    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PA Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company healthcare, hours not bad. Good laptops. Some great people to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    Get sent around without any say as to where, most of the work isn't real consulting but public sector body shopping. Some terrible managers and bad behaviours driven by bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your people

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at PA Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    some great people, and really interesting work in the Technology Innovation practice in particular.

    Cons

    i worked within a team with little direction or sense of purpose, everything driven by near term goals of utilisation . Senior hire largely left to just get on and sell with little collaboration or support.

    Advice to Management

    fix the disparity in culture and practice across the firm, and recognise the difference between building something new and simply farming a very big client for years and years. Both necessary, but need to be incentivised and rewarded differently.
