    Je travaille chez Baringa Partners à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Baringa has the best culture of any consulting firm I have worked for (out of 3). Leadership truly care about their people, and our current managing partner oozes this with every word and action that he says and does.
    Baringa recognises that the volume of travel and being away from home isn't something anyone really enjoys, and so it compensates employees on "out of town" projects both financially and with additional holidays. This is something I have never seen at any consultancy and one that sets Baringa apart and demonstrates how much they care about their people.
    Baringa has been the first consultancy to accept me for who I am, and I have watched its people do the same with many other new joiners. We strive hard not to simply hire in our own image and I feel we already have quite a diverse workforce, but never one to rest on our laurels we are still working hard to push the message of diversity across the company.
    Furthermore, Baringa is full of bright, passionate and smart people. We are not a corporate SI giant, and if you are tired of that life I would highly suggest Baringa is a step in the right direction to better work life balance, but just as interesting work.

    Inconvénients

    There are few downsides I have seen to working at Baringa. As with any consultancy, you do have to travel, and you do have to occasionally do a role that doesn't fit your skillset, but you can't ever avoid that in consulting.
    My biggest downside at the moment is that we have grown so much in the last year our home office in London is getting rather full on Friday's when most people come in, but it's manageable and we've been acquiring other space in an nearby building to help this.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep doing what you are doing. Adrian is a fantastic managing partner and I personally have never been more motivated by a leader. I believe that we can still maintain a "small boutique consulting firm" mentality even as we grow beyond that size if people hold true to the values that Baringa was built on.

    Je travaille chez Baringa Partners à plein temps

    Avantages

    There are a number of positives in working a Baringa:
    - some genuinely interesting and challenging client work
    - a good awareness of work/life balance within the consulting space
    - some of the best parties/company events
    - some genuinely awesome colleagues

    Inconvénients

    So, where is Baringa currently going wrong?
    - Geographic growth - the strategy to build successful businesses internationally for Baringa has to be a case book example for business schools on how not to do this. The current leadership has been remarkably poor at addressing these underperforming parts of the business and fixing the problems.
    - Diversity - Baringa needs to do so much more to embrace diversity in all it’s facets and not try and build a business where everyone is a clone of the current Senior Partners - there is lots of rhetoric in the firm about being 'diverse and building diversity' but the sad truth is Baringa only likes square pegs, so if you are a little bit round on the edges, it will be much much harder for you to develop your career. Baringa is losing so many great people because of this.
    - Compensation - Benefits are so-so - apart from the parties. To attract and keep great people Baringa needs to have a better overall package.
    - Leadership - Great leadership has high levels of self awareness, they recognise they are not perfect, they genuinely take on board feedback, they are receptive to constructive criticism. Even at Partner level I have heard that some Partners do not share their views due to a fear of not being seen to ‘tow the company line’.

    Mohamed Mansour understood all this when he helped crete Baringa - we could really do with some of that ethos again.

    Conseils à la direction

    Truly create the open culture you talk about and do not destroy an awesome company.

    Avantages

    From the first day I joined I felt welcomed and included into the Baringa family. I have never been made to feel at any point that I can't share my ideas, thoughts, and opinions, in fact, I have felt empowered and encouraged to do so. There is a genuine focus on people at Baringa; the Partners are truly accessible, the flat structure is apparent, and the culture makes coming in to work so easy!

    Inconvénients

    Office can sometimes feel too busy and cramped, particularly on Fridays!

    Conseils à la direction

    Maintain the people focus and flat structure especially as we continue to grow!

    Avantages

    Great coaching and development, people genuinely help when you need it (and know their stuff), and a massive focus on culture. I feel like I can be myself and not a ‘corporate version’.

    Inconvénients

    Coming from a big shiny firm, the office isn’t as high tech as I’m used too. However, i’d rather the partners spend the money on other things like the company holiday and training, than iPads on reception.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep the ratio of partners to Non-partners. We have great access to your experience and want to keep it that way.

    J'ai travaillé chez Baringa Partners en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Worked on projects with most of the key players in the market. Baringa well respected and trusted by clients.

    Inconvénients

    Work life balance is variable across teams. It is often up to the individual to push back and make sure they’re not overworked.

    Conseils à la direction

    Don’t hire those with relevant experience at a lower grades just because you can - it can leave new hires disenfranchised when they realise those at the same and higher grades have less experience.

    When projects don’t go to plan it can often be seen as an unavoidable part of the business. Would benefit in the company to try to learn more from these experiences.

    J'ai travaillé chez Baringa Partners en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Parties are fun but fast becoming unsustainable as the company grows
    - Most staff are approachable and friendly
    - Genuine focus on growing the company in the right way, with less focus on financial results than in companies with shareholders
    - Onboarding process is well organised
    - bonus is clear and on the generous side
    - Managing Partner is inspirational leader

    Inconvénients

    - Corporate dept is using out of date, very limited IT systems
    - Corporate employees are given hand me down, 4 year old laptops from consultants
    - All employees expected to fund their own mobile phones, apart from partners (who perversely are those who least need this perk)
    - Dominican Court office is crammed. Not enough meeting rooms, and Fridays are chaotic. Not enough desks
    - Lack of strategic planning in Corporate team
    - Partner ownership of Corporate functions is disfunctional with lack of time to properly engage and understand demands. No decisions can be made without Partner approval, who are always busy out working with clients

    Conseils à la direction

    - drop the spend on parties, and instead invest in decent systems and tools
    - stop treating Corporate team differently to the rest of the company
    - either drop the need for partners to lead Corporate teams, or ensure that they spend quality time instead
    - do you really need so many employees in HR and Recruitment, and so few in other teams?
