    Avantages

    Exciting projects shaping future technologies, products and business models. Entrepreneurial and network based organisation. Brilliant people, often world class. The global technology centre is truly unique - we really create unique inventions shaping entire industries, develop and build world first devices and machines.

    Inconvénients

    Innovation culture concentrated in one area of the business, suboptimal travel policy for international flights, relatively low salaries, relatively unknown brand. Uncertainty for future developments and strategy.

    Conseils à la direction

    Truly integrate technology and innovation cross all services and sectors. This is a key differentiator which could be developed and used more across the company. Reduce the amount and increase the quality of the internal change initiatives. Clarify future strategy and direction.

    Avantages

    Fantastically intelligent and interesting colleagues. Some really great Partners who could help shape the company to be fantastic

    Inconvénients

    Unfortunately, it is run by a sociopathic CEO who stays in the detail, never taking the strategic view and only looking to grow his own wealth. Therefore the company will never truly grow or move forwards. He has surrounded himself by ‘yes men’ and it truly is a disfunctional management team.
    Due to this, many parts of the company are not set up to meet peoples needs, bonus structure, shares and working practices.
    It is very ‘old school’ - spot the female at the top (there isn’t one), and diversity generally is a joke

    Conseils à la direction

    Disband the current team or delegate and trust others who have great worth.

    Je travaille chez PA Consulting Group à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    The people here are generally legitimate experts in their fields. At most levels the employees need to work collaboratively, so there is a collegial atmosphere. Also, there is a fair degree of autonomy, so it's possible to migrate to projects that one might find interesting.

    Inconvénients

    The "partner-as-business-unit" model creates a number of perverse incentives. Unlike law firms where billable hours are the target, here it's project profitability. As a result, there can be pressure not to bill hours, but to do the work anyway.

    Conseils à la direction

    Rethink the metrics that are used to judge people to capture the true costs of a project (and of selling a project!). Also, recognise that current incentives do not encourage employees to stretch to new (risky) business areas or to large projects for which extensive time may be spent on bids.

    J'ai travaillé chez PA Consulting Group en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    The people at PA are absolutely amazing and they are what make the firm what it is. Everyone is friendly and it is a pleasure to see everyone at work. There is agile working which is a massive pro as well. Great tech

    Inconvénients

    Management is not as great. It is difficult to move up within the company and a lot of people stay in the same role for a long time.

    J'ai travaillé chez PA Consulting Group en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    Some great people working on some interesting projects

    Inconvénients

    New ownership has led to a dogged race for growth and wealth generation at the expense of the staff
    Staff seem to be leaving in large numbers, but there seems to be no care for staff anymore, or it seems a desire to improve things (not even an exit interview on leaving)
    A number of legal threats on staff as they leave the door is generating a very bad impression of the company

    Conseils à la direction

    Focus on what made you great and what got you here - fantastic work and a reputation as a great place to work. All made possible by a vibrant, motivated workforce.

    Avantages

    Smart people who take time to help you develop.
    Interesting projects that will stretch your intellect.
    Great financial rewards for people that are results driven.

    Inconvénients

    To succeed you need to put your personal life on hold - work comes first.
    Nowhere to hide - produce poor quality work and you won't last long.
    Get ready to fight for every piece of business - it's a small company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Invest to grow - compared to other firms, the investment to develop new accounts and break open new doors is poor. There is massive potential out there but you have to fight harder to get access.

    J'ai travaillé chez PA Consulting Group en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    - People are great, you learn a lot from people who come from different backgrounds and how you can work together to succeed.

    - You learn the meaning of true patience when you have to jump through many hoops just go get one thing.

    - Some opportunities for training.

    - Great way to expose yourself to different sectors if you want to learn more about setting up your career path.

    Inconvénients

    - Not developer friendly, the IT systems there are dinosaur age systems. IT services treat you like a complete idiot and you are locked down to a system that you have to fight to get approval to do something. No administrator rights for a developer.

    - When a lot of people were leaving, management just mishandled the whole situation.

    - No exit interview, HR decided to send over a "survey monkey" form instead of taking initiative to organise a 1 on 1 interview.

    - You are given mediocre hardware, as well as when requesting a license for software, you have to send several emails just so management will say yes. (Even though we pride ourselves on innovation)

    - Mostly public sector jobs, if you get stuck in a certain public sector job, you're probably going to stay there until you hand in your resignation.

    - To get promoted you need to brown nose a lot and show off as possible, doing a good job and going over and beyond doesn't just cut it.

    - Company tends to play catch up instead of trying to lead.

    Conseils à la direction

    -Consider treating your employees as people and not the same way you treat a laptop.

    -In order to promote people look for the defining factors that make a person good, not just use a general framework.

    -When an employee asks for something, you just give it to them, not ask a million questions and try make their life hard.
