    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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.

Company Updates

  • Would your organisation survive without #innovation? http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQc28 We don't think so, and neither does Andy Palmer (CEO, Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd) Watch why #InnovationMatters to him and the team at Aston.

    Innovation hub

    PA Consulting Group's innovation research suggests that organisations with an innovative culture are better at driving growth. Above all, they have strong leadership that encourages and nurtures innovation. Our new innovation insights hub includes new research, insights from industry leaders and best-in-class case stories.

  • Technology and automation is not about replacing people with robots – it’s about removing drudgery. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQtnT #InnovationMatters and so do your people.

    If you want to innovate you've got to set your people free

    By Steve Carden, PA technology innovation expert When we work with big companies, we see how they accumulate stuff like compulsive hoarders. They find it difficult to discard policies, processes and procedures. Like all compulsive disorders it's hard to shake off. But if you want your organisation to be innovative, that has to change.
