Avoid
Consultant (Former Employee) –  London, ENGNovember 4, 2015
Highly political, outdated approach, nepotism is rife, abusive... they have a hire and fire reputation and no duty of care towards employees. You could end up down a mine or a quarry for a year with no choice but do it or leave. Avoid.
Pros
many good (but broken) people working hard
Cons
An attitude of contempt towards their staff. Not a good place to be.

Business Development Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Sandton JHBMarch 13, 2013
• A typical day at work
At the office at 7am or before, leave for home at around 6pm, the
day never stops; we have daily targets that have to be met.

• What you learned
I have learned that I am capable of working well under immense
pressure

• Management
Our management teams are not in unison

• Your co-workers
My co-workers are highly educated and experienced

The hardest part of my current job is to not take negative
responses from possible clients

I enjoy the challenge of sales

long hours, pressure

Not for the family man
Systems & Procedures Management Consultant (Former Employee) –  World WideMay 23, 2014
Although I enjoyed my position as a Management Consultant and loved the traveling, the mix of different businesses, meeting people of all classes, educations and abilities it was hard being a family man and away from the family sometimes a month at a time and then only home for two or three days. Management at times was difficult due to scheduling and projects overlapping. Finally the 17 Owner/Partners could not see eye to eye and dissolved the company.
Pros
travel and comensation
Cons
travel and some managers

Management Consultant/Installation Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 27, 2012
The ability to travel to places the average human will never be able to accomplish is a major benefit at the cost of the typical personal life. The experience across industry and working in different environments is unparalleled.

Méthodologie adéquate mais conditions de travail calamiteuses
Consultant Junior (Former Employee) –  London, ENGNovember 23, 2015
Bonne méthodologie et conseils aux entreprises, bonne conduite de projet. Cependant, impossibilité d'avoir une vie privée (encore moins que dans d'autres cabinets de conseil), aucun respect de l'employé, pas de WE possible, horaires de travail démentiels par moments, trop peu d'échanges et de concertation entre consultants, responsables trop peu présents. Management ne faisant des décisions que sur le court-terme, probabilité de se voir débarquer du jour au lendemain, même avec de bons états de service et/ou plusieurs années passées au sein de la boîte.
Pros
Collègues compétents et expérimentés, certains responsables excellents
Cons
Aucun respect de l'employé, vie privée impossible, charge de travail monstrueuse, décisions de la direction calamiteuses

Empresa com projetos interessantes, mas uma gestão com possibilidade de melhoria
Installation Specialist (Former Employee) –  São Paulo, SPSeptember 25, 2014
Na Alexander Proudfoot, trabalhamos com projetos envolvendo retorno de investimento, o que faz com que nosso dia-a-dia no cliente seja focado em resultados e prazos.
A gerência da empresa busca garantir que iremos atingir o resultado acordado com o cliente e, algumas vezes, esse objetivo fica a frente da gestão interna da empresa e dos funcionários. O ambiente de consultoria possui um alto turnover devido a isso.

Por ser uma equipe pequena, todos trabalham bem entre si, e oferecem ajuda quando necessário.Não há uma competitividade exacerbada entre a equipe.

Tipicamente, o trabalho diário consiste em acompanhar o desenvolvimento e utilização do sistema de gestão e das mudanças de processo implementadas. O trabalho é feito lado a lado com o cliente, visando garantir a sustentabilidade dessas mudanças e, consequentemente, o resultado financeiro vindo delas.
Pros
aprendizado diário, bom sálario, bom plano médico
Cons
bônus atrelados a requisitos que não estão no controle do funcionário

Pros

muitas viagens e pouco tempo para família.
