    Pros

    The work is interesting and varied. There are opportunities to up-skill and to explore different fields of work. Colleagues at all levels are very approachable and always willing to support you. Great social scene, lots of staff events and initiatives. For cyclists, there is secure bike parking, repair stations and showers with towel service.

    After five years working there I don't have any cons.

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time

    Pros

    The people are great - well chosen by the recruitment team. Upper management is approachable. Good work events and sports and social club. Good perks with gym membership and healthcare.

    Cons

    Much the same as the other reviews on here. Salary isn't great, tech stack on projects is often outdated, very long bench time. Upper management is old fashioned in their views.

    Thank you for your feedback and positive comments. It is unusual for a member of our Technology group to be on the bench for extended periods and on the rare occasion it does happen, we take time to find the right role for an individual, rather than just trying to get them off the bench for the sake of it. The technologies we use on some projects are stipulated by our clients, many are leading-edge, others are less so. We are currently working with a number of clients developing highly technical solutions to varying degrees of scale and complexity, both on cloud and on-premise, using a very wide range of technology frameworks and tools We are constantly reviewing our compensation package in the context of ever-changing demands for talent. Our salaries are benchmarked annually against the Tech industry and based on this data and recent hiring levels, we are confident our salaries (as well as bonus and benefits programmes) are at market. We have varying dress codes in place depending on whether staff are working on client site or in the office. Our performance management programme was overhauled a couple of years ago – this was a staff-led initiative and the CPA continues to receive really positive feedback. Career progression is at the heart of our Continuous Performance Assessment programme and is based on merit rather than time at level. Thanks again for your feedback and we wish you well in the future.

    Pros

    The people are excellent, the benefits package is good. Not much overtime required.

    Cons

    The pay falls behind what the market offers and good people leave. People get stuck on projects for years and don't have much say in it. Sometimes caught up in bureaucratic and outdated processes internally. Some projects have stale tech stacks or bad management. Training is mostly an afterthought other than being expected to do 40 hours of it. Limited use of remote working and other modern ways of working.

    Thanks you for your feedback. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed our people-oriented culture as well as our benefits package. Regarding project rotation; our teams move between projects regularly and if a team member wishes to move to another project ahead of schedule, it’s important to discuss that with their Development Manager so that we can put a plan in place to make it happen. We also publish a list of open roles to the team so that staff can express an interest in particular areas to their Managers. We actively pursue projects with modern tech stacks and leading edge tools that make a real difference for clients. Sometimes, when a client is working on large legacy systems, it’s not possible for us or the client to choose a more modern alternative. Thankfully for our teams and our clients, this is the exception rather than the norm. As it’s in everyone’s interest for our staff to develop skills and qualifications, staff are expected to discuss an individual training plan with their Managers during their goal-setting meetings and to drive their training plans themselves based on what they are specifically interested in. We have an extensive training curriculum (including certifications) for all staff including coaching, mentoring as well as conferences and events. We know employees need flexibility and the Working from Home policy is designed to accommodate personal requirements where client work can facilitate this. Thanks again for your feedback. We wish you well in your career.
