    Avantages

    Good expenses policy
    Fair amount of autonomy
    No "up or out" culture
    Good bonus
    Most people friendly and helpful

    Inconvénients

    Excessive travel - most work outside London but all social and community focus is mid-week and London focussed. Waste of time.
    Stagnant and uninspiring pipeline of work
    Most Partners useless - bonus mechanisms encourage self-preservation over the best interests of the firm
    Prohibitively expensive - you'll take home circa 10% of what you bill with Partners taking a large chunk of the rest
    Not innovative at all. They really advertise themselves as this but its utter nonsense.
    Limited account support beyond pressure to sell more work.
    Lots of internal work - you'll lose lots of weekends and evenings to pointless internal work. If you do it, no one cares - but if you don't do it, youll get criticised and financially penalised at bonus time.
    Strategy changes every year - Partners just squabble about CEO driven changes for a year before anything actually happens - and by then, another strategy gets wheeled out.

    Conseils à la direction

    Remove Partners from the internal roles of driving forward PA's strategy. They have a vested financial interest in the status quo rather than embracing potentially disruptive change. Get them out of the office and on the road winning new work. They need to find new clients and not just squeeze the ones they've got. This just produces an uninteresting portfolio of work with ever decreasing opportunities for the consultants on the ground.

    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

    Exciting work opportunities, great colleagues, nice new offices.

    Inconvénients

    The management team are waiting until the end of the Carlyle era and simply adding to their enormous wealth without investing in the growth of the company or caring about the staff.
    The company was in the papers fairly recently about a questionable commercial agreement with the Government. This was certainly not the first time they have done this, they are unscrupulous.
    The company lacks strategy and drive and treats its employees badly.

    Conseils à la direction

    Time to move on, most have only ever worked at PA and they really need someone new to lead.

    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.

    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.

    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.
