    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with, testing environments are good for development, good remuneration and team events through the year.

    Cons

    As you'd expect for a consultancy role, living away due to working on client site etc. your line manager can make a huge difference to both happiness and career progress and whilst there are processes to develop line managers, some good project managers but bad people managers slip through.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on culture is good, but need to do more to increase positivity around feedback and make people feel more appreciated for what they bring.

    Pros

    Huge amount of responsibility from an early stage, real focus on personal development. Working on incredibly exciting and meaningful projects, surrounded by fun and supportive team

    Cons

    Lifestyle can be difficult but such is the nature of consulting. Newton do everything they can to support you and make it fun.

    Advice to Management

    Very flat structure so any advice to management can be given directly to them. They want to improve the company as much as anybody

    I worked at Newton Europe full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    My colleagues were all incredibly talented people who were genuinely fun to work with. The recruitment process looks for strong social skills and that is clearly noticeable in the company culture.

    The work itself is diverse and you can get great responsibility early on by proving you can handle it. This isn't a job for people with just great chat or ideas, you actually need to be able to get results by working with people of all layers within the clients.

    Cons

    The lifestyle is full on. You are working away from home Monday to Friday, living in hotels. All is paid for and the company cars are great, but you will not be able to join social events at home during the week.

    Pros

    Amazing people. The company is full of down to earth, intelligent and fun individuals with great support and leadership.

    Cons

    You are away 99% of the time. Mon-Fri (not weekends), but as you are away in a hotel you tend to do quite a few hours. Takes its toll after a while.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are awesome, the best management team I have ever experienced. Kev, Andy, James, Tom, Steve are my favourites.

    Pros

    Interesting, varied and challenging work. Friendly, fun and very open culture. Strong emphasis on feedback and personal development.

    Cons

    Lots of travel and almost all evenings away from home during the week, but this is compensated for by not having an hours culture and always being at home from 6pm on a Friday to 6am on a Monday.

    I worked at Newton Europe full-time

    Pros

    The people - the most enthusiastic and friendly team I've ever seen. The culture - the company spend alot of time and money taking care of you.

    Cons

    The lifestyle - whilst being on the road for the majority of your time might suit some people, it isn't for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on maintaining the culture as you grow. it would be a shame to hit 1000 people but have lost the culture.

    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Huge investment in personal development and the significant responsibility given early on allowing you to develop as fast as you can

     The company is a breath of fresh air to work for, constantly challenging you, each other and our clients

    People are not just colleagues but become close friends. The company culture fosters a fun atmosphere

    Great perks bespoke to Newton

    Cons

    We work on client-site, meaning we have to work hard and deliver value to the client. There is no room to coast along, but that is part of the excitement! The lifestyle, especially early in the career is away from home 4 nights a week, which may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Do not compromise on the quality of people being brought in despite the rapid growth.

    Pros

    Intelligent and motivated people to work with and a big focus on personal development. The responsibility you get early on in your career is unrivalled in the industry.

    Cons

    You work away from home most of the time, but the company makes sure that you don't leave too early on a Monday morning, and you're home by 6pm on a Friday.

    Pros

    A genuinely different consultancy proposition which means we deliver results
    Excellent personal growth
    Steep remuneration curve, equity stake at business manager and above
    Fun and challenging (in a good way) culture with many solid friendships made
    Rewarding work
    Meritocratic recruitment and promotions system

    Cons

    Delivering on client site necessitates being away from home, and though that lessens as you become more senior it never stops being a requirement to be away 2-4 nights per week

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever compromise on the calibre of those you're bringing in or the culture you drive

    I have been working at Newton Europe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The number one pro is the work. Every project i have worked on (and now manage) push us and the client to do something exciting. I get a huge sense of satisfaction from seeing first hand the change that we create.

    The learning and development opportunities in Newton are simply brilliant. 4 years as an experienced hire and i am still on 'the edge of comfort', constantly pushing learning through innovative courses and learning on the job.

    A big pro is the quality of employees. Working with such a talented group, who challenge from top to bottom is hugely rewarding.

    The salary is good, i feel i get rewarded for my effort. Annual leave is generous.

    Cons

    The job requires you to be mobile, so personally i find the travel a bit much on occasion. That being said, i am making it work even with a baby in the family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the growth of the company and focus relentlessly on keeping the culture. The culture is what i found so attractive 4 years ago, and to date, we have maintained it even through doubling in size.
