    I worked at Boxwood part-time

    Pros

    Most of the employees I worked with were pretty cool and the job was fun if you like to make coffee, not very hard.

    Cons

    management is not the best, by a long shot. pay isn't great. long shifts, many of which are 6+ hours, which is a long time standing since you aren't allowed to sit.

    I worked at Boxwood for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to work at the most senior levels in UK, European and Global organisations. The projects are typically top priority. There are high expectations to deliver amazing results.

    Cons

    It's hard work and long hours which hurts the work/life balance. Management pushes people to deliver results, sometimes without consideration of ability. It's a growing company in a volatile market. You have to be able to handle risk if you join.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the big picture in mind and bring the rest of us along for the ride.

    Pros

    Great people. Fantastic, challenging projects anchored at the highest level. A open and non-hierarchical culture. A place with real values and personality.

    Cons

    Being in a small company sometimes demands a level of flexibility, creativity and bravery that is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the integrity of the employee proposition, invest more in systems and knowledge to harvest the IP gained from such great work and; keep finding and hiring great people. Keep growing but keep it fun.

    I have been working at Boxwood

    Pros

    I joined Boxwood from a large consultancy and I'm so glad I made the move. Passionate leadership, engaged colleagues and a really good mix of projects makes Boxwood a great place to work.

    Cons

    The challenge of being with a smaller consultancy is that you need to be more flexible with projects. You cannot specialise to the same extent, but the flip side is you're not pigeonholed and have opportunities that you wouldn't get at a large firm

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to bring in the great projects.

    I have been working at Boxwood full-time

    Pros

    - Whatever experience or background you may come from, you will learn and be enriched in some way through the interaction with the diverse and capable individuals in the organisation - Projects are gritty in terms of scope and ambition (no hamster mill projects typically which is a stimulating premise for consultants) - There is always an outlet to make a difference through intellect / hard work - Excellent recruitment effort to fit the right ethos and values of the organisation - Open door to the senior team and that openness is real and not just theoretical (a caring leadership team)

    Show More

    Cons

    - The grittiness of the projects is also a tradeoff (because there is no one size fits all solution engine and for greener employees that can feel like a challenging learning trajectory) - Creative individuals at work results in limited re-use of collateral so some of the foundations get rebuilt each time which takes a toll on the team's time and energy

    Advice to Management

    Invest in managing the knowledge that exists but isnt packaged

    I have been working at Boxwood full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many interesting projects and opportunities. The employees also have diverse experience and often provides new insights to solving problems. As a smaller company, it is also more able to support and realise individual career aspirations as well as invest in social events where colleagues can relax and get to know each other better.

    Cons

    As it is a smaller company, there are less IP from similar, past engagements to utilise and build upon.

    The projects sold and delivered by the company are very interesting and give a good opportunity for development People employed have a go-get attitude and are interesting to work with

    Cons

    Boxwoods management does not act as a coherent team which impact the implementation of the strategy There is a coaching mechanism in place but it still feels like the management has little interest in the people working for the company

    I have been working at Boxwood full-time

    Pros

    As a smaller company it is non-hierarchical which means that if you have any ideas for the company or a on project you will be heard and can make a difference. There is also the opportunity to be part of interesting transformation projects in a number of different sectors, so there is no lack of variety or challenge. Everyone at Boxwood has a career coach to help set your personal learning and promotion goals. The people at Boxwood are fantastic and everyone knows everyone. Personality and fit are very important factors to the company and as a result whether you are working on client site with the team or having lunch at the offices, you will be in good company.

    Cons

    It is a smaller company and this does not suit everyone. There aren't set rules and procedures for everything, when big deadlines are coming up the team works hard and people off project help out and working life is not always predictable.
