    Je travaille chez PA Consulting Group à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    I am an engineer in the Cambridge office. Been at PA for 6 years (from a graduate). I have found the work very rewarding, with opportunities from day one to lead tasks (technical and people), meet and shape client thinking, and develop my technical interests/skills. Ultimately my work is highly specialist, makes a different to the world/clients and is novel (no repeat work, turning the handle). I have had great access to passionate senior employees and management to develop myself and steer my career. No one tells me how to use my time, I can choose what I get involved with. Colleagues are experts, dedicated and fun : and really care about getting high quality work into the real world. I have progressed four roles in six years, and worked only tuns of product development and R&D projects in that time. I have lots of opportunities to write proposals, discuss novels ways to solve new and existing client challenges. Plenty of training.

    Inconvénients

    I can imagine for some people the fact you have to work hard could be a problem. you will have to take responsibility for your own opportunities (e.g. Roles on projects, sectors, type of work, types of technology) and career progression. PA will always support those who are showing ambition. Likewise, work life balance is something the individual has to manage.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to develop wellbeing support and processes. Consider more PV strategic investment in future technologies, so we have the future knowledge and experience, rather than solely relying on client opportunities or quite periods (which are really never).

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

    Avantages

    - good to start your career and learn a lot from very experienced colleagues
    - lots of room for your own initiatives
    - unmatched level of responsibility early on in your career
    - a few exceptional leaders in the firm
    - consulting trainings are abroad
    - smart, interesting & fun people. lots of diversity in people in every single aspect
    - work life balance up to you to manage and dependent on the project, there are those who work 40 hours a week and those who work 60 hours a week.
    - innovative and challenging projects

    Inconvénients

    - zero brand recognition
    - limited international opportunities (though dependent on your area)
    - both yearly salary increases as well as salary increases with promotions are poor
    - bonuses and promotions are determined for a large portion on your utilization of the year before, especially in junior ranks.
    - not many social activities for young people

    Conseils à la direction

    - stay away from secondment models so that junior people are not stuck at the same client for years
    - adjust the salary bands in such a way that someone joining at a junior level who gets promoted internally can get to the same salary level as someone with similar experience who is joining from industry.

    Désapprouve le PDG

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

    Avantages

    Individual freedom, trust, some great colleagues, exposure to senior management of high-calibre clients.

    Inconvénients

    - Bonuses are awarded on profits, while the company is pushing for growing revenue and headcount. Don't expect much bonus at year end.
    - We hire many while suffering a higher than average staff turnover. Quality of the new hires is at risk. Also, profits go down with headcount growth. See previous point.
    - Salary is less than average.
    - The new office looks and is great to work in, but there isn't much available when you want a break, apart from the instant coffee and still water (hot and cold).

    Conseils à la direction

    - Look after your people.
    - Increase transparency, make targets visible and openly discuss the implications of pursuing them.
    - Transform the internal IT: in 2018 I would expect to be able to access the company's intranet from the company owned mobile phone, as well as having a choice of laptops and tablets available for consultants.

    Avantages

    Gain lots of experience very quickly , a chance to try out a number of roles or sectors. Can choose the direction of your career but lots of public sector

    Inconvénients

    Values and environment not for everyone - promotion inside the company can be difficult
    Can be hard to gain any career focus - way too much public sector work over the years

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep sales and delivery separate - combining them does not create excellence in delivery . Pay your consultants what they deserve
