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

    Avantages

    Large (10-25%) pay rises reward upward movement

    Offices in many major cities across the world

    Wide range of work gives plenty of opportunity for lateral career movement

    Sabbaticals offered every few years where you can work elsewhere and remember the horrors of industry to prevent consulting burnout

    Obvious effort directed to internal communications

    Newer offices (e.g. London) are quite nice

    Health and safety in the Melbourn site is gradually improving after a very worrying period caused by an inappropriate head of health and safety

    Inconvénients

    Poor annual pay rises (inflation only)

    Mixed staff quality from uncertain recruitment

    Older offices (e.g. Cambridge) are grim

    A reluctance to acknowledge the existence of internal sales roles that can lead to staff being pulled in multiple directions unnecessarily

    No culture of innovation. This is somewhat ironic given that PA claims to do three things: (consulting, technology and innovation)

    Dated internal systems. E.g. timesheets and job statistics are generated by hand by a department rather than by software which is inefficient and ineffective

    No internal reviews resulting in occasional very poor quality output being delivered to clients

    Annual staff review process is incredibly heavy handed and labour intensive for no obvious benefit

    One size fits all expenses policy only works for staff who are body shopped. Short periods of international travel routinely leave staff significantly out of pocket

    Quality systems are poorly understood intrrnally and not enforced. This raises questions about how the company maintains ISO 9001 or 13485

    Conseils à la direction

    It's silly not to let Innovation and People and Talent perform some internal work to deal with the myriad but very easily fixable problems

    Have some vision!

    Je travaille chez PA Consulting Group à plein temps (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Opportunity to progress quickly up the ranks, huge variety of assignments, decent expenses policy, IT pretty good, new offices impressive

    Inconvénients

    Requirement to undertake corporate overhead work in own time if you want to progress, undisclosed pay bands so unclear where you rank against peers, siloed approach to business development, constant reframing of internal teams.

    Conseils à la direction

    Implement stable internal teams, publish pay bands, provide corporate code to 'charge' internal work.

    Avantages

    Local
    Good people (although fewer since redundancy)
    Private healthcare scheme and dental scheme
    Open plan offices in easily accessible village
    Lifts
    Fantastic company doctor

    Inconvénients

    Lack of progression
    Lack of leadership
    No flexibility or support from line manager
    Poor maternity offering
    Lack of on site facilities. Supply own tea bags etc! No plastic cups even to drink from.
    Cut costs at every opportunity without care for staff.
    Lack of trust, in office politics.
    Appraisal system isn’t tangible and feels pointless
    Expensive canteen
    Stuffy office - either to hot or to cold. No fresh air

    Conseils à la direction

    Listen to your staff. Appreciation goes along way.
    Trust!
    Train your managers

    Je travaille chez PA Consulting Group à plein temps (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    -Flexible working and working from home
    - Good pay and bonus
    -Interesting clients with international work if you are interested in travelling

    Inconvénients

    - This business cares only about sales; the people are irrelevant and uncared for. Top talent is always leaving for this reason.
    - Promotions are based solely on utilisation score (all the way up to senior manager / managing consultant level!). Client feedback and glowing reviews are irrelevant.
    - Management really don’t know what they’re doing.
    - Maternity leave pay is rubbish in comparison to other companies (3 months full pay only)
    - Leaders are not empowered
    - Diversity and inclusion is a tick box activity rather than something that leaders truly care about
    - Uninspiring leaders
    - Nothing new to say in terms of thought leadership and always behind in the marketplace.

    Conseils à la direction

    Invest in leadership development and in more inspiring leaders who provide direction and vision

    Je travaille chez PA Consulting Group à plein temps (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Extensive internal training programmes, big budgets, opportunity to progress. Relaxed working environment and flexible approach are great. Good salaries compared to smaller consultancies.

    Inconvénients

    Fractured projects, odd approach to resourcing, and a general suspicion of the corporate direction amongst the staff. General lack of direction and most tasks are motivated solely by profit.

    Conseils à la direction

    Be honest with the staff, the consulting BS from management is very rarely genuine and people see through it immediately. It simply erodes confidence in the company. Being up front and plain speaking would speak volumes.

    Avantages

    The people. Surrounded by truly talented and inspirational people every day.

    Inconvénients

    PA's senior leaders. Total lack of any meaningful strategy other than to 'sell more' and 'grow' - seem unable to grasp the difference between an org. design and a strategy. Communication from the CEO and MC is virtually non-existent. Bad news is swept under the carpet.

    Conseils à la direction

    Start - talking to people
    Stop - the childish in-fighting. You are the barrier to progress
    Continue - the growth of the D&I agenda

    Avantages

    Really great work, intelligent people and the company is doing well and could have an exciting future.

    Inconvénients

    Doesn’t seem to know it’s identity or direction.
    Rubbish expenses policy.
    Not diverse but more than that, it is the sort of place where it is common for male members of the Board to be in relationships with junior female staff members or their PA’s and it is very open and innapropriate. There is supposed to be a strict conflict of interest policy but it clearly doesn’t apply to Senior Leaders!

    Conseils à la direction

    Have a clear strategy and communicate it.
    Stop inappropriate behaviour in the workplace!
