. To help with this Newton enforces a 'home by 6pm on a Friday' and not working on weekends policy, this means that you can plan for and make the most out of your weekends!

      Amazing Experience

      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

      Joining Newton with 12 years previous experience

      Pros

      The personal development opportunities are exceptional for graduates and experienced hires. I joined with 12 years of experience within a high volume manufacturing company. After getting to grips with Newton methodologies and the business in general, I was able to combine my new found knowledge with previous capabilities and know how to accelerate on to Associate Director in just over 5 years.

      Cons

      Managing your work life balance takes effort. Being mobile means that you are away from home and you need to plan your home life more rigorously than in other jobs

      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.
