What is a typical working day like at REPL Group?

Pros

This is a honest review, so in terms of positives regarding the company. - Direct consultants, (Those you will work alongside day-to-day on projects are very supportive, and helpful. - As a consultancy they do provide a reasonable expense policy, for when travelling to client sites. However this is not the best compared to other consultancies. - They have a really good flexible working policy. No one will question why you are not in the office, if you dont need to be. - They have a very flexible dress code, dress for the occasion. - Good turnover, however if you look at the market there are consultancies with a much more significant lower head count (30 max) turning over the same amount.

Cons

I must say, joining REPL from one of the BIG 6 Consultancies, was the worst decision I made. During my joining process, such as interviewers and entry communication, the impression was set out that I would be doing something I had an interest for and what I was expecting. However from my first week, this was not true. The senior management is very poor. They are rude, direct and have no professionalism. During my first week I was given abuse (verbally) by a member of senior management for filling in my timesheet incorrectly. This over the weeks mentally had an effect on my wellbeing and productivity. I was made to feel very small and useless, whilst on calls senior management would constantly smile and laugh at each other whilst I would present my opinions/answers. They do not have great clientele list, mostly 1-3 large accounts and win extensions on those. They are more of a contracting agency, not a consultancy. Any work they can find they will make you billable on it.

Advice to Management

Really understand the direction you want to go in. Sort out your senior management, and have bullying policies in place. If you want to be a consultancy, act like one and get the right people on the board. Half of your managers do not come from a consultancy background, or have worked in various industries / clients. This has been a terrible experience especially for someone in the early stages of there career, and I really do hope you take my review into consideration.

However from my first week, this was not true.

What are working conditions like at REPL Group?

Pros

I joined REPL Group on their Graduate Programme and I have loved it ever since my first day. REPL are always looking for ways they could go above and beyond to support you and make you feel really valued. Pre Covid, the company were always throwing social events from cakes and pizza's in the kitchen at lunch to Christmas parties and activities like Go Ape and Flight Club. Since Covid, they have hosted a multitude of social events to ensure you still feel supported. I don't think I could have found a better company to start my career with and I can't wait to see where I am in 5 years time with them.

Cons

Miss being in the office now the government have advised they can't be open.

Advice to Management

Continue doing what you're doing!
